Contract processing services for piezoelectric MEMS, and PZT and non-lead material high performance piezoelectric deposition services, sales of underlayers and single crystal deposition substrates, Piezoelectric MEMS design support, etc.
We offer flexible services such as buffer wafer supply, and specific MEMS processing to meet your requirements. Please feel free to contact us.
By combining the plasma control technology cultivated through DLC deposition and inorganic crystal control technology, we have succeeded in single-crystallization of various piezoelectric materials, which were considered extremely difficult to produce, and established manufacturing methods.
It can be adapted to various semiconductor processes and exhibits significantly higher properties than existing polycrystalline materials.
