MEMS, or microelectromechanical systems, will be a key technology featured in the educational sessions and throughout the Expo Hall during the 2011 Sensors Expo and Conference taking place June 6-8 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. Sensor Expo and Conference 2011For more than 25 years, Sensors Expo has been bringing engineers and engineering professionals the latest trends and cutting edge technologies in sensors, show organizers said, and this year will be no different, with rapidly changing technologies such as MEMS, wireless and energy harvesting. MEMS technologies integrated into sensors can offer higher accuracies and require less or no recalibration over time, compared to other sensing technologies. MEMS also can drive tiny actuators, such as valves, positioning systems, and motors.

“Attendees come to Sensors Expo to see the latest sensing technologies, and MEMS is one of hottest segments in sensors today,” said Beth Torrey, Event Director for Sensors Expo and Conference. “We have partnered with MEMS Industry Group and will be offering a variety of in-depth conference sessions as well as a showcase of MEMS solutions and education on the Expo Floor.”

”We are thrilled to partner with Sensors Expo to educate attendees on advancements in MEMS commercialization and fabrication and supporting MEMS infrastructure,” said Karen Lightman, Managing Director, MEMS Industry Group, the leading industry association focused on advancing MEMS across global markets. “We have put together a compelling three-day line-up of MEMS focused sessions featuring industry experts who will share insights and information on the ways in which MEMS is enabling an ever-growing range of consumer, automotive, biomedical/healthcare and clean energy applications.”

Beginning Monday, June 6, MEMS Industry Group (MIG) will host an all day Pre-Conference Symposium on MEMS Commercialization. Lightman will moderate “MEMS Commercialization Opportunities for Systems and Products.” Featuring speakers from companies such as Acuity, AM Fitzgerald Associates, Analog Devices, GE Sensing and Maxim Integrated Products, this full-day symposium will showcase a dozen industry leaders sharing in-depth information with system-level customers. Speakers will explore a mature MEMS supply chain capable of delivering system-level components without the cost, development time or performance risks of the past.

As part of the general conference program on Tuesday, June 7 and Wednesday, June 8, industry experts will lead discussions on miniaturization, node fabrication techniques, nano-micro integration, the intelligent sensor platform, and stealth dicing in the MEMS Track, organized by MEMS Industry Group. Sessions will include:

  • Micro and Nano Technologies for Smart Systems Integration
  • High-Performance MEMS in a Sensing World
  • MEMS Sensors Integration into Mobile Operating Systems
  • Providing the Infrastructure for Connecting to the World: One Sensor at a Time
  • Intelligent Sensor Platform: Benefits and Challenges for Sensor Networks Applications
  • Microfabrication of High Performance Inertial Sensor Using WLP Technology
  • Development of a MEMS-enabled Human Hydration Sensor
  • Dicing of Sensitive MEMS Devices: Challenges and Solutions
  • Co-Design Strategies for Multi-Sensor Systems

In addition to the robust conference programming dedicated to MEMS, Sensors Expo will also showcase new MEMS products, services, preview future MEMS developments.
