Emerging MEMS & Sensors Technologies to Watch as We Enter a New Decade
This presentation will provide an executive summary of the most noteworthy MEMS and sensor technologies emerging from the research world as we approach 2020. Most of today's blockbuster MEMS products originated from academic research, and we expect that pattern to continue. The criteria for noteworthiness are: offers a solution to a known or anticipated commercial market need, has a path to scalable manufacturing, and is a technology game-changer. Nearly all of the technologies to be presented will need many more years of intensive development and probably more than $100M in investment to reach full commercialization. Nevertheless, they each hold potential to create new waves of activity and opportunity in the MEMS and sensors industry. The talk will conclude with what the audience should pay most attention to in the coming decade and what the industry should consider as a call to action.
