NewsFlash: Bosch surpasses 3 Billion sensors Sold!
You may or may not know that Bosch not only produces spark plugs but also fabricates hundreds of different MEMS sensors and actuators. They invented to "Bosch Process" which allows MEMS fabricators to create extemely high aspect ratio structures in silicon. Many of their MEMS sensor systems can be found in automobiles. Most new cars comming out on the market have over 50 MEMS devices imbedded in them!
"Bosch supplies sensors for a wide range of applications in the consumer electronics and automotive industries. These sensors measure pressure, acceleration, rotary motion, mass flow, and the earth's magnetic field. Bosch has been at the forefront of MEMS technology since it first emerged, and today it generates more sales in the extremely dynamic MEMS sensor market than any other supplier. "
Therapeutic MEMS Overview Learning Module
This Category includes the Therapeutic MEMS Overview Learning Module (Instructor guide, Participant guide and PowerPoint presentation).
This is a short presentation that focuses on the retinal prostheses that uses an array of micro-sized electrodes that is placed on a patient's retina to pick up rays of light sent from a camera on the eyeglasses of the patient.
A narrated presentation is available on YouTube. Click the link below.
