Semefab's Fab Operations have an impressive track record of
process development, process induction and volume foundry
supporting Silicon based MEMS, CMOS, Bipolar, ASIC & Discrete
Founded in 1986, Fab 1 supports a diverse process portfolio of
4" CMOS, Bipolar, ASIC & Discrete technologies. At a component
level, Fab1 fabricates precision analogue components, JFET
transistors, Bipolar transistors, Photo Diodes, Mixed Signal ASIC
and supports the 'front-end processing' for multiple MEMS
With a £15.2 million pound investment, match funded by Scottish
Enterprise and the Technology Strategy Board, Semefab's Fab2
became operational during August 2009 supporting the market with 6"
and 4" MEMS technologies.
Fab2's development business model commercialises research &
development outcomes in a cost effective manner, whilst its volume
model supports its customers' volume demand. Development
projects transfer seamlessly from development to volume utilising
the same foundry equipment and personnel.
Fab2 presently supports a foundry portfolio of pressure sensors,
gas sensors, thermopiles, viscosity sensors, accelerometers and has
a range of development projects progressing through the technology
cycle towards volume foundry.
To compliment Fab2 and provide complete 6" foundry, Semefab's
Fab3 became operational in February 2011. Fab3 supports
CMOS/Bipolar technologies and the 'front-end processing' for 6"
Semefab's commitment to quality, continuous improvement and
environmental compliance is acknowledged by ISO9001 and ISO14001
Semefab is located in Glenrothes, on the East coast of Scotland,
a 45 minute drive from Edinburgh International Airport and an 80
minute drive from Glasgow International Airport.
Semefab's current workforce consists of 75 employees.
