Media Release: iSLI and IMAPS-UK reschedule technical MEMS workshop

TECHNOLOGY transfer institute, iSLI, and IMAPS-UK have announced a rescheduled date to host the technical seminar, ‘Making MEMS Work – BIG Ideas For Small Devices’, which will see a keynote presentation from Yole Développement.

Yole Devéloppement has been announced as the keynote ‘Making MEMS Work’ presenter at the IMAPS-Uk technical seminar, which will now be held on 27th January 2011 at the Institute for System Level Integration (iSLI), Edinburgh.

At the seminar, leading companies and institutions – including BAE Systems, Unisem, Teradyne, Optocap, Semefab, iSLI, Heriot-Watt University and Selex Galileo – will investigate the MEMS product development chain from research, design and development through to packaging and test.

UK Microelectronics Packaging Society (IMAPS-UK) is holding an one-day technical seminar and industry networking event in conjunction with the Institute for System Level Integration (iSLI) and the event will provide the opportunity for:

* Updates on the latest MEMS developments and technologies

* Networking between end-users, supply chains and technology providers

* Business development opportunities for your company and its products

So how do we make MEMS work? This IMAPS-UK Technical Seminar will investigate the MEMS product development chain from design and development through to packaging and test, exploring techniques which help to address these challenges.

Presentations includes:

* Heriot-Watt University – SMART MICROSYSTEMS: a flagship project from the IeMRC

* BAE Systems – Producing MEMS devices for niche applications in modest volumes

* Optocap – Packaging of MEMS

* Teradyne – Testing of MEMS devices

* Semefab – Requirements for MEMS Manufacture

* iSLI – MEMS and wireless sensor networks for condition monitoring applications

* Unisem – MEMS manufacturing in the UK achieving excellence

* Selex Galileo – Taking MEMS to new markets

Who Should Attend:

End users, research and development engineers, scientists, production and manufacturing engineers, supply chain companies, process engineers, product designers and students.

Table Top Exhibition:

In addition, there is a complementary tabletop exhibition showcasing leading companies in the field (some spaces may now be available due to rescheduled date).

Registration and seminar fees:

The event is open to all including non IMAPS-UK members but space for the event is strictly limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Location: iSLI (Institute for System Level Integration), Edinburgh EH14 4AP
