WHO:
MIPI® Alliance, an international organization that develops interface specifications for mobile and mobile-influenced industries, announces that Satwant Singh of Lattice Semiconductor will speak on behalf of MIPI during a one-day pre-conference symposium discussion titled, “MEMS Sensor Fusion Panel: A Dive into Standardization.”  The panel is organized and hosted by the MEMS Industry Group (MIG), the trade association focused on growing the global MEMS market.  Other panelists include: Karen Lightman, executive director, MEMS Industry Group, David DiPaola, DiPaola Consulting; Ken Foust, Intel; and Becky Oh, PNI Sensor.

WHAT:
The pre-conference symposium will discuss how sensor fusion—the intelligent combination of data from several sensors for the purpose of improving application or system performance—has the MEMS industry abuzz with promise. With benefits that include the ability to meet or exceed power, performance, and cost requirements in heterogeneous embedded systems, including mobile handsets and tablets, sensor fusion is moving rapidly into the commercialization phase.  

Get a rare deep-dive into the MEMS industry’s unique perspective on what sensor fusion is, how it applies to different markets and applications and the challenges and opportunities to success both today and into the future.  

WHEN:

June 4, 2013, 3:45 p.m.  – 4:30 p.m.

WHERE:

Pre-conference symposium at Sensors Expo & Conference
Donald E. Stephen Convention Center, Rosemont, IL

WHY:  

MEMS technology has dominated the automotive industry for decades, and is the special sauce that helped lead to the success of Nintendo Wii and Apple iPhone. More recently, advanced incarnations of these traditional stalwarts, coupled with the arrival of combo sensors, sensor fusion techniques and emerging MEMS devices, have the industry primed to grow from an estimated $10B in 2012, to $20B by 2017.
