is bigger than ever
The need is big. Many industries today have a need for advanced, ultra-miniaturized products that currently don’t exist. Our passion is to provide next generation micro-products that bring our customer’s visions to life.
Xidas uses a new multi-patented miniaturization paradigm that combines unique manufacturing technologies, design methodologies, and diverse materials processing called Amalga™ to produce micro-scale solutions for industrial, life-tech and IoT applications that were
a new miniaturization paradigm
Conducting new product research and development and custom manufacturing of ultra-small and micro-3D precision sensors and actuators to your order and specification. Moving micro-fabrication beyond the limits of semiconductor-style processing to true heterogeneous integration at the microscale. Xidas can produce microscopic devices and systems that were previously impossible to build. With Amalga™, the possibilities are staggering.
Fifteen years ago, Prof. Mark Bachman spent years developing and designing micro-devices at the University of California Irvine, using MEMS semiconductor technology. Dr. Bachman was frustrated, he could not make many of the products requested by industry: 3D micro-devices that used specialty materials and complex assemblies, for applications such as biomedical implants and industrial sensing.
Leveraging over $20 Million of funding from government and commercial grants, Prof. Bachman led a research effort developing a new form of micro-manufacturing, one that could demonstrate dozens of different types of highly functional, complex, 3D micro-devices that can not be produced by semiconductor-style processing, nor by precision manufacturing alone.
In 2015 Integra Devices was formed to commercialize this technology. Now Xidas, the company stands out as the new face of miniaturization, creating neXt-generation Integrated Devices And Systems for IoT, industrial, and med-tech industries.
