-- MIG holds joint workshop with SEMI, July 15, 2015, San Francisco, CA
PITTSBURGH -- July 6, 2015 -- MEMS Industry Group® (MIG), the trade association advancing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors across global markets, will examine the shared challenges of the MEMS, sensor and semiconductor industries, during a half-day workshop, July 15 at SEMICON West 2015. MIG teams with SEMI, the global industry association serving the nano- and microelectronic manufacturing supply chains, in hosting the workshop -- which culminates in small-group break-out sessions facilitated by industry experts.
“The MEMS, sensor and semiconductor industries have long been connected by a shared infrastructure and supply chain. And while there are significant differences in the manufacturing of MEMS and sensors -- including the use of unconventional materials, wafer bonding, packaging and lack of standard processes -- we face some of the same obstacles in realizing standardization, and in managing manufacturing, integration, packaging and testing, ” said Stephen Whalley, chief strategy officer, MEMS Industry Group. “By exploring commonalities instead of differences, we can leverage lessons learned, standards and best practices in order to grow our respective industries in jointly served markets, including IoT, medical and wearables.”
