The 2017 revision 01 is now available - The MEMS Cost and Price Model allows the user to easily estimate the manufacturing cost and selling price for most MEMS products.The model supports pre-defined processes and products or the user can define their own. The 2017 revision 01 adds new MEMS and IC processes and new packages plus updated data.

The IC Knowledge - MEMS Cost and Price Model Introduction

The IC Knowledge - MEMS Cost Model is the industry standard for cost modeling of MEMS products. Very easy to use tech model allows for up to two MEMS and up to two integrated circuit die in the same package providing a full MEMS product solution. The model then presents a detailed analysis of cost. The model supports both pre-defined and user defined products, processes and process steps. Cost includes wafer fabrication, wafer test, packaging and final test.

Supported wafer sizes
100mm, 150mm and 200mm.

Supported cost elements
Wafer cost, wafer test, packaging and final test.
