X-FAB expands foundry offering for silicon-based microfluidics: Page 2 of 2

May 19, 2020 //By Julien Happich
In order to address heightening demands, X-FAB Silicon Foundries has taken steps to simplify the integration of microfluidic elements with CMOS and SOI dies.

The company is continuously expanding its portfolio of standard process blocks covering these capabilities. Rather than beginning complex microsystem design projects from scratch, it will be possible to re-use existing process IP, and thereby get a head-start. This will help to accelerate product development cycles, as well as facilitating the scale up to volume production. Among the multitude of new opportunities envisaged are development of MEMS solutions for drug administering, flow metering and pollution monitoring.

“We are seeing a growing number of requests to implement silicon-based microfluidics. As a consequence, our engineering team is striving to bring two worlds together; so that medical OEMs' deep understanding of physiology and fluid analysis can be combined with X-FAB’s knowledge of high-volume semiconductor manufacturing technologies,” states Volker Herbig, VP of X-FAB’s MEMS business unit. “We are excited to help our medical customers in developing their smart integrated microfluidic systems via the multitude of new process capabilities we can now offer.”
