This is a great achievement. Integrating MEMs on CMOS chips will speed the proliferation and reduce the cost. I wonder how many additional layers/steps are required to do this. When EEPROM was integrated on the microcontroller chips, the problem is that the entire chip is now processed at the higher cost for the additional process steps. It can still be lower system cost, but customers expect the chip to be much lower price.

Baolab has started working on a no mans' land, this is really a remarkable achievement, it will surely going to create ease in the interfacing the MEMS and that will also tend to increase the use of MEMS in electronic devices.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
