It is almost impossible to imagine a world without them – sensors have had a monumental impact on our society.

Sensors and micro-sensors using Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology can also be easily found in everyday life, for example as touch-sensitive elevator buttons and safety light barriers. Innumerable applications exist in automobiles, machines, aerospace, medicine, industry and robotics.

However, sensors are sensitive electronic components that require hermetic protection so as to ensure its optimal performance over the course of the lifetime regardless of the environment that it operates it.
