MEMS Industry Group Explores MEMS Supply Chain at 2014 Sensors Expo & Conference

MIG's Pre-Conference Symposium on June 24 Prepares Integrators and OEMs for Success With MEMS

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- MEMS Industry Group® (MIG), the trade association advancing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) across global markets, today announced its line-up of speakers for "Designing MEMS In - How to Engage the Supply Chain," its pre-conference symposium at 2014 Sensors Expo & Conference. Attendees will learn how to take best advantage of a robust supply chain composed of device manufacturers, foundries, materials and equipment suppliers, software designers, and consultants as they prepare for success in this rich and diverse ecosystem.

"There is still great untapped opportunity for entrepreneurism and innovation in how MEMS devices are designed, where they are used, and how they can transform existing applications and create new markets. However, in order to pick the best MEMS device to design into your product, it is important to make the right choices," said Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group. "MIG's pre-conference symposium at Sensors Expo gives embedded systems integrators and OEMs a guided tour of the MEMS supply chain. Attendees will learn how to pick the right platform and partners for their applications, in order to collaborate effectively and achieve the best return on investment."
