Qualtré is the leading developer of Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) MEMS-based silicon sensors. We offer design engineers the best price/performance inertial sensor solutions for a wide range of current and emerging applications in automotive, industrial, aerospace and high-performance consumer product markets. The company’s intellectual property portfolio consists of over 40 patents filed or issued covering a wide range of device architectures and proprietary process innovations. With the introduction of its BAW MEMS™ multi-axis gyroscopes, a new class of gyros are now available that minimizes what is typically the largest source of error: excessive drift caused by shock and vibration — and delivers a unique combination of high-performance, lower cost and environmental ruggedness, particularly well suited to harsh environments. Qualtré’s MEMS gyros are produced with much lower costs and tighter manufacturing tolerances than legacy products like tuning fork gyroscopes. The company is well positioned to service the challenging requirements of emerging applications such as drones, autonomous vehicles, and high integrity navigation systems.
The Qualtré management team has deep experience in the MEMS and semiconductor industry with access to the country’s top engineering talent for MEMS-based sensors. The company has assembled a product development team with strong backgrounds in MEMS, ASIC, Assembly, and Test Engineering – every critical aspect of MEMS-based product development. The company is located near Boston, MA.
All the Areas of Expertise Needed for MEMS Commercialization
With a growing demand for its BAW MEMS gyroscopes, Qualtré has extended its sales reach by partnering with Alps Electric (www.alps.com), enabling the company to market and sell its high performance BAW MEMS gyroscopes worldwide. Alps Electric is a global company based in Tokyo, Japan with distribution channels in many growing markets, including automotive, industrial, and high end consumer products. The company is an established sensor supplier with a diverse product portfolio and experienced sales/application support teams in place worldwide.
