In an effort to fully serve soaring demand, STMicroelectronics has decided to considerably raise its MEMS production capacity to more than 3 million sensors a day by yearend.

"We are beefing up our manufacturing machine to anticipate and encourage the adoption of MEMS into such high-growth markets as healthcare, industrial and automotive. ST is well-positioned to make micro-machined sensors ubiquitous in all domains of life," said Benedetto Vigna, group vice president and general manager of ST's MEMS, Sensors and High Performance Analog Division, in a statement.

ST claims it was the first major manufacturer in the world to start producing MEMS devices on 8-inch silicon wafers in 2006, and has expanded its MEMS manufacturing facilities since then to include: Agrate and Catania, Italy (sensor fabrication); Rousset and Crolles, France (logic die production); and Kirkop, Malta and Calamba, Philippines (assembly and testing).
