The market for MEMS sensors is becoming more robust with demands coming from automotive, industrial, mobile and scientific markets. By Uploaded by Michael Schmid (Cropped image from ) [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons.
Since 2010, there has been growth beyond expectations in the adoption of mobile devices, e.g. smart phones and tablets, which has called for larger volumes of CMOS image sensor chips to be produced. The resolution and miniaturization races are ongoing, and the performance metrics are also becoming more stringent. Roland Thewes of TU Berlin, Germany shares on the 2013 trends in imagers, MEMS, medical applications and displays. Read more.
