re: MEMS foundry licenses TSV tech to prototyper

Some of the TSV-related patents date back to 1980's so there would have to be some differences in the technology and the claims thereof in Silex patents on TSV. I am not familiar with Silex's claims, but I have a hunch it is very process-specific. MP Divakar

I see that AMFitzgerald also uses Sil-Via for MEMS prototyping

SilVia seems to have been around for several years. Silex seems to be gaining ground.

I'm wondering about the solidity of SILEX patents on this technology when I see the initial Thales patent on this TSV technology (« Method for producing via-connections in a substrate and substrate equipped with same » - WO 01/09944)...

Sil-Via is a via-first platform for MEMS development which has been in production for over five years. The license to Nanoshift allows them to offer this technology as a basis for prototyping work for their customers, instead of having to engage directly with Silex. Due to the R&D nature of much of MEMS, this type of move allows Silex to reach a much broader audience, and gives Nanoshift the ability to offer advanced packaging options to its customers with a much more seamless handoff back to Silex for production down the road.

Any amount for this transaction and what is the unique feature of this technology for this license? Anyone to explain more?


Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
