The society presents this award for major contributions to electronic manufacturing technology, and cited Reichl's work in research and education in the packaging industry, and his focus on system-integration technologies for chip/wafer and 3D packaging activities.
(April 19, 2007) LYON, France Yole Dévelopment compiled a list of major MEMS manufacturers globally, market drivers, and shifts in the industry makeup in a report "Analysis: Top 30 MEMS Manufacturers." The top 30 manufacturers Yole names represent 88% of the total MEMS industry, with $5.2B in 2006 sales. Minimum sales in the top ranking grew to $26 million, up from $15 million in 2005. Yole also noted that military MEMS business is difficult to track, and thus may represent a larger portion of the industry than predicted.
