In the past, microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology was in the hands of European and American manufacturers. As science and technology became mature, and the manufacturing process of MEMS (microelectromechanical system) in Asia was gradually formed to reduce manufacturing costs, the European and American MEMS manufacturers gradually released the opportunity and technology of generation, and the Taiwan manufacturers in addition to mastering the industrial and commercial machines in this wave. IC design company can accumulate MEMS design energy and transform to IDM Like. Wu Mingqing, the manager of the Ministry of precision technology development and design, said that Taiwan manufacturers must think about the long time product development process and the need for a more complete industrial chain to truly seize the MEMS market. The design architecture of MEMS is different from the general specific application integrated circuit (ASIC). In the process, a more special manufacturing machine is needed and a long time of design and development is needed to complete the design of a MEMS product. For example, Wu Mingqing, the manager of the Ministry of development and design of precision technology, the MEMS factory, such as DLP and Knowles, is determined. When the MEMS product is developed, it takes 20 and 14 years for the final product to go on the market, and even the IvenSense of the world's first six axis gyroscope will take 8 years to produce the product. The time and human cost of these manufacturers are not the Taiwan manufacturers who pursue immediate actual revenue sources. The mode of operation accepted. However, at this stage, Taiwan manufacturers begin to synthesize and seal the key manufacturing process of the two MEMS, and gradually build a stronger MEMS manufacturing capability. The MEMS manufacturing in European and American countries will provide more business opportunities for Taiwan manufacturers. On the other hand, in addition to industrial and commercial machines, Taiwan IC design manufacturers can also take this opportunity to achieve the long-term goal of IDM Like transformation. Qiu Minghui, a researcher at the center for crystal research, pointed out that MEMS and the production chain of the transistor are quite different from that of the MEMS wafer manufacturing. The main reason for this 50% proportion is that MEMS only needs 0.35 to 0.5 micron (mu m) old technology, and no higher order technology is needed, but the precision of encapsulation is much higher than transistor encapsulation. The test time is longer and the MEMS post company can benefit from this MEMS business opportunity, and the Taiwan wafer manufacturer also aims at the following. Segment the market to seal up the market, set up a subsidiary company or set up their own ability to seal up the market, such as TSI, Li Shun Precision Technology and so on, by the maturity of the wafer subcontractor model, making the process of the process of the process specification, will lead the MEMS industry to shift, and help the development of the MEMS IC design company. Qiu Minghui stressed that the MEMS market in mainland China will rise up after the introduction of MEMS components on the White Brand phone, and it is also a very good training opportunity for the Taiwan IC designer to prepare for the transformation of IDM Like.
