Invitation to Participate in MEMS Industry Commercialization Report Card

Dear MEMS Colleague…good day. 
The year 2019 marked the 21st. anniversary of the creation and publication of my MEMS Industry Commercialization Report Card  (Report Card) with its important and unique retrospective “yardstick” assessing the progress (or lack thereof) of the successful commercialization of MEMS. Most noteworthy were the two episodes of the Report Card published in Fierce Electronics in November 2020 (which appear on this website in the “Articles” section). Additionally, several presentations were featured at international conferences/webinars including MANCEF's, COMS World 2020 in October, available in this website's "Videos" section.

I am inviting you to participate in my 2020 Report Card.

You are one of a very small group of individuals whom I have asked to participate because of your long-standing and significant role in the commercialization of MEMS. As such, I would greatly appreciate your valuable contribution to this project at this time. Please include your “grade” for each of these critical success factors using the form below for the calendar year 2020. 

In addition, I would greatly appreciate your verbatim comment on the subject(s) that you consider differ most significantly from the 2019 score and your rationale. You may use the text boxes provided in the Report Card Data Collection Form. Kindly send your completed form back to me via email no later than midnight, Pacific Time on Tuesday, June 8, 2021. The results of the Report Card will be presented in several international publications as well as presented at several international conferences and webinars.

Since you are one of a very small number of highly experienced and knowledgeable MEMS individuals that I have reached out to, your response is most valuable and greatly appreciated. For those who respond, I will send you a copy of the final report. In addition, you will be entered into a random drawing from the respondents for a chance to win a $100 Gift Card.  I wish you good luck and thank you very much for your valuable input to this most important and valuable MEMS Industry survey.
