Michael Judy received a B.S. degree from MIT in 1987 and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1994. In his doctoral research, he was the first to demonstrate polysilicon sidewall beams as structural elements in microresonators and microactuators. In 1993 he joined Analog Devices where he has participated in all aspects of MEMS processing, design and manufacturing. In 2003 he was promoted to an ADI Fellow. Currently, he is the MEMS Advanced Development Director for the MEMS & Sensors Group. He and his group have developed many different MEMS devices including accelerometers, gyros, optical switches, microphones, pressure sensors and microresonators. He has over 20 U.S. patents pending or awarded.
