You know that our digital world requires devices like computer chips that have to be carefully made. And you probably know the big names, like Intel, that make such things.

But when a company needs to make devices with electronics that do not exist, and in small batches, they turn to a MEMS (microelectromechanical systems) foundry. And that is the business of Rogue Valley Microdevices.

This month The Ground Floor, our segment on entrepreneurs, welcomes Jessica Gomez, the CEO of the company since she founded it in 2003. Thin films? Wafer services? Clean rooms? We get a crash course in this visit with Jessica Gomez.
