@iniewski: ditto questions... and more! I like the back-end-of-line (BEOL) based process, has promises for mixing technologies. How ever, they also remove ILD's and with the accuracy of backend processes (typically several micron's), I think the sacrificial / keep out areas may be higher than those of a front-end based CMOS MEMS process. But they also claim their main characteristic of Baolabs devices is that they are small -I would need to understand more about their process details to agree with that! MP Divakar

If this works the cost advantage could be huge...has anyone seen any samples or demos that the technology works? Kris

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
