The Sensory Revolution is the next big thing in MEMS, according to Peter Himes of Silex Microsystems, which says it is the world's largest pure-play MEMS foundry. "Incremental improvements in processing speed or memory density no longer have significant impact on the devices we use," says Himes, " MIPs and Megabytes are everywhere. And they are free. " "Now we are at the advent of the Sensory Revolution," adds Himes, "in the next 20 years, advances in nanotechnology and micro machining will make devices environmentally aware, allowing people to interact with devices the way they interact with each other: by touch, sound, movement, balance, and flow." All this will be driven by MEMS, says Himes. In 2011, MEMS device shipments topped $10 billion US worldwide comprised of over 5 billion units, 95% of which were in consumer, automotive and medical/healthcare product areas. The...
