The mission of MSIG Core Standards Working Group is to develop a series of technical specifications, industry standards, and best practices for MEMS and sensor devices and platforms. The ultimate aim is to advance the use and expansion of MEMS and sensors worldwide.

In September 2014, MSIG’s first standard was officially recognized by the IEEE Standards Association. Known as IEEE 2700 Standard for Sensor Performance Parameter Definition, the standard is a common framework for sensor performance specification terminology, units, conditions and limits is provided. Specifically, the accelerometer, magnetometer, gyrometer/gyroscope, barometer/pressure sensors, hygrometer/humidity sensors, temperature sensors, ambient light sensors, and proximity sensors are discussed.

If you are interested in this working group, contact Dr. Frank Shemansky, MEMS and Sensors CTO, SEMI

Recent activity:

Work has been focused on the IEEE 2700 Sensor Parameter Definitions (SPD) and the new interconnect standard I3C.
