MIG Hosts Industry Panel May 4, 2011 at ESC Silicon Valley
PITTSBURGH — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 2, 2011 — MEMS Industry Group (MIG), the trade association advancing micro-electromechanical systems ( MEMS) across global markets, will moderate an industry panel on the challenges and benefits of integrating MEMS with DSP and microprocessors.
“Consumers are engaging with portable embedded systems in fundamentally new ways. They experience more realistic game play with Nintendo Wii and Kinect for Xbox 360, pinpoint their location on an iPhone with Google Maps, share visual content via miniature pico projectors, and use ‘air mice’ for remote control of IPTVs,” said Karen Lightman, managing director of MEMS Industry Group. “MEMS technology has played an important role in these applications, which typically rely on microprocessors or DSP for their processing muscle. That’s why understanding how to integrate MEMS into these heterogeneous embedded systems is more critical than ever.”
The panel, “ Integrating MEMS with DSP/Microprocessors: Thoughts from the MEMS Ecosystem,” will take place May 4, 2011, 1:30-2:15 p.m. in the ESC Theater at ESC Silicon Valley, McInery Convention Center, San Jose, CA.
Karen Lightman, managing director of MIG, will moderate the panel. Panelists include:
- Wayne Meyer, Marketing and Applications Manager, MEMS and Sensor Technology Group, Analog Devices;
- Tom Flynn, VP Business Development and Sales, Coventor;
- Eric Pabo, Business Development Manager MEMS, EV Group;
- Michael Housholder, Senior Director of Solution Marketing, InvenSense; and
- Michael Maia, Vice President, Americas Sales and Marketing, Kionix.
