The MIG team traveled to Berkeley, California last week to host a workshop on MEMS Product Development Challenges, part of BSAC’s Fall 2012 IAB & Research Review. We were very honored to host a workshop with BSAC for the second year in a row. The presentations from the workshop are available to MIG members in the Resource Library on our web site.
Karen Lightman kicked off the day by presenting an overview of MIG and the current state of the industry including potential areas for collaboration.
Dave Monk, Sensor Product Manager at Freescale presented a case study on MEMS product development evolution and lessons learned.
Angelo Assimakopoulos, Director of New Business Development at Knowles Electronics discussed the history of Knowles and the challenges they faced developing a MEMS microphone.
Next up was Peter Himes, VP of Marketing at Silex Microsystems. He discussed a foundry’s perspective on process standardization vs full customization.
