MEMS sensors are indispensable in vehicles and electronic devices today. The first versions were used in motor vehicles as pressure sensors and accelerometer. Over time, the largest technology driver for MEMS changed from automotive applications to consumer electronics – dominated by smartphones. Beyond that, MEMS sensors have become the heart of whole classes of new devices like fitness trackers, smart watches, virtual reality glasses and smart sensor nodes for the Internet of Things (IoT).
In 1995, the start of large scale production at Bosch was laid as the foundation for modern technology. Bosch is a pioneer and the world's leading supplier of MEMS sensors in the automotive and consumer electronics industry.
indispensable for innovative solutions
MEMS sensors are the basics for a significantly more varied, convenient and intelligent use of electronic devices.
high-precision in minimal space
MEMS technology allows, for example, to accommodate a total of nine sensors used to determine absolute spatial orientation in a space of just 2 x 3.5 x 0.95 mm3.
