MEMS for practical applications

Masayoshi Esashi

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Silicon MEMS as electrostatically levitated rotational gyroscopes and 2D optical scanners, and wafer level packaged devices as integrated capacitive pressure sensors and MEMS switches are described. MEMS which use non-silicon materials as LTCC with electrical feedthrough, SiC and LiNbO3 for probe cards for wafer-level burn-in test, molds for glass press molding and SAW wireless passive sensors respectively are also described.
