SYMPOSIUM 1: Exploring the MEMS Ecosystem to Build a Smarter Tomorrow

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Smart solutions enabled by micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) sensor technologies are having a profound impact across global markets. From consumer to industrial, automotive to medical applications, human-machine interactions are being enhanced in extraordinary ways. This symposium connects topics within the MEMS ecosystem and reveal developments driving new opportunity across the supply chain. Experts in device design, technology development and systems integration bring their insights for commercializing MEMS enabled sensing systems. The closing panel highlights the topic of Piezo MEMS and Audio Applications. As the MEMS ecosystem grows, there is opportunity for innovation at each new intersection. This symposium is a must attend event for MEMS integration engineers.
Organized and moderated by Valerie Marty from Connected Micro LLC.
