Microelectromechanical systems — commonly known as MEMS — applications are on the rise. In fact, the MEMS market is currently outpacing overall IC market growth at a rate that is twice as fast and is expected to be a $20B US market as early as 2017. Why the uptick in MEMS use? The consumer (primarily handheld) and automotive markets hold the answer for now, but other market sectors such as medical, for example, are also beginning to incorporate MEMS devices.
