FUTURE TRENDS
FUTURE TRENDSThe future of microsystems includes higher levels of integration, more functionality for each device, and smaller dimensional scales. As the manufacturing capabilities continue to improve and mature, it is expected that it will be possible in the future to easily integrate a multiplicity of different sensor and actuator types on a single slab of silicon as well as the integration of microsystems with state-of-the-art electronics. This will enable enormous amounts of functionality to be squeezed into a very tiny amount of space and with a very low relative cost. Additionally, we are currently seeing the blending of microsystems and nanotechnology and this will only continue to increase into the future.Perhaps the most important future trend is the use of microsyst…
