Thursday, May 12, 2011 The Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA) and MEMS Industry Group (MIG), the trade association advancing MEMS across global markets, have inked a collaborative memorandum of understanding (MoU) to form an organisational alliance. The alliance aims at bringing people and information together to advance knowledge, helping the industry understand and eliminate barriers that prevent the greater commercial use of MEMS and MEMS-enabled technology. GSA’s newly formed MEMS Working Group, co-chaired by Louis Ross, president, CEO and chairman of Virtus Advanced Sensors and Maarten Willems, CMORE business director at IMEC, will work with MIG on various events and initiatives to address key issues and opportunities.





GSA and MIG will embark on their first collaboration on 12 May 2011 with Perspectives and Progress in the Emerging MEMS Market, a three-hour event held in conjunction with the GSA & IET International Semiconductor Forum which features perspectives from players within the MEMS supply chain, including several MIG members. Speakers will explore the current state of affairs in the MEMS market; efforts by semiconductor companies to develop their MEMS capabilities, specifically in the medical market; IC design for MEMS; and much more.

“With an increasing number of semiconductor players entering the MEMS field as a potential high-value/high-growth market opportunity, it is pivotal that GSA provides a neutral forum for semiconductor companies, their suppliers and end customers to discuss pressing issues within the MEMS supply chain and establish an efficient and integrated ecosystem,” said Jodi Shelton, president of GSA. “With MIG’s strong presence in MEMS and GSA’s global reach, our organisations complement each other well and we're very pleased to officially form an organisational alliance.”

“End-user applications are becoming increasingly complex, commonly requiring the integration of ICs with a broad spectrum of MEMS devices performing dozens of different functions,” said Karen Lightman, managing director of MEMS Industry Group. “As the industry organisation representing the entire MEMS supply chain, MIG and our members frequently address pragmatic approaches to semiconductor-MEMS integration in mainstream applications such as smartphones, video games, automotive systems and biomedical/Quality of Life systems. That’s one reason why we are partnering with GSA on the May 12th MEMS Session.”
