We review some of the attractive attributes of microengineering and relate them to features of the highly successful silicon microelectronics industry. We highlight the need for cost effective functionality rather than ultimate performance as a driver for success and review key examples of polysilicon devices from this point of view. The effective exploitation of the data generated by the cost effective polysilicon sensors is also considered and we conclude that `non traditional' data analysis will need to be exploited if full use is to be made of polysilicon devices.
