Yole Développement recently published its annual ranking of the top 30 MEMS companies based on 2009 sales revenue — and it’s heartening to see so many MEMS Industry Group members represented among them.
Some notable highlights include:
- Texas Instruments, maker of DLP projection and display technology, returns to the number one spot after a two year hiatus, with $648 million in sales for 2009.
- Robert Bosch, a major supplier of MEMS for the auto industry, and consumer MEMS through its Bosch Sensortec subsidiary, returned to the number 3 spot with an estimated 125% growth for 2009.
MIG member InvenSense also grew at an explosive rate of 497% for 2009, according to Yole’s chart of 2008/2009 growth rates. InvenSense is a maker of MEMS gyroscopes for numerous consumer electronics applications, including gaming and mobile handsets.
