The demand and variety of applications for MEMS sensors has been growing steadily since the first series applications in the automotive sector in the early 1990s. Especially since the rise of fast-moving consumer markets, quick and efficient design has become increasingly important. However, in particular for MEMS, the strong interaction of product design and manufacturing processes is a major challenge. The growing number of applications for sensing of various physical and increasingly chemical parameters, often require specific solutions in MEMS production, chip level packaging and component testing as well. Fast and market-driven product development is only possible through innovative design concepts and the provision of modular process building blocks. A deep understanding of the interrelationships and the development of corresponding simulation tools are further key competencies. As market leader in MEMS sensor business and one of the first MEMS pioneers, BOSCH is continuously pushing forward the development of MEMS technology. The extension of our process platform originally defined for automotive applications to consumer products opens up new possibilities in the realization of complex 3D structures. This enables new product designs that are reflected in high-performance sensors for both automotive and consumer electronics applications. The presentation gives a short overview of the different requirements on MEMS technology compared to standard IC design and manufacturing. It provides insights into the future development in the field of surface micromechanics and highlights challenges and solutions of MEMS technology development and manufacturing as well as design methodology. In addition, we give examples of new design and product concepts and finally question: Does the old MEMS law "one product, one process" continue to apply?

Dr. Udo-Martin Gómez Senior Vice President Sensor Engineering, Robert Bosch GmbH Dr. Gómez is Senior Vice President of Robert Bosch GmbH. He is heading the Sensor Engineering at Bosch Automotive Electronics (AE/NE-SE) in Reutlingen, Germany, the world’s largest MEMS supplier serving the Automotive, Consumer Electronics and IoT industry. Having completed his doctorate in physics, Dr. Gómez started his career at Robert Bosch GmbH in 1999 at Corporate Sector Research and Advanced Engineering (MEMS technology). Before joining Bosch Automotive Electronics in April 2018, he worked in various management positions at Bosch and also held the position of Chief Expert for MEMS sensor technology. From 2013 to March 2018, he was Chief Technical Officer of Bosch Sensortec GmbH - a fully-owned subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH, responsible for research and development of micro-electro-mechanical sensors (MEMS) for consumer electronics, smartphones, security systems, industrial technology and logistics. Since 2014, Dr. Gómez is Deputy Chairman of the Board of VDE/VDI-Society Microelectronics, Microsystems and Precision Engineering (GMM). Since 2015, he is also member of the GSA (Global Semiconductor Alliance) EMEA Leadership Council.
