MEMS Industry Group Hosts 10th Annual MEMS Executive Congress US; Tech Business Leaders Explore MEMS and Sensors in Consumer, Environmental, Healthcare/Medical, Industrial Apps
August 28, 2014
MEMS Industry Group (MIG) will host MEMS Executive Congress(R) US 2014, the annual business conference and networking event for the MEMS and sensors industry, November 5-7, 2014 in Scottsdale, AZ. Spanning environmental sensors for safe drinking water to personalized healthcare, cybersecurity for connected systems, and spectral imaging in wearable devices, micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and sensors enable human-machine interactions in unprecedented ways. "This year's MEMS Executive Congress US speakers reflect some of the most fascinating uses of MEMS and sensors in commercial applications," said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group. "Ayasdi is tracking disease via smartphone. MoboSens uses a smartphone sensor to monitor nitrate in drinking water. VTT's microspectromers are likely to be used for skin cancer analysis, among many other uses. GE is advancing MRI. Wurldtech's technology protects critical infrastructure for oil and gas, smart grid and medical devices. And those are just a few of our speakers who will enlighten the C-level audience about maximizing the potential of MEMS and sensors -- the theme of this year's MEMS Executive Congress. Equally exciting, Congress attendees will also hear from entrepreneurs, academic innovators and one of the world's largest foundries, TSMC."

Intel Announces New Packaging and Test Technologies for Foundry Customers
August 28, 2014
Intel Corporation today announced two new technologies for Intel Custom Foundry customers that need cost-effective advanced packaging and test technologies. Embedded Multi-die Interconnect Bridge (EMIB), available to 14nm foundry customers, is a breakthrough that enables a lower cost and simpler 2.5D packaging approach for very high density interconnects between heterogeneous dies on a single package. Instead of an expensive silicon interposer with TSV (through silicon via), a small silicon bridge chip is embedded in the package, enabling very high density die-to-die connections only where needed. Standard flip-chip assembly is used for robust power delivery and to connect high-speed signals directly from chip to the package substrate. EMIB eliminates the need for TSVs and specialized interposer silicon that add complexity and cost.
