X-FAB Silicon Foundries Acquires MEMS Foundry Itzehoe

X-FAB Silicon Foundries recently made two announcements. First, the company has increased its share in the German-based MEMS Foundry Itzehoe GmbH. X-FAB Silicon Foundries now owns 51% of MFI. It’s previous stake was 25.5%. X-FAB also announced it renamed MFI to X-FAB MEMS Foundry Itzehoe.

MEMS Foundry Itzehoe complements the MEMS capabilities and resources of the recently announced X-FAB MEMS Foundry in Erfurt, adding technologies for micro sensors, actuators, micro-optical structures and hermetic wafer-level packaging processes.

X-FAB MEMS Foundry Itzehoe will continue its long-term cooperation with the Fraunhofer ISIT MEMS Group to accelerate the exploitation and commercialization of existing and emerging technologies, applications and intellectual property for automotive and other markets.

According to X-FAB Group, X-FAB MEMS Foundry Itzehoe will play an important role in the implementation of the company’s MEMS strategy. The combination of the versatile MEMS-specific technology portfolio at the Itzehoe-based MEMS foundry and the development expertise of Fraunhofer ISIT greatly expands the capabilities of X-FAB’s technology offering.
