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

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.

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!

Karen

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.
