Ultra Small | Ultra Reliable
We do MEMS with Metal!
HT Micro is a leading manufacturer of ultra miniature switches, sensors, and precision components serving both the commercial and military markets. Started in 2003 as a prototype operation, the Company has grown into a leader of manufacturing packaged devices and precision mechanisms. In 2013 HT built a state of the art high volume, production manufacturing fab that specializes in metal based devices. HT’s technology can be found in a variety of applications ranging from the transmission of high frequency mobile wireless data, to sensing motion without contact, to analyzing g-force signatures.
We do “MEMS with Metal!”. HT’s technology platform integrates traditional integrated circuit and precision machining processes into a micro fabricated manufacturing methodology called high aspect ratio manufacturing (HARM). The manufacturing process employs unique materials and molding approaches to design structures which transform traditional electronic products. Devices are produced on wafers with parallel (batch) processing, which ensures high volume and quality. The applications for HT’s products range from medical devices, munition fuzing applications, and mobile technology infrastructure. HT’s processes provide the ability to maintain tolerances at small dimensions with engineered materials that are reliable in extreme environments.
HT’s core product offering consists of inertial and magnetic switches and precision connectors. Each of HT’s products has revolutionized existing devices by reducing their form factor by at least 10 times. All products are batch microfabricated using metal instead of semiconductor materials. HT uses such metals, to form ultra high aspect ratio features within integrated hermetic packages, to provide high reliability operation of a number of microelectromechanical devices even within harsh sensing environments. All of HT’s products share a similar vision of miniaturization of existing technologies without compromising functional reliability or precision.
