We live in an increasingly connected world. Every imaginable device will eventually be connected to a cloud-based data system, to sense everything from air quality to livestock fertility, and to provide real time data to users. This trend spans consumer and industrial environments and is spawning countless new applications and infrastructure spending. Sensors are becoming ubiquitous and are the common foundation for each and every one of these new applications. Purpose-designed MEMS sensors hold the key to mass adoption, deployment and ROI for these massive development efforts, applied variously to consumer devices, Internet of Things (IOT) products, or Business-to-Business (B2B) networks.
