CEO Message
This version of Newslyne coincides with the announcement of our financial numbers for our 2005-06 fiscal year (ending March 31, 2006). As we said in a recent news release, Micralyne achieved record earnings and profitability this past year.

While we are a private company and have no formal obligation to release our numbers, we believe it is important to do so. Communicating that we are profitable and financially strong is important to our customers. It gives them confidence that we have the strength to be their long-term strategic MEMS development and manufacturing partner.

Tech Brief: Lean Manufacturing at Micralyne
Micralyne is expanding its production capacity including the construction of new Class 10 clean rooms, more inspection and assembly space, and the acquisition of new processing equipment.

When undertaking such an expansion, it presents an opportunity to reexamine our manufacturing infrastructure and implement changes that could improve cost efficiencies, yields and cycle times. In particular, Micralyne is applying the concepts of lean manufacturing to this new space to complement other lean activities being implemented in our current process flows and existing manufacturing space.
