Foundry is a booming business that manufactures parts for hundreds of industries. Foundries manufacture semiconductor devices for a variety of end markets. Given the breadth of devices they manufacture, foundries require extensive materials. VEM supplies foundries with sputtering targets and evaporation materials ranging from Aluminum to Zirconium and just about everything in between.
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.
