Topic: 
2017 MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress
Wednesday, May 10, 2017 - 8:00am to Thursday, May 11, 2017 - 5:00pm
Venue: 
Bechtel Conference Center, Stanford University
Abstract / Description: 

MEMS & Sensors Industry Group has been hosting its annual technical conference since 2001, and it was our pleasure to co-sponsor the event this year.  The 2017 MEMS & Sensors Technical Congress (MSTC) took a close look at how companies in the MEMS and sensors supply chain can thrive in a challenging environment.  Among the key challenges facing the industry today are:

  • Creating higher integration devices with lower power
  • Cybersecurity/security at the sensor node
  • Energy and power management
  • Ever-expanding Internet of Things (IoT) applications requiring optimized solutions
  • Smaller and flexible form factors (including testing and packaging)
  • Cloud/fog/edge computing
  • A tsunami of data on the near horizon that will require machine learning
  • Migrating from component provider to systems solution provider
