This expansion represents phase two development of the new facility, the first of which was completed in April 2012. With capital investments since 2012 totaling more than $7M USD, SDI’s newly expanded operations include brand-new sense element and chip fabrication; a state-of-the-art cleanroom; new product quality testing equipment; and additional 4” MEMS wafer manufacturing.

The expansion encompasses 5000 s.f. of fully dedicated integrated space on the first floor of the new building. Included among the new MEMS fabrication equipment are brand-new custom ovens, shakers and survivability testing technologies that are completely unique and proprietary to the company. With a doubled production capacity, Silicon Designs shall be meeting the ever-increasing customer demand for its MEMS-based accelerometer chips and modules, while continuing investments in R&D and new wafer formulation.

This expansion also allows Silicon Designs to increase production of its 1521 low-noise high-performance MEMS variable capacitive accelerometer series by fifty-fold, to support unprecedented industry product demand.
