Innovators to Demonstrate Advanced MEMS and Sensor Products and Platforms to Win Audience Votes
GRENOBLE, France – 19 August, 2019 – SEMI Europe today announced finalists for the Technology Showcase for MEMS & Sensors and the Technology Showcase for Imaging Sensors at SEMI MEMS & Imaging Sensors Summit, 25-27 September, 2019 in Grenoble, France. The finalists are innovators of leading-edge MEMS and imaging sensors for applications spanning wireless sensor nodes in harsh environments, secure-by-design Internet of Things (IoT) devices, non-invasive wrist-worn blood glucose monitors, and 3D eye tracking that more naturally captures user attention in consumer devices. Registration is open now.
Selected by a committee of industry experts, Technology Showcase finalists will demonstrate new enabling products and platforms that are advancing MEMS and imaging sensors in biomedical, IoT, transportation, vision systems, and other consumer and industrial markets as they compete for audience votes. The Technology Showcases will take place during concurrent sessions on 26 September. Winners will be announced that evening during the gala dinner.
