MEMS Cost and Price Model 

The MEMS Cost and Price Model is designed to easily calculate the manufacturing cost and selling price of most MEMS products. The model supports up to two MEMS die and up to two IC die in the same package with packaging and test costs. The model forward forecasts out to 2020. 100mm to 200mm wafer sizes are supported. Wafer fabrication, test and packaging costs are all covered. The price includes twelve months of upgrades with phone and email support. The model is delivered by email within a few hours of an order being received. Requires Microsoft Excel 2007 or higher to be installed on the user’s computer. A single user license allows one user on one computer.

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

Who should buy this product

The IC Knowledge - MEMS Cost and Price Model is widely used by IDMs, OEMs, Fabless companies, Analysts, Materials Companies, Consultants, Electronics Companies and many others. The model is used for benchmarking, evaluating pricing, market research and many other uses. Our model customers include most of the worlds largest IDMs, OEMs, Fabless and Electronics companies.

Revision 1500 - Added 24 pin open cavity package with 2 die. Added Murata MEMS fabs. Added Finland country data. Updated labor rates. Added Murata Accelerometer/Gyro process. Added AMR process. Updated the substrate costs.

Revision - 1501 - updated the IC cost engines to the latest IC Cost and Price Model version and added several new processes. Updated the MEMS cost engines to incorporate our newest cost modeling technology. Added comment column to the 'Main Selections' sheet. Added selected costs to the 'Main Selections' sheet. Added the ability to adjust utilization to the 'Main Selections' sheet. Added 'Process Adders" sheet to allow process steps to be added to the IC1 and IC2 processes. Fixed a bug where special process step materials costs were being added into the cost even if the step wasn't used. Added 3 blank unlocked sheets to support customization and note taking. Redesigned the 'Main Selections' sheet. Added the ability to override the model calculated wafers costs, package cost, package yield, class test cost and class test yield on the 'Product Cost Summary' sheet. Relabeled the sheet tabs to more clearly specify the sheets purpose. Added Robert Bosch SMB465 product.

System Requirements
The Model runs inside of Microsoft Excel and requires the user to have Excel 2007 or higher installed on their computer. The model does not run in any other "Excel compatible" programs.

Model Cost and How to Buy
A single user license for one person to install the model on one computer is $1,900. An enterprise license allowing an unlimited number of users at a company is $6,783.  The model is delivered by email within a few hours of our receiving an order. The model cost includes twelve months of updates plus twelve months of reasonable levels of phone and email support. A Web Ex training session is available on request. Renewal costs at the end of twelve months are discounted 1/3 off the current prices.
