About IMT

Recognized in the industry as the leader in complex MEMS and foundry services, Innovative Micro Technology (IMT) offers true turn-key foundry service from design and development to prototyping and volume production.

Why choose IMT?

Our unique capabilities and flexible customer relationships allow us to build strong partnerships to achieve optimal results.

IMT's fully automated 6" fab is built to meet your volume production needs. Because IMT is not a CMOS fab, we offer tremendous materials flexibility from metals and materials, such as Au, Ag, Ni, polymers, and magnetics.

Most important, IMT is committed to continuous development of the next-generation MEMS technology and process know-how. We are building a library of platforms and modules to enable our customers to reach the market cost effectively and at reduced development cycle.
