Abstract
The NEXUS Association, a European initiative that has established a world-wide Network of users and suppliers of Microsystems, was initially set up in the early 90s to assist European industry exploit the potential of microsystems (MST/MEMS) and microsystem-based technologies. To date, NEXUS members (over 600) have embarked on analysing market opportunities and technology roadmaps for MST/MEMS products and applications. Directed, primarily, by application-driven technology users, NEXUS has initiated a number of tasks to help provide strategic guidance for industry and research to encourage the uptake of the technology beyond its conventional realm. In this context, NEXUS through its User-Supplier-Clubs (USCs), in general, and that for telecommunications (USC-T), in particular, has produced forecasts addressing the potential of microsystems insertion into telecommunication systems over the next 10 years in the context of functionality advancements and network evolution.
