MEMS sensors have already become an integral part of state-of-the art smartphones and media tablets. Now, with the rise of wearable devices the role of MEMS sensors will become even more important, not only by adding essential power-saving functions but also by enabling new, advanced use cases. On the other side, the demanding specifics of wearable devices will continuously drive the requirements for existing and future MEMS sensor technologies.
