The development of MEMS devices has generally followed a bottom up methodology, reaching now a stage where the capabilities of the devices could be used much more effectively in systems designed from the top down to include them. A holistic view of the requirements of MEMS based systems and the capabilities of the microdevices must be taken such systems are to deliver the promise that was expected. This paper presents an overview of the integrative perspective required for workers in all areas of the field, to enable them to appreciate the system level design issues leading to breakthrough cogent sensing applications.
