Opening Keynote: Dr Andrea Onetti, VP & GM MEMS Sensors – STMicroelectronics | Topic: Accuracy Enables MEMS Sensor Pervasion
The demand for silicon-based sensors continues to grow rapidly across a wide range of applications. In cars, they are key for navigation and safety in autonomous cars. In industrial applications, they are used for monitoring and tracking of a wide variety of assets. And in personal electronics, they enable great user experiences.
For all these application sensor accuracy is key – improved accuracy means higher quality data, and higher quality data means better decisions with less need for data processing. This talk will discuss how the trend toward increasing accuracy requirements for sensors can be supported through calibration routines which qualify the individual components to meet the needs of different applications. It will discuss how the continuous evolution of MEMS technology offers the possibility for breakthrough reductions in time and cost of these calibration routines, making them much more affordable compared with similar sensors components, made with non-MEMS technologies.
