For multiple reasons, MEMS sensors and transducers have almost exclusively been limited to silicon substrates.  But silicon does have some inherent disadvantages, and there are multiple substrates that offer better alternatives than silicon and serve as strong candidates for specific applications.  This talk will explore some of the criteria that help decide the choice of substrate and when alternate substrates may provide a better avenue to commercialization.  A case study on the development of fingerprint based biometric sensors using alternate substrates will also be presented
