SEMI’s MEMS and Sensors Industry Group (MSIG) focuses on the MEMS and Sensors supply chain and currently has over 180 member companies around the world.  MSIG has two main events, the MEMS and Sensors Technical Congress (MSTC), and the MEMS and Sensors Executive Congress (MSEC). 

Each year at the MSEC, companies are invited to compete for the Product Showdown award. This year, the criterion was Sensing as a Service, and 5 companies gave presentations and then live technical demonstrations, followed by the audience voting. Bassam Saadany, co-founder and CTO of Si-Ware Systems gave the presentation and then demonstrated the NeoSpectra platform for on-site analysis of food, feed, and agricultural products. Si-Ware Systems won the award with almost 1/3 of the votes tallied, beating other MEMS products in environmental, health, and audio applications.

“It is a great honor to receive this award from MSEC,” said Bassam. “In this dynamic field with many companies using cutting-edge technologies to solve a variety of difficult problems, we are very proud to be recognized as a leader in developing an affordable hi-performance sensing platform that provides real value to our customers.”

Youssri Helmy, CEO of Si-Ware Systems continued, “This award is a recognition of the team and Si-Ware who took a ground-breaking technical achievement in our MEMS FT-NIR spectrometer and created an innovative, user-friendly platform that provides anyone with accurate quality analysis from anywhere. The NeoSpectra by Si-Ware platform is already helping food, feed, and agricultural producers around the globe improve production efficiency and reduce waste.”
