--MIG speakers will explore technology transfer, emerging MEMS/sensors, manufacturing infrastructure and process technology, June 23 in Anchorage


PITTSBURGH -- (June 2, 2015) -- MEMS Industry Group® (MIG), the trade association advancing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors across global markets, will hold its first concurrent conference session at Transducers 2015 on June 23, 2015.

“Transducers is recognized throughout the MEMS and sensors industry as ‘the’ place to gain exposure to the emerging stars of the R&D community,” said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group. “By offering a full-day conference session at Transducers 2015, MEMS Industry Group aims to bridge the gap between those R&D luminaries and the commercial MEMS and sensors industry in ways that will benefit equally both groups. R&D talent will gain exposure to the field-proven performance and best practices that the commercial MEMS/sensors industry demands, and leading MEMS/sensors industry players will gain insight into advancements being made in the world of R&D.”

“I am thrilled to bring MIG speakers to a conference that offers countless opportunities for the enrichment of everyone involved,” added Ms. Lightman.

MIG speakers will discuss technical and business topics related to the commercialization of MEMS and sensors. They will cover technical topics such as testing strategies, packaging trends, new foundry materials, and emerging application areas such as optical MEMS and image stabilization. They will also address commercial/business issues such as technology transfer, educating customers for maximum success, pros and cons of open-source software, and supply chain navigation.
