FreescaleFreescale’s Oak Hill Fab in Austin, Texas has established a 200mm MEMS production line, which, the company has said, was needed to address market demands for MEMS-based sensors.  Freescale has an existing 150mm MEMS line in Sendai, Japan.

The shift to 200mm MEMS production means an increased capacity while offering reduced production costs. The MEMS-related technologies available to Freescale now include connectivity, embedded control and signal conditioning.
