Norwood, MA (10/31/2007) - Analog Devices, Inc. (NYSE: ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications, will be a featured participant at the annual MEMS Executive Congress to be held November 4-5 in Del Mar, CA.
Mark Martin, ADI’s vice president and general manager for its Micromachined Products Division, will be featured on a consumer goods panel which takes place Monday, November 5, at 3 PM.
Martin will be joined by other key executives on the panel to provide insights into why MEMS components and devices are being increasingly adopted into consumer electronic products. The panelists will also discuss the challenges and opportunities related to marketing, selling and delivering MEMS products to consumer electronics manufacturers.
As a pioneer in the micro-machine IC industry, ADI simplified inertial sensing by producing the first fully-integrated iMEMS® (integrated Micro Electrical Mechanical System) accelerometers, which sense velocity and acceleration, and gyroscopes, which sense the rate and angle of rotation. ADI’s iMEMS Motion Signal Processing™ innovations have been enhancing consumer experiences for a decade by enabling new motion-based wireless game controllers for truly interactive, lifelike, motion-based video games; as “airbags” for your computer in motion sensitive hard drive protection systems in laptops; in cell phones for pedometer, user interface, and power saving functions; and more accurate measurements in portable blood pressure monitors.
