MIG News & Updates
Fyra paneldiskussioner på samma dag var facit när mikromekanikkonferensen MEMS Congress Europe hölls för andra gången. Av dessa stack energidebatten ut med energiskördning i blickfånget. Här dominerade visionerna och frågorna över svaren och resultaten – kanske just för att det ännu inte finns några företag som tjänar grova pengar inom detta gebit.
Am 12. Marz 2013 fand in Amsterdam der MEMS Executive Congress Europe statt. Der Kongress beschaftigte sich mit Trends, aktullen Entwicklungen und Herausforderungen im MEMS-Bereich rund um die Themen Automotive, Energie, Medizintechnik und Verbraucher-Applikationen.
This second part of a three-part series will visit radio frequency (RF) MEMS, an innovative and disruptive application called tunable antennae, and take a closer look at a start up who is pioneering this technology.
A great article by Peter Clarke on the Historic announcement regarding MEMS Performance Standards!
¡Viva la MEMS Revolución! Please, take a moment to read a guest blog post from Karen Lightman's friend and colleague, Howard Wisniowski. This is the first of three entries where Howard will spotlight three MEMS startups that are breaking new ground in the mobile/consumer market. In this first part, we will learn about bulk acoustic wave (BAW) solid state MEMS gyroscopes and meet MIG member company Qualtré.

Suppliers and OEMs to explore MEMS’ connection to emerging apps in biomedical/quality of life, consumer, robotics, smart energy, and more at annual executive conference
John Blyler, Editor-in-Chief, Chip Design and Embedded Intel magazines interviews: Karen Lightman, Managing Director, MEMS Industry Group
--MIG member-companies share tools of the trade for making big profits at high volumes
MEMS in the mainstream -- Music to my ears
Karen Lightman, managing director of the MEMS Industry Group and Maarten de Boer, a mechanical engineering professor at CMU, recap M2M Forum and discuss the Pittsburgh region's global MEMS leadership.
Karen Lightman, managing director of the MEMS Industry Group, said: "It's wrong to say MEMS hasn't broken through because it's an enabling technology. It might not be the 'bright shiny thing', but MEMS technology is saving lives around the world, playing a central role in air bags, tyre pressure monitoring and blood pressure monitoring. People don't realise where it's being used."
MIG members discuss product development, integration, standardization at M2M Forum
Technology experts have discussed key issues impacting the MEMS industry at Member to Member (M2M) Forum, MEMS Industry Group (MIG)’s annual technical conference for members conducted from May 8 to 10, 2012 in Pittsburgh.
Karen Lightman, MEMS Industry Group (MIG), lets us in on the real meaning of MEMS new product development. MEMS are micro electro mechanical systems.
Beyond smart phones and tablets, what type of device or application do you feel will emerge next to drive the demand for MEMS?
Yole Développement interviewed Karen Lightman upon her return from hosting MEMS Industry Group’s (MIG’s) fi rst MEMS Executive Congress in Europe. We spoke with Karen about growth in MEMS, the ‘state of the state’ of the US MEMS market, and about holding MIG’s fi rst major event in Europe.
