Last year MIG launched the MIG Hall of Fame and inducted several outstanding members. Without the contribution of these members, MIG would not be the successful organization it is and continues to be.

 

It's time for this year's nomination process! Please take a few moments and think about who has made a significant and positive impact on MIG over the past 11 years.  MIG will present an award certificate to the top nominees at the opening of M2M Forum 2012, May 8-10, 2012 in Pittsburgh, PA.

 

Which one of your peers deserves this extra recognition?

 

Please send your nominations to Kacey Wherley – , or submit your vote online at https://www.etouches.com/esurvey/MIG by March 30.

SEMI is expanding its popular MEMS program at SEMICON West to a full day this year, and invites abstracts on MEMS manufacturing technology issues and solutions to enable the sector's next level of growth.  The event, presented in cooperation with MIG, typically draws several hundred MEMS manufacturing technologists from around the world, and related investors and press, interested in discussion of technology issues and solutions, with supporting data, enabling the leading edge of commercial production.

Confirmed speakers so far include Yole Developpement's Jean-Christophe Eloy, Maxim Integrated Products' Vijay Ullal, and big new Chinese MEMS maker Hanking Electronics' Doug Sparks, plus other invited industry leaders. But there are also some openings for submitted abstracts. Deadline is March 26. For questions, please contact Paula Doe, pdoe@semi.org. Abstracts can be submitted directly online at  http://semiconwest.org/Participate/SPCFP

Taking MEMS to the next level:  Transitioning to a profitable high volume business


MEMS seems to be at the top of just about everybody’s  hot electronics technology list these days, as demand for MEMS sensors in smart phones soars,  and all kinds of other systems makers see opportunity to make their digital products interact more directly with the real world.   But getting to this projected $20 billion MEMS market in the next few years will mean changes for the traditional specialty niche MEMS business, demanding faster time to high-yielding volume production on the one hand, and closer integration of multiple components into easier-to-use functions on the other.  We’re expanding our popular MEMS program to a full day this year, to take a hard look at these coming market demands, and at the potential solutions to grow MEMS into a major market.
