Microelectromechanical systems

  title={Microelectromechanical systems},
  author={Mehran Mehregany},
  journal={IEEE Circuits and Devices Magazine},
The microfabrication techniques used to develop high-performance closed-loop-controlled microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are discussed. A generalized MEMS could consist of mechanical components, sensors, actuators, and electronics, all integrated in the same environment. Bulk and surface micromachining, substrate bonding, and electroforming in conjunction with X-ray lithography, all integral components of silicon micromachining, are described. The development of a materials base for MEMS… CONTINUE READING
