Industry’s Guide to Technology Transfer and How to Commercialize your MEMS/Sensors Product
Technology transfer can be an imposing bottleneck in the development of any MEMS based product and time to market can be severely impacted if too much time is spent in tech transfer. When trying to get from lab to fab to high yield production, the moral of the story is that you can’t go it alone and that there are resources available to help you. MEMS & Sensors Industry Group, is building in collaboration with its members a Tech Transfer Wiki, which aims to be a “how to” of best practice and a “go to” resource for taking a MEMS device design including designs developed at a commercial fab, university, or start-up, to high-volume manufacturing using an external partner.
This one-hour session will be a “nuts and bolts” discussion of MEMS/sensors technology transfer, featuring industry experts who will share their knowledge on how best to shorten the time to market and speed time to commercialization. The panel discussion will focus on applied technology and the transfer process inside companies from research and development to production. The panelists will present thoughtful and honest advice on what students/academics/researchers need to know when embarking on technology transfer. The discussions will discuss challenges and opportunities and presenters will share best practices based on their experiences.
Hilton Head 2016
The seventeenth in the series of Hilton Head Workshops on the science and technology of solid-state sensors, actuators, and microsystems will be held on June 5-9, 2016. Previous Workshops have provided a highly interactive forum for North, Central and South American researchers to present and discuss recent advances in microfabrication technologies for sensing and actuation devices and microsystems for physical, chemical, and biological applications. This year, we hope to increase the interactive and networking success of this meeting as we are also inviting all previous Hilton Head Workshop attendees to attend as well as submit abstracts and present papers.
- New Devices or Microsystems
- New Sensing and Actuation Concepts
- High Performance Devices (revised line)
- Devices with Substantially Improved Performance
- Device Fabrication and Testing
- Process Design and Modeling
- Device Modeling and Simulation
- Fabrication Technologies
- Materials and Material Processing
- Nanotechnology and Applications
- Testing Including Test Equipment and Methods
- Interface and Calibration Circuits
- Advanced Circuit Techniques
- System Integration and End Use Applications
- Component and Wafer-Level Packaging Technologies
- Assembly Materials and Processes
- Non-Electronic Interfaces to Devices
- Environmental Effects and Compensation Methods
- Reliability Testing and Methods
The Workshop will be held at the Sonesta Resort on Hilton Head Island, SC. It will be a single-session meeting, with ample time allotted for discussion of each paper, and with blocks of unscheduled time to encourage informal interactions among participants. The conference has reserved several oral presentations and contributed poster session slots in the program for LATE NEWS papers. LATE NEWS papers, as submitted, will be accepted for presentation and will be published in the technical digest. LATE NEWS papers will be limited to two pages in length and must follow the submission procedure in the instructions. There will be ten oral sessions and a contributed poster session. Manuscripts of papers presented in these sessions will be included in the Workshop Technical Digest. There will also be an OPEN POSTER session to encourage participants to discuss informally very recent results, work in progress, and results recently presented elsewhere. OPEN POSTERS will not be included in the Technical Digest. Please see LATE NEWS and OPEN POSTERS on this website for further information.
This year, besides being open to all researchers from North, Central and South America, the Workshop is open to past attendees of any previous Hilton Head Workshop with verification. This does not apply to past commercial representatives.
