Sensors Face A Revolution In Miniaturization

Integra Devices says that current miniaturization technologies, “MEMS” and micro-machining, have only been able to miniaturize components by less than 10%. Such components include sensors, actuators, relays, and larger machined components. Reportedly, Integra Devices is poised to transform this marketplace by offering a disruptive manufacturing platform, dubbed AMALGA, for the miniaturization of these devices.


Via this manufacturing paradigm for miniaturization, Integra offers a new breed of micro-electromechanical products that could not be built before. From miniaturized microwave/mm-wave devices to perpetual batteries and zero-power, wireless sensors, Integra’s suite of solutions enable multiple emerging industries. The Internet of Things, 5G telecommunications, and biotechnology all require smaller, more cost-effective solutions.
