MEMS and the Dawn of Computer Vision

The age of computer vision is truly dawning. The technology for remote sensing across the electromagnetic spectrum has matured to the point that it is now practical, and it is almost cost-effective enough to adopt throughout the economy. The ability of machines to see will usher in new waves of innovation and economic growth akin […]

MEMS Sensors and the Automotive Market

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) combine tiny mechanical parts, electrical devices, and electronic circuitry using integrated-circuit (IC) fabrication technologies. The structural features in these systems are quite small (ranging from 1 to 100 microns), with a typical MEMS chip varying from 1 to 5 millimeters. These devices vary from simple spring-and-weight mechanisms to complex systems with multiple […]

Thanks to Microfluidics, the Future of Medical Technology is Tiny

Thanks to Microfluidics, the Future of Medical Technology is Tiny

What do drug discovery and delivery, the fight against COVID-19, and personalized “organs” all have in common? They need to move—and then analyze—tiny amounts of precious sample. While that sounds like a daunting task, dramatic progress in these fields (and many others) is being driven by the power of the small. The very small.
