MEMS: The technology of tiny devices MEMS stands for microelectromechanical systems, which is the technology of micro-fabricated devices. The main idea behind this technology is to combine basic mechanical parts and tools – like cantilevers and membranes – with silicon technology of the type found in computer processors. The result is a microfabricated electronic chipRead more about What’s the difference between MEMS and IMUs?[…]
