Visit the “MEMS in the Machine” DemoZone at SEMICON West

MIG members will be featured at SEMICON West, July 12-14, 2011

MEMS Industry Group (MIG) will present the inaugural display of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and MEMS-enabled products entitled “MEMS in the Machine” DemoZone at the Extreme Electronics Stage, South Hall at SEMICON West.

SEMICON West, hosted by SEMI, will take place July 12-14 in San Francisco.

MIG member companies throughout the MEMS supply chain will be featured in the MEMS DemoZone display, showcasing the diversity, enabling capabilities and the nuances of MEMS technology.

Featured products include a consumer product teardown  from Chipworks, Amazon – Kindle DX, FitBit, Sertec Sistemas – Low Power tracking device, Gauss Industria – MAP Sensor, and Chumby One based walking Robot from Freescale Semiconductor, a pressure sensor for aircraft flight testing and an accelerometer for automotive safety testing from Meggitt (Endevco), a gas chromatograph from MEMSCAP, a MEMS Thermal IR sensor from OMRON, and a MEMS scanning mirror in a pico-projector from Touch Microsystem Technology (Walsin Lihwa Corporation). Additional products including a MEMS wafer from Okmetic will give examples of MEMS along the supply chain.

MIG is also exhibiting in South Hall, booth 2734. Co-exhibitors include: Amerimade Technology, Akrion Systems, Brewer Science, IMT, MEMSCAP, and XACTIX.

A special hands-on demonstration of some of these displays will take place with between on July 12 at 12:45pm after “The Future of MEMS: Solutions for Moving from a Niche to a Mainstream Business” (which takes place at 10:30 am-12:30 pm) during the Extreme Electronics TechXPOT, in the South Hall of SEMICON West. Speakers include Bosch RTC, Teledyne DALSA Semiconductor, GlobalFoundries, imec, Sand9, and Yole Développement discussing how to bring MEMS into the mainstream and stable production no matter what the volume. MIG managing director, Karen Lightman, will moderate the session.
