Commercialization Issues of MEMS/MST/Micromachines: An Updated Industry Report Card Product News 11/13/2002 1 comment Like virtually all other electronic-industry segments, microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) did not escape the economic slowdown of 2002. Roger Grace, President of Roger Grace Associates, presents a "report card" on the MEMS industry, comparing where it is now versus 2001, and explains the reasons certain MEMS parameters received the grades they did.
A Beam Deflecting System For Holographic Storage Fast Data Reading Design How-To 11/5/2002 Post a comment In this article, Renaud Kiefer and associates describe a compact addressing system for memory reading which combines micro-mirrors (or optical MEMS: microelectromechanical systems), acousto-optics, and gratings. MEMS are more convenient for this application than scanners such as galvanometric, oscillatory, or polygon mirrors due to the large mechanical deflection angles and high level of integration achievable with MEMS devices.
As we unveil EE Times’ 2015 Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. Panelists Dan Armbrust (investment firm Silicon Catalyst), Andrew Kau (venture capital firm Walden International), and Stan Boland (successful serial entrepreneur, former CEO of Neul, Icera) join in the live debate.
