InvenSense CEO keynotes Semicon Europa MEMS Forum

October 6, 2011 — InvenSense Inc. founder and CEO Steve Nasiri will deliver a keynote "MotionTracking – Driving Hi-Impact Motion-Based Applications in the Digital World" at Semicon Europa‘s International MEMS Forum on October 10, 2011 in Dresden, Germany.

Nasiri will cover the key market drivers for the emerging motion interface market and discuss market needs for an integrated MotionTracking Module offering a true motion interface. He will share the key principals of motion interface technology and define the main benefits for consumer electronics. These include one-to-one motion control, motion gesture commands, device pointing recognition capability, and indoor navigation. Current market challenges with the complexity of integrating multiple discrete motion sensor devices, such as 3-axis accelerometer, 3-axis gyroscope, 3-axis compass and pressure sensors, will be examined. The speech will also touch on algorithm development for sensor fusion.

Steve Nasiri is a 30 year veteran of the MEMS industry. He is the founder of InvenSense and has served as president, CEO and chairman since 2003. Prior to founding InvenSense, Nasiri held various positions as a co-founder and executive of several MEMS companies, including SenSym (acquired by Honeywell), NovaSensor (acquired by General Electric), Integrated Sensor Solutions (acquired by Texas Instruments), and ISS-Nagano GmbH. He also held key management and operations positions at National Semiconductor, Fairchild Semiconductor, and Maxim Integrated Products. Nasiri’s name is on over 50 patents and patent applications, many published papers, and articles on MEMS technology.
