Hi-Tech Cluster Member:

Micro Engineering Consulting Ltd.


Mecon Services provide consultancy services to educational institutions and industrial clients in the semiconductor and related hi-tech sectors.


The company is backed by nearly 40 years of experience in CMOS and MEMS silicon wafer fabrication, and the development of new products in OLED, industrial inkjet, fibre-optic and integrated photonics chip technologies. Knowledge has primarily been gleaned from the UK Cambridge hi-tech sector.


-Training courses in semiconductor technology, covering the basics of silicon wafer fabrication and chip assembly techniques. We explain the materials and methods of how to make a microchip, and how it is connected to the outside world.


-Facilitated workshops and training courses on the application of best practice Lean Six Sigma methodologies for continuous improvement.


-Independent company reviews and manufacturing line audits to improve capacity or longstanding issues. This is achieved by taking a “third eye” perspective, outside your normal company constraints.


-Advice of micro and nanotechnology processing stages and equipment suitability.


-Experts in the field of hard and soft dielectric coatings, including their application in novel developing technologies, such as batteries.


-Laboratory services, including state-of-the-art failure analysis and materials testing either directly, or through an extensive network of worldwide contacts.
