Posifa Microsystems Changes Company Name to Posifa TechnologiesNew Name Reflects Company’s Commitment to Delivering Comprehensive Sensing Solutions
SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 23, 2019 – Posifa Microsystems has changed its name to Posifa Technologies, effective immediately. The new name reflects the evolution of the company and its vision for the future, as it expands its scope beyond sensor chips to providing comprehensive sensing solutions. In conjunction with its renaming, Posifa has also introduced a new website.
Posifa Technologies provides high-performance, low-cost sensors and sensing solutions based on a highly scalable MEMS fabrication platform. The company’s product portfolio consists of gas and liquid flow sensors, air velocity sensors, and vacuum sensors. Posifa’s flow sensors can be found in demanding applications from medical ventilators and oxygen concentrators to the mass flow controllers used in fuel cell generators and semiconductor equipment. The company’s micro-Pirani vacuum sensors are powering the next generation of ultra-portable, internet-connected vacuum gauges.
“Posifa’s focus, in both our product lineup and customer support, has grown beyond micro-electronics to encompass the entire sensing solution, including the die, custom packaging, modules, and more,” said Peng Tu co-founder and CEO of Posifa Technologies. “We wanted a company name that more accurately reflects our commitment to offering this expanded scope of solutions, which provide a key value-add in a wide range of systems. Posifa Technologies does just that.”
Posifa was founded over a decade ago. In 2009 the company launched the industry’s first MEMS thermal flow sensor able to measure both gas and liquid flow directly, and the first monolithic MEMS thermal conductivity sensor for gas detection and for vacuum pressure measurement as a micro-Pirani sensor. In 2010 Posifa added mass air flow sensor modules and Pirani gauges, followed by automotive MAF (mass air flow) modules in 2012. In 2017 the company launched sensor modules for liquid flow and air velocity. The company is presently working on applying its sensor technology to enhanced gas detection (CO2, methane, helium, hydrogen), specific humidity, and infrared motion detection.
