Even with the presence of the consumer electronics giant Samsung and a strong R&D community, Korea’s MEMS ecosystem remains quite small. Among the top MEMS makers, not a single one is based in Korea. However, because of Samsung’s increasingly strong presence in the consumer electronics business, as well as the country’s established high technology base, there may be compelling reasons for the Korean MEMS industry to grow in the near future. GMEMS, a small MEMS foundry, claims to be the only commercial production facility in Korea. We recently spoke with Dr. Scott Lee, the CEO of the company. In this interview, Dr. Lee presents an overview of some of the key MEMS companies and organizations in Korea, as well as the history, current status, and vision of his company.
