MEMS is an acronym for Micro ElectroMechanical Systems. These techniques employ nanoparticle technology to create delicate electronic circuits and other mechanical devices that can be manufactured onto a silicon microchip in much the same way that integrated circuits are made.
MEMS technology allows for the construction of high-tech items like extremely tiny sensor chips whose electronics are built-in rather than adhered separately; such chips had been produced before, but at a far greater cost and a far larger size. The newer MEMS chips are both tiny and more cost-effective.
