Tech Biz Day with




An event dedicated to all stakeholders in the Medtech ecosystem


From Innovation to Medical electronics:
X-FAB, an enabling partner


Thursday, October 17th, 2019 from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
- Hôtel NH Lyon Airport, Lyon -




If you are a medtech company or a value chain stakeholder in this industry, you may already be aware that “off the shelf” microelectronic solutions are not readily available for your special application. Indeed, you are faced with the challenges of:

  • finding a suitable technology for your application
  • engaging with design engineers to develop your integrated circuits
  • ensuring bio compatibility of your device, typically requiring unusual materials
  • integrating  electronics with optical or mechanical components
  • organizing special purpose miniature packaging…



If this is the case, invest one day of your time to meet X-FAB Semiconductor Foundries, Europe’s leading specialty foundry at the edge of innovation for the medical market:

  • A trusted manufacturing partner offering best in class technologies for medical applications
  • Complying to the highest quality standards
  • Supported by a specialized partner network for the design and supply chain management of medical IC products


We are looking forward to hearing about your application and exploring with you how X-FAB’s technologies and capabilities can help to develop your product ideas for:


  • Neuro-stimulators, -sensors and -prosthetics
  • Ultrasonic transducers and receivers
  • X-Ray image sensors
  • DNA sequencers, cell sorters and patch clamps
  • Lab-on Chip applications
  • Your own innovative applications
