On-line destination for architects, designers, engineers working with embedded sensors (wired and wireless), MEMS, signal conditioning, power conversion, instrumentation and data acquisition technologies
NXP offers the worlds lowest power consumption touch and proximity sensors available on the market. Our capacitive sensors offer industry-leading robustness to EMC, making NXP a worldwide leader in low power capacitive touch sensors.
This device uses MEMS based rate gyro sensors mounted to a gimbaled camera rig to measure the angular rate of the camera's rotation. The gyro signals are amplified to drive DC servo motors coupled to the camera's rotational axes. As a gyro measures the cameras rotation about an axis, the corresponding servo motor applies an opposing torque on the platform to oppose camera rotation.
Using the MEMS accelerometer and the digital micromirror as an example, this DVD explores MEMS technology in a concise, easy to understand, 8.5-minute package. Examples of MEMS are given from all industries, including industrial, automotive, life sciences, and consumer electronics.
NSF funded movie about MEMS manufacturing. MEMS includes Texas Instruments' packaging of DLP technology; Hewlett Packard's fabrication of the thermal inkjet print heads; and Freescale's design of sensors. Silicon Run Productions worked with their advisory committee and MEMS Industry Group (MIG) to include a variety of MEMS devices and their applications.
