Dubbed MEMSies by the organizers of the event and the awards, the MEMS Industry Group (MIG), there were 10 awards. However, while STMicroelectronics and InvenSense each picked up two awards there were no gongs going the way of Bosch Sensortec, which is credited with being the 2013 market leader by market research firm Yole Developpement.


MIG stated that the winners were selected by way of a month-long open voting process that took place online based on short lists of candidates.



The full list of winners is:


MEMS/Sensors device of the YearSTMicroelectronics for its LSM6DS3 6-axis accelerometer-gyro combination sensor.


MEMS/Sensors Engineer of the YearJoe Seeger of InvenSense for his work on the ICM-20728, a 3-axis gyroscope + 3-axis accelerometer + pressure sensor single-chip platform.


MEMS/Sensors foundry of the yearX-Fab MEMS foundry


MEMS/Sensor startup of the year mCube


MEMS/Sensors supplier of the yearSPTS Technologies


MEMS/Sensors designer of the yearInvenSense for the ICM20728, an integrated 3-axis gyroscope + 3-axis accelerometer + pressure sensor.


MEMS/Sensors consultant of the yearJeremie Bouchaud, IHS


MEMS/Sensors integrator of the year MEMS Vision


MEMS/Sensors executive of the yearBabak Taheri, Freescale Semiconductors


Lifetime achievement award Bruno Murari, STMicroelectronics.
