MEMS First Silicon Success

Some time back, AMFitzgerald and Silex, a MEMS consultancy and foundry, respectively, announced their “RocketMEMS” program in order to take steps to accelerate the notoriously slow MEMS design cycle. At the recent MEMS Executive Congress, they announced the first fruits of this labor.

They had designed three pressure sensors: one for blood pressure/medical, an altimeter, and one for industrial use. Critically, Silex provided design guidance to drive the design. While that might seem obvious, it’s the reverse of … Read More → "MEMS First Silicon Success"

If it’s not too late to change b

If it’s not too late to change back to a Windows 7 machine, I would recommend the fastest laptop which runs that OS … the Apple Macbook Pro!

Seriously, I went BYOD at Space Codesign this year on an older model (not even the 2012 non-Retina, which came in first in a CNET benchmark and still being sold) in a dual boot setup so that I could travel without lugging two computers on longer trips – one my own (the other was a Dell E6410 – built like a tank and weighs nearly as much!).

Really, it may not … Read More → "If it’s not too late to change b"
