The connection and difference between MEMS sensor and smart sensor
Nowadays, sensors are constantly developing towards miniaturization, low power consumption, high performance and intelligence. With the development of the Internet of Things industry, sensors have also ushered in new development opportunities. In recent years, they have maintained double-digit growth every year. , my country’s sensor market size is close to 150 billion yuan, the types of sensors are diverse, MEMS sensor market size accounts for more than half, and MEMS sensors and smart sensors will undoubtedly be the mainstream in the next few years.

MEMS sensor and smart sensor connection and difference
Whether it is in industry or in the production process of life, the role of sensors is very important, playing the role of information collection and processing. Why do MEMS sensors appear? This is inseparable from the development of chips, materials and manufacturing technology. MEMS sensor is a sensor that integrates electromechanical and control technologies. Compared with traditional sensors, it is smaller in size, lighter in weight, lower in cost, and low in power consumption. MEMS sensors are flexible in size and can be either conventional sensors or chip-level sensors. MEMS sensors can also be smart sensors, which is one of its core advantages.
In recent years, with the advancement of artificial intelligence technology, AI technology is integrated into the sensor, and there is a smart sensor. Smart sensors are sensors with information processing functions. In addition to collecting information, intelligence can also be intelligently processed, and the most valuable information can be selected and transmitted to the information terminal. Smart sensors can reduce product costs and improve accuracy. Ordinary sensors are strong.
MEMS sensors and smart sensors are two different types of sensors, but both have the characteristics of low cost, stable performance and small size. According to the application scenarios, MEMS sensors and smart sensors have their own advantages. With the development of AIoT, MEMS smart sensors may be the mainstream in the future.
Smart sensors are the mainstream form of the sensor industry in the next ten or even twenty years, and the state attaches great importance to this. In 2018, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology announced the relevant plans for smart sensors, which mentioned that my country’s industrial scale will reach 30 billion in 2020. As the foundation of the Internet of Things, the future will play a very critical role in promoting my country’s intelligent process. Not only that, under the general situation of weak underlying technology, China also needs to revitalize technology to prevent sensor jamming. The strategies of “Made in China 2025” and “Information Power” have been deeply rooted in the hearts of the people, and the future is still the main theme, and sensor technology is also realized in my country. An important part of a technologically powerful country. China is the world’s largest application market for the Internet of Things, and the sensor industry will surely benefit. In the future, giant-level sensor companies may be born.
