See the MEMS tech showcase at SEMICON West

June 29, 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, consumer products from Freescale Semiconductor, an automotive demo from Meggitt (Endevco), a gas chromatograph and given imaging pill from MEMSCAP, a MEMS scanning mirror in a pico-projector from Touch Microsystem Technology, and an IR Thermal sensor from OMRON. Additional products including a wafer from Okmetic will give examples of MEMS along the supply chain.

MIG is also exhibiting on the show floor in conjunction with numerous MIG member companies.

A special hands-on demonstration of some of these displays will take place with between on July 12 at 12:45pm and 2:00pm after "The Future of MEMS: Solutions for Moving from a Niche to a Mainstream Business" (which takes place at 10:30am-12:30pm) during the Extreme Electronics TechXPOT, in the South Hall of SEMICON West. Speakers include Bosch Research, 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.

A second MEMS program, entitled "Heterogeneous Integration with MEMS and Sensors," will be presented at the NorthOne TechXPOT, 2-4:30pm on July 12th. Panelists will cover the eco-system of integrating MEMS and ICs.
