MIG members discuss product development, integration, standardization at M2M Forum

 

MEMS Industry Group® (MIG) engaged technology leaders attending its annual technical conference for members, Member to Member (M2M) Forum, on the most pressing challenges affecting the micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) industry. Held May 8-10, 2012 in Pittsburgh, M2M Forum® began with a tour of Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU’s) microsystems labs, offering a rare opportunity to engage with engineers at one of the world’s top R&D institutions. Through interactive working group sessions, presentations and panels, M2M attendees discussed critical issues influencing new MEMS product development, to advance the commercialization of MEMS through a fertile information exchange.

Karen’s Blog – MEMS Isn’t New

MEMS New Product Development

 

What do you think of when I say the words “MEMS new product development?” Do you envision new categories of newly discovered MEMS hatching somewhere in a university lab? If your answer is “yes,”, perhaps you should rethink that– because MEMS isn’t new.  If we are to grow this $9 billion/year industry to a hundred-billion or even trillion dollar industry as some predict, we need to think of new MEMS in terms of how the “regular, everyday” MEMS we have right now are used in development of new end products.  Whether these new MEMS-enabled products come from a combination of market pull and/or technology push, there are challenges and hurdles that the industry must come together to address. NOW.

Here’s a guide for navigating the MEMS events at SEMICON West, July 10-12 at Moscone Center in San Francisco:

 

TUESDAY, July 10, 10:30am-3:30pm

 

Taking MEMS to the Next Level: Transitioning to a Profitable High-Volume Business

Presented in cooperation with MIG


We’ve expanded the MEMS program to all day this year, and invited speakers from around the world to address practical potential solutions to the major manufacturing issues for growing the sector to the next level. Yole Développement’s J.C. Eloy will give his views on the future of the industry and what it will take to get there. Harmeet Bhugra will talk about IC maker IDT’s entry into the MEMS timing business. Doug Sparks from the new Chinese MEMS IDM Hanking Electronics talks about the opportunities in the China market.  Foundry executives Donald Robert from Teledyne Dalsa and Peter Hrudey from Micralyne examine possible collaborative solutions to speed time-to-market.  Hillcrest Labs CTO Charles Gritton talks about issues of software integration and sensor fusion.

MEMS is Mainstream - So What’s Next?
November 7-9, 2012 | Scottsdale, Arizona

MEMS Executive Congress is the preeminent annual conference and networking event for the MEMS industry. It is a unique professional forum at which executives from companies designing and manufacturing MEMS technology sit side-by-side with their end-user customers in panel discussions and networking events to exchange ideas and information about the use of MEMS in commercial applications.

 

MEMS Technology Showcase®

With MEMS Technology Showcase®, MIG promotes MEMS-enabled products through conferences and trade shows: demonstrating the MEMS in the machine. Stay tuned for more info on our Call for Demos, coming this summer!
