IESA - NCR Distinguished Speaker Series
“Sensors: New Opportunity For Silicon"
Bruno Murari
Scientific Adviser, ST Microelectronics


The Indian Semiconductor Association’s NCR Chapter in association with ST Microelectronics is pleased to present Bruno Murari, Scientific Advisor, as a speaker in the IESA-NCR Distinguished Speaker Series. Please mark your calendar for this morning event on Friday, 27th April, 2012.


The talk will describe the process of semiconductor manufacturing – starting from sand, the basic raw material, to silicon wafer realization. The evolution of semiconductor technology, recent trends from the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS), and the need for a “More than Moore’s” law to account for recent advances in semiconductor manufacturing will be discussed. Recent innovations in silicon micro-machining technology for MEMS like accelerometers, gyroscopes, pressure transducers, and microphones, including their growing adoption in everyday automotive and consumer devices will be presented. The presentation will conclude by introducing the visionary Bio-to-Bit technology, an application of semiconductors to the biology/medicine deploying MEMs/bio-sensors to address the healthcare needs of society.
