Paper Abstract

Following the publication of a first market survey and a technology roadmap in 1998/2000, the NEXUS Association has continued its efforts on analyzing market opportunities and technology roadmaps for Microsystems (MST) and MEMS products and applications. Directed, primarily, by application-driven technology users, NEXUS has championed such tasks to help provide strategic guidance for industry and research to encourage the uptake of the technology beyond its conventional realm. In this context, NEXUS through its User-Supplier-Clubs (USCs) has produced forecasts addressing the potential of MST/MEMS insertion into telecommunication systems over the next 10 years in the context of functionality advancements and network evolution. The Roadmaps chart forecasts for functionalities, underpinned by MST/MEMS-based solutions and progress for a selection of applications considered of prime importance for the MST/MEMS related markets. The NEXUS Roadmap report will be released in Q1 2003. This presentation will outline the methodologies adopted for the road-mapping activity and provide some of the MOEMS-related results. In addition, further roadmaps on polymer micro-optics and a modular approach for MOEMS manufacturing will be highlighted.
