While some of the MEMS companies continue to face downward price pressures, there are many new products, devices and technologies that are in development. Many of these innovations will be launched in the marketplace in the coming months. One company that is contributing to this “new wave” of MEMS is Si-Ware Systems (SWS), based in Cairo, Egypt. We recently spoke with Dr. Hisham Haddara, SWS’ President and CEO, about his company’s origins, current activities and challenges, business threats and opportunities, and recent marketplace dynamics. Hisham also discusses their new products, such as the MEMS based single-chip spectrometer and the all-silicon oscillator, which are scheduled to hit the market in 2015.
