Southern Oregon’s Rogue Valley Microdevices Advances Microelectronics for Biomedical Devices --Medford, Oregon company manufactures tiny chips with potential life-changing functionality
MEDFORD, OR -- (September 28, 2018) – Rogue Valley Microdevices is a rarity in microelectronics manufacturing. It is hundreds of miles from both the Bay Area — an epicenter of the microelectronics industry — and from greater Portland, which counts Intel and other corporate giants among its leading employers. It is one of the few foundries in the world nimble enough to work with nanoscale materials such as graphene, which exists on the same scale as the molecules found in solid, liquid and gaseous chemical compounds. Its CEO is a Latina woman who is also running for Oregon State Senate. Although it has less than 30 full-time employees, its engineering team has successfully tackled manufacturing projects that are too challenging for its larger competitors.
