IPDiA extends its scope and offers semiconductor process optimization and transfer applied to medical and Hi-Rel applications
After obtaining ISO 13485 certification in 2012 for medical devices, and in order to respond to the growing demand of customers in the medical and Hi-Rel applications, IPDiA unveils its ability to offer advanced foundry services.
With four specific projects in the medical and Hi-Rel areas initiated at the beginning of the year and planned to be industrialized in 2014-2015, IPDiA shows outstanding flexibility and adaptability to fulfill a wide range of customer requirements.
From one project to another, the role of IPDiA differs:
- As R&D partner to conduct product development in situ in order to achieve industrialization in line with the development conditions. IPDiA provides a final miniaturized solution thanks to high performance Integrated Passive Devices complemented by assembly of the full system IPD-actives-MEMS. The advantage is obvious with an ‘all in one’ highly reliable solution and therefore improved time to market.
- As high quality electronic components manufacturer. The R&D IPDiA team works on the final stages of the development of components other than passives (MOS transistors, MEMS, sensors, etc.) to make it compatible with IPDiA facilities.
- As clean room operator. IPDiA offers a production line specifically dedicated to the customer's product requirements and ensures the effective process transfer up to the final product industrialization.
To best meet all the criteria requested in medical applications, IPDiA foundry also uses bio-compatible materials such as parylene and platinum commonly used for implantable devices.
IPDiA thereby plays the role of a high quality and high reliability silicon foundry and joins the restricted circle of ISO qualified medical device fabs. These services are provided as an adjunct to what IPDiA is already recognized for in the electronics industry, i.e. leader in passive components on Silicon and in advanced micro-packaging.
