MEMS & Sensors Companies Compete for Tech Showcase "Crown"



MILPITAS, Calif., Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- From lifesaving smart headsets for truck drivers to gliding electric skateboards, five companies using MEMS and sensors will compete for audience votes during the Technology Showcase at the SEMI | MSIG MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress on November 1-2 in Napa Valley, Calif. As a featured event at the MEMS & Sensors Industry Group (MSIG) annual professional forum for executives from MEMS/sensors manufacturing and their end-user customers, the Technology Showcase highlights the newest and most unique MEMS/sensors-enabled applications in the industry.

"This year's Technology Showcase finalists at the MEMS & Sensors Executive Congress are as fascinating as they are diverse," said Frank Shemansky, CTO of SEMI | MSIG. "Imagine, for example, a MEMS-based switching element the width of a human hair, enabling RF switching that is 1,000 times faster and lasts 1,000 times longer than traditional mechanical switches. That is the kind of MEMS technology that could dramatically improve wireless applications, and it is just one of our Tech Showcase finalists ? the others are equally compelling. The Tech Showcase is always a big draw at the Executive Congress because it gives attendees the chance to personally interact with the finalists' demos to decide their vote for the winner ? one of whom will be 'crowned' at the close of the conference."
