Manufacturing Bits: Nov. 24


Tiny MEMS gyroscope CEA-Leti and Politecnico di Milano (POLIMI) have developed the world’s smallest MEMS gyroscope. Based on a nano-resistive sensing technology, the gyroscope enables a navigation-grade performance with a sensor footprint of only 1.3mm2. The tiny gyroscope is targeted for high-volume markets like automotive and others. The technology was reported in a paper, entitled “1... » read more

Angstrom-Level Measurements With AFMs


Competition is heating up in the atomic force microscopy (AFM) market, where several vendors are shipping new AFM systems that address various metrology challenges in packaging, semiconductors and other fields. AFM, a small but growing field that has been under the radar, involves a standalone system that provides surface measurements on structures down to the angstrom level. (1 angstrom = 0... » read more

The Great Quantum Computing Race


Quantum computing is heating up, as a growing number of entities race to benchmark, stabilize, and ultimately commercialize this technology. As of July 2021, a group from China appears to have taken the lead in terms of raw performance, but Google, IBM, Intel and other quantum computer developers aren’t far behind. All of that could change overnight, though. At this point, it's too early t... » read more
