Simple tracking for extreme environments using MEMs sensors.
Micro electro mechanical Systems (MEMS) Technology is a processing technology based on principles of semiconductor manufacture to create and combine miniaturized sensors, actuators and processing into a single chip which provides an interface to the micro world. These MEMS sensors remain largely invisible to us every day, however they are in our car (crash detection), mobile phone (sense phone orientation and microphone), video projectors (tiny mirrors reflecting light onto a big screen), watch (altitude sensor), disk drives (drop sensing) and pedometers (sense steps). Bluechiip® has used this technology to create a MEMS tracking system.
The smart chips are designed to be incorporated into existing or new products that require enhanced security, reliability and data permanency, which is an ever increasing demand. Bluechiip’s novel technology can survive gamma irradiation and survive and operate in extreme temperature conditions, offering a competitive alternative to traditional barcode and RFID tracking technologies. Bluechiip® is the only company that can provide temperature chain‑ofcustody tracking to operate end to end within the specimen lifecycle for valuable sample storage.
