InvenSense, a company that develops motion tracking solutions for the consumer electronics market, has organized a demonstration of its patented Nasiri Fabrication (NF) platform to help MEMS developers to design and develop prototypes of their MEMS devices.
The NF platform demonstration will be online in the form of a webcast hosted by I-Micronews. The webcast is scheduled to take place on September 19 at 8 AM PDT.
Yole Development, a market research company that powers the portal I-Micronews, estimates a double digit growth for the MEMS market in the next five years. Innovations leading to new MEMS devices will be driving factors of this envisaged growth.
According to Laurent Robin, Activity Leader, Inertial MEMS Devices & Technologies, one company that can lead the way to MEMS innovation is InvenSense. She stated that manufacturing platform of InvenSense facilitates integration to the highest level and conception of advanced devices.
Martin Lim, Cofounder and Senior Director for Advanced Technology at InvenSense, stated that 50% of efforts expended by MEMS device designers is towards fabrication platform design. This limits the ability of MEMS device manufacturers to move quickly to building prototypes and from there to mass manufacture. In order to counter this delay in the product delivery cycle, InvenSense developed the NF platform which eliminates the obstruction posed by the fabrication process and facilitates MEMS device designers to develop their own designs on the NF platform. MEMS device manufactures thus have a direct path to design and manufacture competitive products.
