A supplier of MEMS devices for portable and consumer applications, STMicroelectronics will display its new enhancements in micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS) for healthcare, consumer and mobile, and automotive applications from August 24 to 26 at MICROTech World 2011 in Korea.
The MEMS sensors of ST have enabled motion-initiated user interfaces in numerous well-known consumer devices that include remotes, digital still cameras, game consoles, personal media players, tablets, and smart phones. The company’s acceleration sensors are broadly used by computer makers for securing hard-disk drives of laptops. Car accessory manufacturers utilized ST's MEMS in developing and improving navigation systems, and airbags.
The visitors of MICROTech World 2011 can view the demonstrations of ST’s advanced MEMS technology in three important application areas including automotive, smart mobile devices, and healthcare. The fourth international MEMS/Microtech Conference will also concurrently take place at Korea International Exhibition Center (KINTEX) on August 24, 2011.
ST will display its new automotive MEMS used in g-Brake Lights developed on the basis of ST's AIS326DQ inertial sensor. These brake lamps serve as an extra warning light by offering an optical indication of the deceleration sensed by the accelerometer AIS326DQ while applying brakes, thereby ensuring safety of the vehicle driver.
ST will showcase a broad range of applications for tablets and smart phones. These are possible by combining ST's improved MEMS sensors such as integrated modules, accelerometers, and gyroscopes that utilize various demo-tools including the iNEMO measuring board, which provides about 9-axis MEMS sensing of magnetic, angular, linear motion in addition to temperature and pressure sensing, controlled by an STM32 32-bit microcontroller. ST will display MEMS pressure-sensor technology-based smart contact lens that monitors and observes changes occurring in eye pressure within the 24-hour time range.
