MEMS and Sensors Industry Group (MSIG), a SEMI Strategic Association Partner, has unveiled the five technology showcase finalists for the 14th Annual MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress (MSEC), to be held October 28-30, 2018, at the Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, California. The MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress is the premier event for industry executives to gain insights on emerging MEMS and sensors opportunities and network with partners, customers and competitors. An early bird registration discount is available until October 8.
The technology showcase highlights the latest applications enabled by MEMS and sensors as finalists demonstrate their innovations and vie for attendee votes. The finalists were selected by a committee of industry experts.
Technology Showcase Finalists
N5 sensors’ micro-scale gas sensors on a chip enable low-power, high-reliability microscale gas and chemical sensing technologies in small-footprint devices. The chip promises to broaden the implementation of gas and chemical sensing for industrial detection, first response, smart cities, demand-controlled ventilation, wearables and other consumer electronics.
NXP Semiconductor’s asset tracking technology uses motion sensors, GPS and edge computing for precision tracking of a package’s journey from origin to delivery point. The technology enables logistics companies to quickly pinpoint and resolve transportation issues.
Scorched Ice Inc.’s Smart Skates leverage STMicroelectronics’ inertial measurement unit (IMU) sensors to facilitate real-time diagnostics of a hockey player's skating technique, condition and performance. The device provides actionable insights to players, coaches, trainers and scouts.
SportFitz’s Concussion-Monitoring Device combines real-time measurements of location, position, direction and force of impact as well as big data analytics and embedded protocols to stream data that can help assess potentially concussive brain impacts. The one-inch wearable device is hypoallergenic, waterproof, recyclable, reusable and rechargeable.
