As devices continue to shrink, project managers are faced with a continual challenge to reduce footprint of components, while meeting smaller budget and shorter time to market goals. Understanding the available component manufacturing methods is critical to meeting cost / performance targets and overall project success. This paper analyzes the benefits and trade offs between several key metal micro fabrication methods (stamping, photochemical etching, micro machining) and is intended as a guide to selecting the best manufacturing method(s) for micro components in your project.
