Micro-electro-mechanical systems, or MEMS, are silicon-based devices that can serve as sensors, actuators, or passive mechanical structures (such as microfluidic channels). MEMS are manufactured on silicon or glass wafers using techniques originally developed by the semiconductor industry for forming micron-scale features. As a result, MEMS are tiny, low cost, and low power compared to traditional electro-mechanical devices made by conventional machining. MEMS can easily be integrated with microprocessors, wireless telemetry and other circuitry, enabling powerful capabilities in packages only millimeters on a side. MEMS devices are already in widespread use in smartphones, automobiles, and consumer electronics. The uses for MEMS devices are limited only by a product designer's imagination. In the near future, MEMS will be at the heart of the Internet of Things. MEMS devices designed and developed by AMFitzgerald are helping to save lives, improve quality and safety of life, and reduce waste and inefficiency in industrial processes.
SoftMEMS was founded in 2004 by Dr. Mary Ann Maher. SoftMEMS products are based on the MEMS Pro software developed by Dr. Maher's team at Tanner Research in 1997 and the MEMS Xplorersoftware developed by Dr. Jean Michel Karam's teams at TIMA and MEMSCAP.
