Market Insights

Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) accelerometers are simplest but one of the most widely accepted micro-electromechanical systems across industrial sector. These systems have become indispensable across automobile, aerospace & defense, consumer electronics and other industries. Since its invention in 1979, MEMS accelerometers have enabled unique features and applications ranging from hard-disk protection on laptops, airbag systems control in automotive to gaming controllers. The prompt adoption of MEMS technology principally credited to miniaturization of existing devices, development of new devices based on principles that do not work at larger scale, development of new tools to interact with the micro-world. MEMS accelerometers developed as a replacement for traditional airbag triggering sensor, also used in digital cameras to enable stabilization or even in simulating game controllers as well as integrated in the latest headphones and others. Another advantage that MEMS relates with the system integration. Instead of having a series of external components connected by wire or soldered to a printed circuit board, the MEMS accelerometers on silicon can be integrated directly with the electronics.
