A new all-Chinese player in the MEMS field is Miramems (never heard of them? I hadn't either till a few months ago, and you won't find them at Mouser or Digikey).

I couldn't see where they had an edge over the more established manufacturers, though.

Dear @Battar,

 

Thanks for your note - I don't know Miramems - but definitely will check them out! Do you go to China often? We are hosting a conference in Shanghai in September - check out our events page for mor einfo: www.memsindustrygroup.org/events.

thanks again!

China does have very cheap and skilled labor available which really gives them a great advantage. And because of the availability of cheap skilled labor china is not progressing only in electronic industry but in other sectors as well. And a healthy competition in MEMS will be really great for the consumers.

I'm surprised China hasn't jumped onto the MEMS bandwagon sooner since they manufacture a lot of the world's electronic components.

In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.

Many diverse markets take advantage of semiconductor IP; so many that no one can recite the entire list without leaving off several. So why do we track all the vertical markets? They all have a unique set of requirements and value attributes differently. One major vertical market segment is automotive.
