Since the creation of our Minnesota site’s custom foundry business in 2013, we’ve partnered with innovators to co-create disruptive and highly differentiated process technologies for imaging, sensing, genetic sequencing, quantum computing and numerous other applications. We offer comprehensive integration expertise that spans MEMS, photonics, CMOS and PICs for monolithic or wafer-level integrations. Our TaaS engagement model is geared to engage customer ideas as early as MRL 3 and accelerate bespoke or highly differentiated process integrations to production to address high quality markets including medical, automotive and industrial among others.
SkyWater is the pioneer of the Technology as a Service model and specializes in streamlining new ideas from concept to production. This is an ideal engagement model for MEMS, photonics and emerging technologies that require custom process integration.Technology as a Service
