Micralyne Partners with Nanoshift, Expanding One-Stop Solution for MEMS Design, Rapid Prototyping and Foundry Services

--Integrated approach mitigates risk, eases path to volume production

EDMONTON, Alberta & EMERYVILLE, Calif. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — November 7, 2011 — Micralyne, Inc., a leading pure-play MEMS foundry serving high-performance biomedical, telecommunications and industrial markets, continues to expand the traditional role of foundry beyond manufacturing house. Today the company announced a partnership with Nanoshift, LLC, a product development firm specializing in emerging technologies, which places design, process development, fabrication and packaging under its purview. The more integrated approach to the design and production of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) reduces the barrier to entry for companies that want to commercialize MEMS devices for volume production.

“Micralyne’s partnership with Nanoshift strengthens our position as a one-stop shop for the design, prototype, fabrication and packaging of differentiated MEMS devices,” said Nancy Fares, CEO of Micralyne. “Through our integrated approach, Nanoshift is no longer a third-party supplier; they are an essential part of a business process that we own, from start to finish. This business model addresses the most fundamental challenges of fabless companies. It minimizes risk and cost for customers who want to move beyond proof-of-concept to volume production—regardless of their expertise in MEMS.”

“Nanoshift’s relationship with Micralyne supports the spirit of innovation by streamlining the process of getting a MEMS device to market,” said Salah Uddin, Co-founder of Nanoshift. “This integrated model removes the ‘fear factor’ in moving IP through prototype, design and production. Technology transfers are no longer hand-offs; they are integral steps in a carefully articulated business process. And customers work with a central project manager—rather than a handful, which eases communication during each phase of the process. This unified approach improves quality and speeds design-to-delivery over piecemeal solutions.”
