Industry Group (MIG), a global industry organization with close to
150 member-companies and partners, today announced a line-up of
suppliers, partners and end-user companies, all participating in MEMS
TechZone, its show-floor experience at the 2013 International CES.
Micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) are pervasive in smartphones,
tablets, game controllers, notebooks, and other popular consumer
electronics. From tiny inertial sensors that 'translate' motion into the
digital realm, miniature microphones that improve voice input and speech
recognition accuracy, and personal health and fitness applications that
support people living healthier, more independent lives, MEMS devices
are embedded by the hundreds of millions in products that we use on a
daily basis. And while consumers are using MEMS in record numbers-they
aren't yet a household term, but MIG is looking to change that.
"MEMS devices have been the 'secret ingredient' in consumer electronics
for far too long," said Karen Lightman, managing director, MEMS Industry
Group. "The 2013 International CES gives us the perfect forum for
demystifying a technology that is integral to the consumer experience.
CES attendees who come to MEMS TechZone can check out some of the
functionality that they appreciate today-and will love and demand from
CE products tomorrow. Body motion-tracking, personal diagnostics,
gesture recognition and even a wearable sensor and smartphone app that
provides feedback on posture and movement are just a few of the demos
that CES attendees can experience in our MEMS TechZone."
Sponsored by Bosch, Bosch Sensortec and Akustica, MEMS TechZone features
MEMS suppliers, industry partners and end-user companies:
MEMS TechZone takes place from January 8-11, 2013 during 2013
International CES exhibition hours, and is located at the Las Vegas
Convention Center (LVCC) South Hall 2, Booth 25321.
MIG will also host a half-day MEMS
conference session and keynote on January 8, 2013 from 9:00
a.m.-12:00 p.m., LVCC, North Hall, Room N264.
