MEMS & Sensors Industry Group Conference Asia 2016

THE INTERNET OF MEMS AND SENSORS TODAY and the Internet of TSensors Tomorrow


As the commercialization of MEMS and sensors has become ever more present, companies are positioning themselves as both hardware and software providers, whereby they are not just selling chips, but also the algorithms and sensor fusion to simplify system integration, maximize value, and remain competitive. MEMS & Sensors Industry Group presents our annual conference to showcase companies in Asia addressing this holistic approach to value with products and services currently available, or on the cusp of commercialization.

In this two-day conference, September 13-14, while the first day of the annual MSIG Conference Asia will consist of general session presentations offering great examples of how to maximizing value from the MEMS and sensors supply chain. The second day offers a more long-term approach, with a focus on products and solutions that support the use of a trillion sensors (TSensors) by 2020. These presentations encompass products that intent to meet the demand of emerging MEMS and sensors in to meet the impending demand of the Internet of Things/Everything (IoT/E) for connected devices. Additionally, we will be taking our attendees on a site visit tour to Hangzhou Huawei on Monday, September 12.

Attendees of the MEMS & Sensors Industry Group Conference Asia will come away with a complete picture of the current and future value of, challenges to and opportunities with MEMS and Sensors in the Asian market and from companies serving that market. At this conference, you will gain a clear understanding of the MEMS and sensors industry’s unique perspective on the current landscape both near term and longer term with detailed insight into new and emerging applications.
