Overview:

MEMS are finding new usages in healthcare, automotive, gaming and a new wave of consumer applications like wearable technology. Design requirements for these applications include ultra-low power consumption, high sensitivity, reliable performance and often a small form factor. Through the webinar, you will learn how MEMS can be optimized to meet these design requirements. Products and solutions by ST Microelectronics and Arrow Electronics that make evaluation and design easier are also discussed.

Design engineers, software engineers and system architects will learn:

  • Fundamentals of MEMS sensors – accelerometers, gyroscopes, and magnetometers
  • Design techniques for optimizing sensor performance and power consumption
  • Tools and solutions for easy evaluation of stand-alone sensors and integrated sensor modules
