Paper Abstract

This presentation looks first at the opportunity and characteristics of silicon microstructures that make it an enabling technology, followed by examples where the technology has found markets. A summary of the industry characteristics and a comparison and contrast with the traditional electronics industry follows. A profile of successful microstructure applications and future trends leads to insight on how to structure a commercially viable approach. Finally, a summary of the market drivers and requirements and the true cost of ownership provides guidance on markets where a microstructure solution makes sense.
