Panel: Successful MEMS Commercialization - Lessons Learned The road to successful MEMS commercialization is a long and windy path with roadblocks and potholes. With careful planning and checkpoints along the way, companies may mitigate risk. This panel will discuss ways to successfully navigate the commercialization process including considerations for planning the development of new products. Has market pull or technology push influenced the killer apps we’ve seen over the past decade? What is next for the MEMS Industry? Representatives from leading MEMS companies will discuss the factors that helped make their products succeed. The panel will also discuss IP considerations and processes to integrate MEMS into new products.
