Singapore, Murata team up on advanced MEMS
The partnership will draw on IME’s state-of-the-art research facilities and established capabilities in MEMS processs platforms, and Murata’s expertise in developing, manufacturing and supplying electronic components.
The two parties aim to research capabilities in MEMS devices to develop smaller, more powerful and more affordable components for the consumer, healthcare and industrial sectors.
The partnership is described as one of Murata’s largest research and development tie-ups outside Japan although no value or duration was put on the tie-up. It is notable that Murata shares are traded on the Singapore stock exchange as well as on the Tokyo stock exchange.
"This partnership will fuse IME’s R&D expertise with Murata’s wealth of industry experience to catalyze the development of more advanced and commercially-ready MEMS for powering the next generation of electronic devices," said Professor Dim-Lee Kwong, executive director of IME, in a statement.
