Toshiba taps MEMS to shrink fuel cells

Toshiba Corp. has developed a MEMS-based pump for fuel cells, a move seen as an important step forward in miniaturizing the devices for portable systems. Toshiba's prototype device uses microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) technology to pump fuel and air into a passive fuel cell stack for a portable phone recharger, said Fumio Ueno, a technology executive with the company.
