The rise of a substantial MEMS pure play foundry infrastructure will allow fabless and fab-lite companies to participate. In number of projects, the startups still outpace the established companies, though the established companies have the resources to support the development, qual, and market launch process.
I believe MEMS growth is just in its initial stages. We will have many revolutionary MEMS prodcuts available in the maket in coming days. And this will help semiconductor growth to stay in positive territory.
Replay available now: A handful of emerging network technologies are competing to be the preferred wide-area connection for the Internet of Things. All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
