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."

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...
