(JW Insights) Feb 6 -- China’s leading MEMS sensor provider ASAIR (奥松）spent RMB3.5 billion ($516.2 million) on an 8-inch MEMS industry base project at Western (Chongqing) Science City in southwestern China’s Chongqing City.
The project includes a production line for 8-inch CMOS+MEMS sensor chips, a rapid R&D line for 8-inch MEMS wafers, and a smart sensor R&D center, automotive sensor reliability testing center, industry-university-research research center and ASAIR Semiconductor’s R&D office building, according to Western (Chongqing) Science City.
The R&D and mass production equipment for MEMS piezoresistive, piezoelectric, silicon photonics, magnetic materials, MOX, and microfluidics will greatly improve the success rate of product development.
Founded in 2003, Guangzhou-based ASAIR Electronics has supplied MEMS products widely for applications of home appliances, smart homes, consumer electronics, HVAC, IOT, and automotive.
