Eyelit's Award-winning Integrated Manufacturing Execution Software Suite Selected by Micralyne to Support Surging Demand at MEMS Manufacturer

January 26, 2006
SAN JOSE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)—Eyelit, Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control, and coordination of manufacturing operations for the electronics, life sciences, and semiconductor industries, announced today that Micralyne, a developer and OEM manufacturer of MEMS components, purchased Eyelit's award-winning Enterprise Manufacturing Execution suite to manage and control its production operations. Micralyne is the tenth prominent MEMS manufacturer to recently select Eyelit's software, making it the standard in this fast-growing industry.

Eyelit was selected because of a proven quick-implementation capability, application ease of use, and demonstrated lowest total cost of ownership in the industry. It was also important for Micralyne to select a product that provided complete product traceability out of the box through complex manufacturing processes and module assembly.

"Micralyne was looking for an MES system to electronically track and gather data on our complex MEMS process. We needed a system simple enough to get up and running quickly, yet scalable enough to handle future growth. After evaluating several packages, we chose Eyelit due to its breadth of features, scalability, and flexible configuration capability," states Chris Lumb, President and CEO of Micralyne.

"Eyelit's innovative solution is the best value for companies looking to gain operational efficiencies, track and manage compliance in a cost-effective manner. No other solution in the industry today can be implemented as quickly as Eyelit Manufacturing, which was critical for Micralyne. Eyelit uniquely provides a comprehensive, yet simple-to-implement solution for even the most complex manufacturing processes," stated Dan Estrada, Vice-President of Sales and Business Development.
