Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems, or MEMS, are micro-structures created using semiconductor fabrication processes. MEMS devices are widely used in consumer, communication, and computer applications. They include gyroscopes, accelerometers, inertial measurement units, pressure sensors, inertial sensors, RF devices, microphones, micro-bolometers, and inkjet heads. VEM is working with many of the leading MEMS suppliers and foundries for both process and packaging solutions.
Light-Emitting Diodes, or LED's are devices that emit infrared or visible light when charged with an electric current. LED's are rapidly being adopted as an efficient and low energy solution in a broad range of applications from indicator lamps to general lighting. LED's are fabricated on compound semiconductor substrates such as GaAs and GaN. VEM is working with many of the largest suppliers of LED devices. We're helping them develop new materials and new solutions to their R&D and production challenges.
