After being integrated in the latest Apple’s iPhone in 2013, Bosch is now the top MEMS supplier according to Yole’s Top 30 MEMS Ranking 2014. This strong growth is both due to the consumer and automotive businesses of Bosch.

With a size of only 1.4mm3 (1.2×1.5×0.8mm), the BMA355 is the smallest MEMS accelerometer on the market and features 60% volume reduction compared to state of the art 2x2x0.9mm MEMS accelerometers. This size reduction has been made possible by the use of Through-Silicon Vias (TSVs) in the ASIC, enabling a WLCSP package. All the manufacturing steps are realized at the wafer-level. This is the first introduction of a MEMS component with TSV Via-Middle process.

The BMA355 is a 12-bit digital resolution accelerometer well suited for applications requiring extremely small form factors.

The report is including a detailed technical and cost comparison with state of the art MEMS accelerometers from STMicroelectronics and mCube.
