MEMS and sensors, Artificial Intelligence, and virtual and augmented reality are among the innovations expected to significantly impact our lives in the very near future. Among these, Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors are integral to billions of electronic devices. From the smartphone to the smart living room, MEMS and sensors and other bleeding edge technologies enable us to experience the world around us in fundamentally new ways.

Forecasts by Yole Developpment indicate that the MEMS industry will reach $20B by 2021, and diversity and growth are exploding. Nowhere is that more evident than in Texas, with companies such as Texas Instruments leading the way.

How will these technologies fuel growth in Texas and how can companies along the supply chain benefit? The SEMI Texas Forum provides attendees with information regarding MEMS in an interactive format. Join your colleagues in learning about these technologies and markets.
