RF-MEMS Micro-fabrication

We encourage customers interested in RF-MEMS devices to check out the UW-MEMS process.

The UW-MEMS Process is a research-oriented, proof-of-concept, multi-user MEMS fabrication process. It has been developed at the Center of Integrated RF Engineering (CIRFE) at the University of Waterloo. The UW-MEMS Process is a gold-based surface micro-machining process that has seven mask layers. It has been used successfully to build RF-MEMS devices for RF and aerospace communication applications.
