Aug. 28, 2002 — Revenues for wireless MEMS are expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 37.2 percent to $850 million by 2006, according to a new report from In-Stat/MDR.
The sector, which includes radio-frequency (RF) components and wireless sensors, will see the strongest growth in areas such as mobile electronics, automotive, and industrial processing and monitoring equipment.
For RF MEMS, such as switches and filters, firms have overcome packaging hurdles but have not achieved high-volume production. On the wireless sensor side, growth has been limited by a lack of standardization, but industry players are resolving the issue, the report said.
The report, “Wireless MEMS: Unleashing the Power of ‘Small,'” costs $3,295.
