Benedetto Vigna received his degree in Physics from University of Pisa in 1993. He was the pioneer of micromachining activity in ST Microelectronic where he started to work on inertial sensors. He spent two years at Berkeley Sensors and Actuator Center in California and after a management course he became the director of MEMS Business Unit. His Business Unit is working on different MEMS product families at different stage of development: Inertial, Radio-frequency, Acoustic and Biological MEMS. He has filed more than 60 patents on micromachining field with specific attention to the market applications and he has many publications on this field. He belongs to the steering committee of international conferences. His biggest achievement is the start-up of the Inertial MEMS production inside ST Microelectronics.
