Dubbed MEMSies by the organizers of the event and the awards, the MEMS Industry Group (MIG), there were 10 awards. However, while STMicroelectronics and InvenSense each picked up two awards there were no gongs going the way of Bosch Sensortec, which is credited with being the 2013 market leader by market research firm Yole Developpement.
MIG stated that the winners were selected by way of a month-long open voting process that took place online based on short lists of candidates.
The full list of winners is:
MEMS/Sensors device of the Year – STMicroelectronics for its LSM6DS3 6-axis accelerometer-gyro combination sensor.
MEMS/Sensors Engineer of the Year – Joe Seeger of InvenSense for his work on the ICM-20728, a 3-axis gyroscope + 3-axis accelerometer + pressure sensor single-chip platform.
MEMS/Sensors foundry of the year – X-Fab MEMS foundry
MEMS/Sensor startup of the year – mCube
MEMS/Sensors supplier of the year – SPTS Technologies
MEMS/Sensors designer of the year – InvenSense for the ICM20728, an integrated 3-axis gyroscope + 3-axis accelerometer + pressure sensor.
MEMS/Sensors consultant of the year – Jeremie Bouchaud , IHS
MEMS/Sensors integrator of the year – MEMS Vision
MEMS/Sensors executive of the year – Babak Taheri, Freescale Semiconductors
Lifetime achievement award – Bruno Murari , STMicroelectronics.
