May 8, 2014. Engineers now design systems and products that include MEMS sensors, particularly MEMS gyroscopes, as essential components. These applications range from portable and wearable devices to industrial robots and critical automotive safety systems. Their requirements for lower power, smaller form-factor, environmental tolerance and lower cost are growing. To satisfy these needs, today's design engineers are considering new solutions and new partners who can bridge theory and practice, and connect the lab to the production line. They are looking [...]
