MEMS in the Onlife era: the promise of smarter devices and improved energy efficiency
MEMS and actuators with intelligent processing are fueling the Onlife Era, where innovative products with smart sensors are able to sense, process, and take actions, bridging the online and offline worlds.
However, with sustainability considerations at the forefront of today’s concerns, increasing the intelligence of devices must not raise power consumption. The fusion of sensors and AI puts electronic decision-making in the application Edge, cutting power consumption by up to 80%.
With the introduction of the Intelligent Sensing Processing Unit (ISPU) and its latest innovations in AR/VR, ST addresses the challenges of creating smarter, more sustainable products.
At ST, we are 48,000 creators and makers of semiconductor technologies mastering the semiconductor supply chain with state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities. An independent device manufacturer, we work with more than 200,000 customers and thousands of partners to design and build products, solutions, and ecosystems that address their challenges and opportunities, and the need to support a more sustainable world. Our technologies enable smarter mobility, more efficient power and energy management, and the wide-scale deployment of the Internet of Things and 5G technology. ST is committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2027. Further information can be found at www.st.com.
