This volume demonstrates show cost analysis can be adapted to MEMS, taking into account the wide range of processes and equipment, the major differences with the established semiconductor industry, and the presence of both large-scale, product-orientated manufacturers and small- and medium-scale foundries. The content examines the processes and equ
