Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems

Intel disclosed on 4/25/01 that it is engaged in R&D and investment activities in MEMS, Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems. MEMS is a technology similar to silicon technology. Silicon technology enables smaller transistors via Moore�s Law. MEMS enables smaller electro-mechanical systems, which can be integrated with integrated circuits. This technology will enhance Intel�s existing products and create new opportunities.

Intel is making strategic investments in a number of MEMS companies such as

Intel�s decentralized R&D model is a faster, better way to gain rapid entry into emerging technologies such as MEMS. Intel is pursuing MEMS R&D both internally and in conjunction with academic institutions such as
  • University of California Berkeley

  • University of Michigan
Intel is also a founding member of the MEMS Industry Group **, a trade association for the US MEMS industry.

Intel will be making further announcements on MEMS in the future. Stay tuned!
