Silicon Stagnation

How Emerging Technologies and Non-Traditional Materials Are Changing the Future of MEMS

In this week’s episode of Fish Fry, MEMS and sensors visionary Alissa Fitzgerald and I chat about emerging technologies in the MEMS and sensors ecosystem. We investigate how research and development is changing the MEMS landscape and why Alissa thinks that silicon sensor technology could be at risk of stagnation due to waning research efforts. Also this week, we check out the details of a new “sweaty” humanoid robot named Kengoro and the future of silicon carbide transistor technology.
