MEMS Spring Eternal

MEMS Innovation and the Global MEMS Design Contest

What do electrostatic transduction, non-linear MEMS sensors, caffeine dosing strategies, and a glowing Death Star have in common? This here podcast! First up, we explore the Global MEMS Design Contest with Christine Dufour (Coventor – A LAM Research Company). Christine and I discuss the details of the winning designs and how design contests foster innovation in the electronic engineering ecosystem. Also this week, we check out an algorithm developed by the United States Army that aims to “optimize an ideal caffeine dosage strategy” and take a closer look at the “The World’s Most Accurate Death Star Replica Firepit”.
