LONDON Colibrys Ltd (Neuchatel, Switzerland), a developer of standard and custom MEMS products, is to sell its products in Japan through Midoriya Electric Co., Ltd.
Colibrys does design, development, wafer fab manufacture, packaging, and test of MEMS components.
“Japan is a strategically important market for us since it has a strong customer base for sensors in the harsh environments such as defense, aerospace and geophysics as well as communications sectors,” said Sean Neylon, CEO of Colibrys. “It is essential to have strong regional representation and distribution networks with well trained application people available to support our individual customer needs.”
Yasuo Maruyama, director and general manager of first international division of Midoriya Electric Co., added, “We see Colibrys as one of the few high technology MEMS suppliers world wide with the experience, flexibility and quality that will make us successful in targeting high end market segments such as seismic, defense, aerospace and telecommunications in which we believe Midoriya Electric Co., Ltd. plays a key role.”
Colibrys recently released the SF2005 seismic sensor dedicated to building, machine or structural monitoring as well as earthquake and seismology measurements. The SF2005 MEMS capacitive accelerometer is offering very low noise levels of 2μg/√Hz for a measurement range of ±4g as required by these applications.
The company was spun-out of the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology Inc (CSEM) in January 2001.
