Smartphones open door for consumer MEMS market
Accelerometers, gyroscopes and magnetometers are seeing growing adoption among smartphones, and demand for the MEMS sensors has risen substantially as the smartphone market expands.
Commenting on the next mainstream MEMS components for smartphones and other mass-market applications, Mark Winter, senior director for the Qualcomm Tricorder X Prize and the Nokia Sensing X Challenge, indicated that the longevity of end-market devices will become very important for the design of MEMS sensors. Personalization is another area that should be focused upon as mobile connected devices will be more relevant to individuals and address human needs of the consumer, according to Winter.
