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.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
