Applied Microengineering Ltd - AML is an Independent, Industrial Commercial organization, dedicated to Microengineering. Microengineering, sometimes referred to as Micromachining, Microsystems (MST), MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) is defined by AML as a technology using Silicon wafers, as the unit of production and base material, processed by a variety of microelectronic (and other) wafer, batch, techniques to produce identical millimeter sized devices with micron sized features, accurately and at low cost. AML's mission is to help Industry exploit Microengineering. This is achieved via the design, development, productionisation and manufacture of microengineered products (currently mainly sensors) on behalf of industry.
