Alertgy and Okmetic Oy win Technology Showcase for MEMS and Imaging Sensors Innovation

Attendees voted for winners at SEMI MEMS & Imaging Sensors Summit 2019

SEMI, announced winners of the annual Technology Showcase at the SEMI MEMS & Imaging Sensors Summit. Attendees voted for one winner per category among ten finalists selected by a committee of industry experts.

The Technology Showcase highlighted some of the newest and most unique MEMS and imaging sensors technology enabled applications in the industry. Winners were announced at the event´s gala dinner at Chateau de Sassenage and awarded by Laith Altimime, president of SEMI Europe and Carmelo Sansone, Director of MEMS and Sensors Industry at SEMI.

“The electronics industry embraces innovations such as those presented by Alertgy and Okmetic Oy, our Technology Showcase winners,Laith Altimime, president of SEMI Europe said. “SEMI initiatives such as the Technology Showcase are meant to help the industry and our members speeding innovation through collaboration.”

Alertgy was crowned the winner of the imaging technology for 2019 with Impedance/Dielectric Spectrum Imaging System for Non-Invasive Continuous Glucose Monitor (NICGM) for Diabetics. Alertgy combines proprietary dielectric materials and signal processing/extraction to detect unique chemical signatures related to blood glucose levels – all in a tiny non-invasive platform suitable for integration in smart watches and other wrist-worn wearables. The pitch was presented by John Hubert, VP of Engineering of Alertgy on behalf of Marc Rippen, founder and president, Alertgy.

Okmetic Oy won the popular vote for the 2019 MEMS technology category with Industrial Patterning Platform for Value-added Si Substrate Manufacturing. The Okmetic platform advances the reliability, quality and performance of silicon-based devices. The platform is designed for MEMS, sensor and photonics applications requiring buried cavities, poly-Si filled through-silicon via (TSV) connections, or patterned multi-layer SOI design. The platform was presented by Päivi Sievilä, customer support engineer, Okmetic Oy.

The award and conference, organized by SEMI, are offered each year for companies across a range of sectors from Internet of Things (IoT) and consumer electronics to robotics and biomedical equipment. Winners receive a free exhibition booth for 2020.

The MEMS & Imaging Sensors Summit returns in Grenoble, France next year 23-25 September 2020.
