Rogue Valley Microdevices

2018 Edition. In Device Manufacturer of the Year

Founded in 2003 and based in Medford, Oregon, Rogue Valley Microdevices maintains a 200mm MEMS devices foundry, supporting its customers from early R&D through pilot production. As a full-service precision MEMS foundry, the company combines state-of-the-art process modules with the engineering expertise to go seamlessly from custom design to manufacturing. Specializing in MEMS and biomedical device manufacturing, Rogue Valley Microdevices offers a flexible equipment set and smaller batch sizes, playing a critical role in the commercial MEMS manufacturing ecosystem.

What Makes the Company Different?
Rogue Valley Microdevices understands the importance of close customer relationships. The company engages in open dialog with customers, prioritizing their needs and goals. Rogue Valley Microdevices will also support customers’ existing supply chains.

Because MEMS manufacturing processes are unique to each customer, Rogue Valley Microdevices shares engineering-level data with its customers, freeing them to bring up a process at Rogue Valley Microdevices that they will later use for high-volume production at a larger fab.

What’s more, Rogue Valley is truly a MEMS fab. It has gold and platinum as part of its normal processing — without the many restrictions that most other fabs place on their use. Rogue Valley Microdevices is experienced with nanoscale advanced materials, including graphene.

Rogue Valley also maintains the broadest and most comprehensive set of wafer services commercially available — with over 50 unique dielectric and conductive thin films and all services performed in the company’s own class 100 cleanroom.
