How Micro-Electro-Mechanical systems are taking over mobile devices

 

Micro-Electro-Mechanical systems in mobile devices

 

Mobile device technologies have come a long way in terms of system or component integration and characterisation.

 

Mobile devices including smartphones, tablets, eReaders, laptops and netbooks are currently embedded with many devices such as sensors, accelerometers, gyroscope, speakers and others which have been reduced in size and weight.

 

Over the last 5 years, MEMS have been extensively deployed and introduced in mobile devices as well as other consumer electronics such as game consoles, digital camera, inkjet printers, projectors and pressure checks for various aspects and elements of their design including sensors, display, audio and RF components.

 

Prime examples of this kind of device sophistication and development are the iPhone and Nintendo Wii.

 

The iPhone, from a mobile device standpoint, is primarily responsible for spurring the demand for MEMS devices.

 

The gyroscope based on MEMS was featured in the iPhone 4 to detect the orientation by measuring vibrations detected by the electronic circuit.

 

Apple also uses MEMS accelerometers in the iPhone as well as in the iPod Touch and iPad to detect the speed and direction of the tilted side and orientate the screen accordingly.

 

Other smartphone devices including BlackBerry Torch also make use of MEMS accelerometers and gyroscopes.

  • Gartner: A perspective on Android 2.2 for the enterprise

    Android has a more sophisticated user interface paradigm than its closest competitor, Apple. Although some of the platform's improvements play catch-up with Apple, in other areas, they outpace Apple, something Google clearly associates with the open-source nature of the product. By endorsing Flash, which Apple will not support, Google is appealing to those who wish to preserve an organisationʼs investments.


    While Android has taken market share from all the major smartphone suppliers, the market continues to watch for a platform that can take share from Apple. Many customers ask us to compare the two, and do not ask for comparisons against others (e.g., Research In Motion's BlackBerry), because only Android's target device design, a full open-face touchscreen (keyboard optional), is comparable to Apple's iPhone. While Android has taken market share from RIM, BlackBerry devices generally appeal to those who prefer portrait-oriented keyboard devices.
