The Growing Internet of Things
The term Internet of Things ( IoT ) describes the expanding interactive capacities of smart networks of processing systems. Increasingly communicating with each other, they drive enhanced smart automation in many fields, including:
More and more, cars aren't just made of steel, aluminum, plastic and silicon. Parylene is becoming one of the most useful tools in an automaker's arsenal. From protecting internal sensors and circuit boards to keeping LED indicator lights bright and color-accurate, Parylene conformal coatings are an important part of protecting today's sensitive automotive electronics.
WHAT ARE MEMS?
Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) is the technology of very small devices; it merges at the nano-scale into nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS) and nanotechnology. MEMS are made up of components between 1 to 100 micrometres in size (i.e. 0.001 to 0.1 mm), and MEMS devices generally range in size from 20 micrometres (20 millionths of a metre) to a millimetre (i.e. 0.02 to 1.0 mm). They usually consist of a central unit that processes data (the microprocessor) and several components that interact with the outside such as microsensors.
