Next Generation MEMS

Tuesday, July 8, 2014

The growing applications for MEMS sensors and actuators across the expanding range of mobile devices, wearables, and smart objects in the Internet of Things, have increased demand for smaller, smarter, lower power devices—developments that have stimulated a recent surge of innovation in MEMS technologies.  New magnetic and piezoelectric materials, new sensing technology based on changes in resistance or resonant frequency, new gas sensors, new full motion analysis modules, even new approaches like standard modules for ASICs, are making the growing MEMS industry a very dynamic place. That means plenty of new challenges and opportunities for all along the supply chain. Invited industry thought leaders will discuss what to expect next.
