MEMS & Sensors for Smartphone

Integration of MEMS components and sensors is not new to the mobile phone industry. For example, FBAR RF filters and silicon microphones have been integrated on our mobile phones since 2002. More recently, MEMS accelerometers have been established as a “must-have” feature for many smartphones and feature-phones. And other types of sensors, like CMOS image sensors, have experienced a large success in the recent years. ( )

But the mobile phone market is changing extremely quickly. It appears that in 2010 we are at a turning point in the history of MEMS & sensors for handsets: the market for MEMS & sensors will experience double digit growth, from $3.55B in 2009 to $7.91B in 2015.

We have identified several factors explaining why MEMS & sensors will experience this tremendous growth over the next few years:

Share of smartphones is rising faster than ever: 44% of the mobile phones will be smartphones in 2015. Success of smartphones is leading to an increasing amount of MEMS & sensors in mobile phones to provide new features/ services to end-users, to reduce cost through more integration or to improve hardware performance

GPS integration is not limited to high-end phones anymore. Nearly one phone in three will incorporate GPS in 2010. This is an additional driver to integrate motion sensors: when combined with compass, accelerometers or gyroscopes, this enables new services to be deployed

The RF part of cell phones is currently changing very quickly, with more and more multi-band multi-mode mobile phones. The incoming deployment of new standards (LTE network in particular) has a direct impact on RF components and will open new doors for online services using an increasing amount of sensors
