All these factors combined have led to the rise of MEMs
Device, Equipment and Materials Market.
While this paper is admittedly produced by a company comparing one of its own crystal oscillators to comparable MEMS
devices, the results are worthy of consideration.
Building on the success of its first generation of RF MEMS
SmarTuners, Cavendish will release the 2nd generation of its RF MEMS
products in 2Q of 2017, which will include the industry's first viable RF MEMS
Switch for cellular Smartphone and IOT radio applications.
sensors are fabricated on silicon wafers using equipment and methods derived from large-scale CMOS manufacturing and therefore, have similar advantages over conventional macro-scale sensors including: lower cost, smaller size, lower power requirements, and better performance (all desirable advantages, especially for wearables).
