When Steve Jobs introduced the iPhone in 2007, it paved the way to the explosion in smartphone technology that has integrated the devices into everyday life.
A driving force behind this technological revolution is the sensor. In many cases, these sensors are part of a microelectromechanical system (MEMS), which allows for data transduction and facilitates data processing at a microscopic level. Wonder how your cell phone has shrunk since your first bag phone, all while adding many more tasks? Thanks, in part, goes to MEMS technology.
