The IC Knowledge - MEMS Cost and Price Model

IC Knowledge, Date of Publication: May 28, 2019

The IC Knowledge - MEMS Cost Model is the industry standard for cost modeling of MEMS products. Very easy to use tech model allows for up to two MEMS and up to two integrated circuit die in the same package providing a full MEMS product solution. The model then presents a detailed analysis of cost. The model supports both pre-defined and user defined products, processes and process steps. Cost includes wafer fabrication, wafer test, packaging and final test.

We recently added VCSEL coverage to the model and we are now working to expand that out to cover LEDs in general.

Supported wafer sizes
100mm, 150mm and 200mm.

Supported cost elements
Wafer cost, wafer test, packaging and final test.
