Headquarters of Safran Sensing Technologies Norway

Safran Sensing Technologies Norway AS

Based out of Horten, about 100 km south of Oslo, Safran Sensing Technologies Norway has, for more than 35 years, played a significant role in the development of the global MEMS industry.

Safran Sensing Technologies Norway operates its own 150 mm wafer fab for advanced MEMS processes with several fully equipped assembly and test lines. Over the years, more than 250 million pressure sensors, more than 280 million accelerometers, and more than 2 million gyros have been shipped to customers for use in wide range of applications. Probably the most important reason for this success is the extremely low failure rate experienced by customers relying on Safran Sensing Technologies Norway products; less than 1 failure in 10 million parts shipped.

The roots of Safran Sensing Technologies Norway and its technology go back to 1965.

The legacy of silicon-based sensors at Safran Sensing Technologies Norway goes even further back. Already in the mid-sixties the company started up with pressure sensors and accelerometers based on piezoresistive micromachined silicon strain gauges and from the late seventies with etched diaphragm silicon sensors.
