Kyodo International

We Kyodo support customer MEMS business by offering the right solution of MEMS design, development tools, ASIC design, bio-chip providing, prototyping fabrication and volume production which fits your budget and schedule by utilizing our own facilities, knowledge and global partner network. Especially by partnership with Swedish MEMS foundry, Silex Microsystems, we are able to provide volume production service of customer designed MEMS device. 


Silex Microsystems

The sensor industry is constantly inventing new ideas that are changing our everyday lives. MEMS based sensors have been marching into the world we live in over the last two decades and there is no sign that this evolution will come to a halt anytime soon. In fact, we have most likely only seen the beginning as the industry is getting busier every day, creating new innovations for Med-Tech, Smart Cities, IoT, VR/AR, Autonomous Vehicles and more.

Silex is a leading Pure Play MEMS foundry provider with decades of experience manufacturing customized MEMS products for innovation leaders in the MEMS industry. This presentation will share some of the fundamental support systems and protocols developed by Silex to help MEMS foundry customers get to market with a competitive product in the fastest possible time. The presentation will also share Silex plans to build out large scale wafer foundry manufacturing capacity for new and innovative MEMS and sensors in its 200mm wafer “Fab3” currently under construction in Beijing.
