MEMS Are Going Mainstream In Large Part Due To Demand And 3D Printing Capabilities
Microelectromechanical systems or MEMS are going mainstream extremely quickly thanks to the advancement in 3D printing and growth of atom-level materials engineering. It is also driven by the need of researchers and enterprises who use it across various applications.
Tech Target described it as a “miniature machine that has both mechanical and electronic components.” Typically, MEMS are fabricated using the same methods used to make integrated circuits.
While 3D printing has reduced the time and cost of creating a MEM system, packaging and handling is a concern. For effective working, the system must be free of outside interference.
MEMS’ use is widespread. For instance, new vehicles have a minimum of 50 MEMS in different safety systems and SOC MEMS are found in smartphones. The latter help with automatic adjustment of the screen orientation. Besides packaging and handling, failure of a MEM system could also be disastrous.
Smart dust is the next step for MEMS. They are basically tiny computers that can work as a wireless sensor network. These tiny machines can help with factory monitoring, granular crop control, and inventory management. It can be used in medicine, physics, and in almost all other sectors.
