Transducers are devices that change some type of energy – such as light, motion, heat, or a chemical reaction – from one form into another. For example, actuators are a type of transducer that convert energy into motion. When the output of a transducer converts the energy to a readable format (an analog or digital representation), it is called a sensor. Many types of transducers and sensors are used to convert and measure signals generated in the environment all around us, and their applications continue to grow. While producing these specialty devices generally does not necessarily require the latest generations of processing equipment, it does require the development of processes to support many unique device designs. Also, some of the fabrication steps involve materials not used in other device types, such as piezoelectric thin films. As a result, equipment technical capability, reliability, productivity, and overall cost-effectiveness are critical.
