NO RATINGS
Even in the top 20 MEMS foundaries, a few companies dominate the list. The top company reported revenues that is almost 6 times what the next best had to offer, and 50 times what the 20th company earned. It almost seems like one huge company had cornered the market. Focusing on their niches would be the best way the rest of them can survive, and true enough, Silex Microsystems AB achieved 85 percent growth to $37 million in sales. That was astounding!

None in the Silicon Valley (which should be renamed to Web Valley; not much Silicon fab going on there any way!). Years ago there were quite a few (EG&G's IC Sensor Divsion, SciTech, etc) but now there are none, unless I am mistaken. The $billions the experts are forecasting for the MEMS market, I wouldn't be surprised if there is an increased M&A activity later this year and next. MP Divakar

Nice list! I would have expected microfabrica to on the list...

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
