Coventor, a developer of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) software, has teamed up with Kyocera to produce software for the packing of the miniscule MEMS in traditional electronic chips.

Kyocera is a global developer and producer of electronics products.
The companies say the new software will “enable MEMS microchips to be encapsulated in standard chip packages so that they may be protected and used in consumer or other devices.”

Initial markets for the product are inertial sensors, such as airbags, and infrared MEMS devices. The product will be available in the third quarters, the companies said.
