About this institute

Content of Services
  • CMOS consistent prosess support
    Applying design rules based on the Center's unique CMOS1 μm, the Center supports research and development consistently from circuit design, photomask fabrication, wafer process, assembly and testing process, and characterization to failure analysis.
  • MEMS nano-technology support
    The Center supports manufacturing three-dimensional structure consisted of Si based materials mainly (microbrige, cantilever, SiN independence film, etc.) and microdisplacement sensor. Also the Center supports research and development of numerous processes for Si and various MEMS devices used crystal, quartz and sapphire substrates.
  • Human resources development
    The Center conducts the education which enables human resource to create highly practical applications applied nanotechnology, along with basic education in order to use equipment safely such as safety training and operation training.  The education is carried out through IC-MEMS related training seminar.
