The Changing Landscape of MEMS Foundry Models: Understanding In-house, Fab-lite and Fabless

MEMS Executive Congress 2011

November 2-3, 2011
Monterey Plaza Resort & Spa
An annual executive forum promoting the commercialization of MEMS

“One size fits all” just does not apply in MEMS manufacturing. Heterogeneous models—in-house, fab-lite and fabless—offer flexible approaches to the varied requirements of MEMS fabrication, empowering companies to make the choices that will keep them competitive.

At the seventh annual MEMS Executive Congress , our panel of global MEMS fabrication business leaders will boldly explore the diverse approaches to manufacturing MEMS. Where are we today, how did we get here, and where are we going? What is driving this new era of fab-lite and fabless manufacturing and why do some companies make the choice to keep their fab in-house? And, how do variables such as current processes, price and time-to-market pressures, and the need for flexibility affect a foundry’s strategy?

Representing very different perspectives on the manufacturing spectrum, our panelists will offer candid opinions on how to come out a winner in this increasingly competitive and revenue-generating market.

Please join us Thursday, November 3, 2011, 10:00-10:45 a.m., for the panel, MEMS Foundry Models—In-House, Fab-Lite, Fabless.

Featured Speakers

Moderator: Nancy Fares, President & CEO, Micralyne

In addition to all the great content, MEMS Executive Congress also provides attendees plenty of networking time throughout the event that enables interaction among peers in a fun and casual environment.

Wednesday Evening, November 2 – Dinner in the Open Sea Wing at the Monterey Aquarium.

Sea Turtle Monterey Bay AquariumSit by the largest window in North America and enjoy a fish-eye view of the sharks, tunas and sea turtles while chatting about that day’s panel of MEMS market analysts and their forecasts.  Take a stroll and drift away with the jellies as you sample delicacies and finger foods.

Thursday Evening, November 3 – Dinner at the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa

Dinner will be served at the host hotel, located on Cannery Row, the historic site of now-defunct sardine canning factories made famous by John Steinbeck. You’ll view the beautiful Monterey Bay while dining and exchanging conversation about the future of the MEMS industry.After dinner, we’ll continue with libations at the lobby bar. Drinks are sponsored by Coventor. Networking

Friday Morning, November 4– Golf Outing Sponsored by Lam Research

Networking The networking opportunities don’t have to end on Thursday. Join us for a golf outing at Pacific Groves Golf Links. Situated on the tip of the scenic Monterey Peninsula just 2.5 miles away from the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Spa, this historic 18-hole golf course overlooks Point Pinos and the Pacific Ocean and features both parkland and links-style nines.
