Sensory Swarms and MEMS roadmaps on docket at MEPTEC MEMS Technology Symposium

May 10, 2012 — MEPTEC will host its 10th Annual MEMS Technology Symposium, May 23, in San Jose, CA. Keynotes cover “sensory swarms” and motion interfaces, and sessions will cover the micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) roadmap; design, manufacturing, and test of MEMS; MEMS architectures and uses, and more.

Professor Krisofer Pister, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at University of California, Berkeley, will deliver the morning keynote, titled, “Sensory Swarms.” In the afternoon, Steve Nasiri, founder, president, CEO and chairman, InvenSense, will present “Motion Interface the Next Large Market Opportunity.”
