Advance CMOS technology to unleash the full power of MEMS sensor

This talk focuses on the cutting-edge developments in CMOS technology that are revolutionizing the capabilities of MEMS sensors. By exploring the synergies between CMOS technology and MEMS sensors, this talk sheds light on the transformative potential of neuromorphic and sensor fusion in pushing the boundaries of sensor technology. Through the implementation of edge AI methodologies, we will also show you the improvement in the following aspects:

  • AI in sensor: neuromorphic and sensor fusion have been proven as an effective approach to improve the sensor performance while achieving the low power consumption requirement for wearable products. We will showcase our latest result with AI integrated sensors.
  • Privacy for always-on sensor: with the increasing need of 24/7 health monitoring, RF radar has been proposed by industry partners to replace optical and acoustic sensors. During this talk, we will give a performance and cost comparation from the foundry’s point of view.
  • Challenge in biosensor: with the increasing computing functions integrated into biosensor, many devices are moving from legacy node to advanced CMOS technology. Major challenges to combine advanced CMOS with microfluidics emerged. In this talk, we will proposal a call for action to resolve this issue.
  • Internet of Medical Things: with the rise in digital therapeutics and at-home diagnostics, we see the need to improve foundry quality control to address such mid-risk medical devices with function safety and root-of-trust approach.
