Tips for Navigating the European MEMS and Sensors/Imaging and Sensors Summits

Tips for Navigating the European MEMS and Sensors/Imaging and Sensors Summits

For the second consecutive year, SEMI Europe is co-locating its MEMS and Sensors/Imaging and Sensors Summits in Grenoble, France, in the heart of the Rhone-Alpes. Rather than Minatec Campus, where the event was held last year, both summits will take place at The World Trade Center Grenoble. After last year’s successful and information-packed event, I’m looking forward to attending this year’... »

FLEX2018 Shows how 3D Printed Electronics Will Impact Our Lives

FLEX2018 Shows how 3D Printed Electronics Will Impact Our Lives

If you drive a late model car, you may be impressed by the many sensors that capture engine conditions, tire pressure, etc. and report to you. Many cars even call the factory if they need preventive maintenance. Wouldn’t it be great if we could one day show the same preventive tender loving care (TLC) to our own bodies, as our cars enjoy today – instead of experiencing emergency room visits ... »

Dinner Conversation at the MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress (MSEC17)

Dinner Conversation at the MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress (MSEC17)

One of the things I like best about the annual MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress (MSEC17) hosted by SEMI-MSIG, is being in the presence of some of the greatest minds in the industry. While the presentations are always top-notch, it’s the stimulating dinner conversations they inspire that I look forward to most. This year, I decided to leave the straightforward reporting to my journalist collea... »

High Tech, AgTech, Steinbeck:   A Distinctive Note of Silicon in the Salinas Valley Terroir

High Tech, AgTech, Steinbeck: A Distinctive Note of Silicon in the Salinas Valley Terroir

Keizai Silicon Valley, the organization here promoting network-building as a means of achieving successful US-Japan business relations, put on one of the most interesting programs this past week that I’ve attended year-to-date; a Keizai Silicon Valley panel discussion focused on “Trends in AgTech: Real Needs in the Industry.” Without looking, how far do you estimate it is from Silicon Val... »

2016 Illuminated:  Same Bulb, Different Shades?

2016 Illuminated: Same Bulb, Different Shades?

Collected impressions of 2016 to date: the unfortunate passing of too, too many favorite musicians; the hard-to-escape-from strident bellicosity of our national political campaigns; a winter of welcome, abundant, Northern California rains; along with a plethora of riches in the Silicon Valley conference, symposium, and seminar vein. Take the January 2016 Johnson School Dinner at the Rosewood Hotel... »

Perspective 2016: A Word On Things, From Before There Was An Internet

Perspective 2016: A Word On Things, From Before There Was An Internet

You can’t have the perpetual motion machine I received for Christmas this year, at least until I patent it. And the candy’s mostly gone. But there is something I would like to share with you, readers, and that something is beginning-of-the-year thoughts about connected things. It is a heavy responsibility indeed to carry the load of being the ‘It” item at the Consumer Electronics Show, bec... »

The MEMS Supply Chain: Through the Looking Glass at IDTechEx 2015

The MEMS Supply Chain: Through the Looking Glass at IDTechEx 2015

What is the MEMS supply chain as we know it going to do, device makers and equipment suppliers both, if paper becomes the next MEMS/sensor substrate? And why are we interested? Dr. Alissa M. Fitzgerald, A.M. Fitzgerald & Associates, gave what was probably the single most talked-about presentation at the recent MEMS Executive Congress in Napa, CA. In “Emerging MEMS & Sensor Technologies t... »

Hey Data Guys, Show Us the Money!

Hey Data Guys, Show Us the Money!

I spent last week attending two separate events: the opening of the Center for Heterogeneous Integration and Performance Scaling (CHIPS) at UCLA, and The MEMS Executive Congress, in Napa. I came away from both events with some interesting takeaways on new technology developments, which I plan to dive into and share in the coming week. But more importantly than that, I came away with some perceptio... »
