Automotive applications have been a major MEMS application development driver, while consumer applications, such as printer inkjet cartridges, DMD, microphones and inertial sensors, have driven unit volumes and mass production.
Mobile devices integrate many MEMS sensors due to their small-packaging size. Specifically, MEMS microphones have become more common due to their small size and SMT process utilization. This trend requires tighter dispensing requirements. Nordson ASYMTEK has addressed this challenge through continuous product improvements.
The photo on this page depicts a sealing dispense application on a PCB using our auger valve. Nordson ASYMTEK dispenses a small line width applicable to this packaging requirement.
