OMRON adds MEMS flow sensors for fuel cell systems with higher L/min capabilities

OMRON released the D6F-70, a 70L/min MEMS flow sensor optimized for measuring the gas flow rate of fuel cell systems. Omron also plans to release in FY2011 a similar MEMS flow sensor capable of measuring up to 200L/min.

MEMS enjoy cell integration, China-based demand

With the iPhone 4 paving the way, global demand for MEMS devices in cell phones will rise robustly during the coming years, helping the total MEMS market to expand in healthy measure at least through 2014, according to IHS iSuppli. Also pushing growth: BRIC countries and new applications, such as healthcare products.

Where is MEMS adoption growing? Tablets, says IHS iSuppli

Apple's iPad and the Android-based tablets, along with other media tablets, make up the fastest growing MEMS sector in the consumer electronics and mobile segments, says IHS iSuppi research. MEMS sales for tablet use is predicted to increase nearly 400% YOY. Cell phones remain the largest sector for MEMS adoption, however.

Helios Crew, SemiLEDs, intros LED packaged with MEMS

Helios Crew Corporation (HCC) Taiwan released its LED product S35, a packaged component LED that integrates MEMS with semiconductor processing to produce a unique silicon packaging technology.

Aerotech nanopositioners provide lab accuracy at fabs

Aerotech ANT95-R and ANT130-R direct-drive rotary stages offer in-position stability of 0.005 arc sec and incremental motion of 0.01 arc sec using the company's direct-drive technology. They suit disk-drive and MEMS manufacture and test, fiber-optic device alignment, as well as laboratory R&D applications.
