Easily Mass-Produced Sensor Could Become Commonplace

A University of Florida (UF) engineer is the latest researcher to design a tiny, easy-to-manufacture motion sensor, a development that could help popularize the sensors as standard equipment in personal electronics, medical devices and other applications.

The sensor, which measures about 3 square millimeters or one-tenth of an inch, is not the smallest motion sensor ever invented. But it is extremely sensitive, draws only a tiny amount of electrical power and � most important � is one of a new generation of sensors that can be made using the computer chip manufacturing industry�s standard techniques and equipment.
