Aluminum Nitride Technology Platform and its empowered Piezoelectric Micromachined Ultrasonic Transducers (PMUT) for proximity sensing 

Along with the progressive development of Aluminum Nitride (AlN) platform, its technological advantage has been revealed in not only consumer electronics, but also applications covering smart-home and automotive industry. MEMS sensor empowered by AlN technology has gradually replaced the conventional bulk transducer because of its superior performance in terms of lower power consumption, lower cost, miniaturized footprint and etc. In this presentation, I would like to use AlN based PMUT proximity sensor as a showcase to demonstrate the great commercial value of this technology for emerging market opportunities.
