Helsinki, Finland-Touted as the world's largest silicon micro-machined sensor manufacturing plant, Breed Technologies Inc. has announced the opening of FAB 2, an 11,700-sq. ft. facility constructed to provide expanded capacity for the firm's subsidiary VTI Hamlin, a supplier of micromachined silicon capacitive sensors. FAB 2 is equipped to produce 10 million acceleration, pressure or yaw rate-sensing elements annually, with enough expansion capacity for annual production of up to 50 million sensing elements a year. The new facility was designed to simplify the complicated cyclical flow of semiconductor processes while maximizing visual control of production.
