MEMS have quite different process and material requirements compared to mainstream microprocessor and memory types of devices. This webcast will explore the latest trends in MEMS devices – including sensor fusion and the important role that MEMS will play in the Internet of Things (IoT). Marcellino Gemelli, Head of Business Development at Bosch Sensortec will discuss how smart systems are enabled through sensor fusion. Karen Lightman, Executive Director of MEMS Industry Group (MIG), will provide a “debrief” from the recent MEMS Technical Congress and a preview of a SEMICON West workshop focused on back-end challenges.

    First time trying to participate. I don’t get the audio. And the page seems also stuck.

      Thanks for being in touch. I am so sorry that this has been your experience with our webcast today. I’ll email you shortly to get more information to send to our webcast provider tech support regarding these problems. An archived version will be available as well, and the technical issues should not have affected the quality of the archive. I hope that you will give the archive a try, once it is available.

      Again, my sincere apologies.

      Kind regards,
