Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) chips, used as sensors and actuators, are riding the wave of exploding touch-screen tablet and smartphone sales. Look for record growth in all MEMS chip segments in 2011 and beyond. R. Colin Johnson @NextGenLog
Consumer and mobile devices are driving micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) chips sales, which will pass the $2 billion mark by 2011, according to IHS iSuppl
Here's what my Smarter Technology story says about MEMS chips: Accelerometers, gyroscopes, oscillators, acoustic-wave filters, digital microphones, digital speakers, and a dozen other microscopic sensors and actuators are micro-miniaturizing the final frontier in consumer electronics. This is driving the sales of once off-beat MEMS applications into the mainstream...
