All of VTI Technologies’ MEMS products are based on SOI wafers. The company’s CMA 3000 multi-axis accelerometer is the “stride sensor chip” in the miCoach real-time training system launched by adidas and Samsung in '09. See http://www.advancedsubstratenews.com/2010/12/micoach/
VTI is also a leader in "cavity SOI" in which the SOI wafer has pre-etched cavities, so they "focus on their core competencies in reducing development time, which in turn can even lower production costs" (Yole). http://www.advancedsubstratenews.com/2011/03/soi-for-mems-a-promising-material/
