SAN JOSE, CA - In response to the success of Technology Innovations Showcase (TIS), SEMI has expanded the idea, introducing TechXPOTs to SEMICON West 2006, July 11-14 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA.
A typical phone call to a package manufacturer begins with: “I have this chip, what package do you have that will fit?” Next comes the basic questions: “What size is your chip? How many pads does it have? Does it need to be hermetic? Do you want it to be surface mountable? Leaded? Ball grid array? Oh, and by the way, how fast does your chip operate?” Depending on the answer to the last question, everything else becomes moot.
The AKU2000 surface-mountable complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) microphone integrates an acoustic transducer, output amplifier, and 4th-order sigma-delta modulator in a single chip.
