Let's look at the potential application of MEMS technology in consumer electronic products. The three MEMS devices that will see a rapid growth are Si microphones, accelerometers and RF MEMS. Nokia gave an excellent presentation during the MEMS Executive Congress in November 2008 (downloadable for MEMS Industry Group Members).
Just a year later, the list of MEMS devices that are designed for cell phones is growing, including; Pressure sensors and Gyroscopes for location based services (think GPS), Micromirrors for image projection (think Pico-Projector which still has not proven itself), Microdisplays for ultra low power displays and better picture in sunlight (think Mirasol), some devices inside which the consumer will never see such as Variable capacitors, RF Switches, FBAR, BAW and Oscillators. And micro fuel cells for longer battery life.
