VTI to enter MEMS timing device market

VTI Technologies plans to enter the micro-electromechanical (MEMS) timing device market with the launch of its first timing device in early 2011. The company manufactures silicon-based capacitive sensors using its proprietary 3D MEMS technology.

The timing device products will leverage VTI’s 3D MEMS and packaging technology. VTI uses its Chip-on-MEMS technology to produce chip-scale packages for its consumer-based sensors, and a reverse configuration of MEMS-on-Chip (MoC) for oscillators.
