ME Graduate Seminar "Reconfigurable and Self-Healing MEMS" Co-sponsored by PRISM
September 6 @ 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM - ME 1061, Guest Speaker - Prof Gary Fedder, Carnegie Mellon University
The “More than Moore” trend in the microelectronics industry builds upon a traditional focus on improving mixed analog-digital systems-on-chip. The industry now has an increasing interest in the expansion of “More than Moore” into mixed-physics microsystem integration with CMOS. The growing commercial success of integrated microelectromechanical systems (MEMS), particularly in inertial sensors, is providing an even greater impetus for extending the integration paradigm to other applications. Predictions of large growth cast for CMOS systems with embedded MEMS-enabled sensing and actuation functions cater to evolving applications in mobile communications, sensed infrastructure, and health care. Two specific application areas inspiring research within my group include reconfigurable RF communications and “near-zero invasive” implantable microsystems.
