Chipworks: Inside Analog Devices’ New MEMS Strategy

St. J Dixon-Warren, Manager, Process Analysis, Technical Intelligence, Chipworks Inc. Analog Devices has recently changed their MEMS strategy. Since the introduction of the ADXL50 in 1991, Analog has built their MEMS inertial sensors using their iMEMS technology, which integrated the micromechanical structures and ASIC circuitry on a single die. The development of this technology culminated, […]
