MEMS the Word

Did you know that there are now more connected devices than people in the world? One of the biggest motivating factors pushing innovative development in these connected devices is MEMS. This week we’re checking out all the nerdy goodness that the 2012 MEMS Executive Congress has to offer. I chat with a couple of the winners of the MEMS Technology Showcase about how their new products are launching an era of “MEMS Inside the Machine”. I also talk with Benedetto Vigna (STMicroelectronics) about the trends in MEMS-enabled designs, where STMicroelectronics fits into the MEMS ecosystem, and where in the world you’ll find the best skiing. 

Also this week, I review “Stuff You May Have Missed” (MEMS Executive Congress Edition) and give everyone another chance to win an LX9 Spartan-6 MicroBoard courtesy of Xilinx.
