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.
