Tutor description

A Microelectromechanical system (MEMS) is a miniature device formed by combining mechanical parts and electronic circuits, typically on a semiconductor chip, with dimensions from tens to a few hundred micrometers (millionths of a meter). Some examples of MEMS devices include accelerometers, robots, locks, micro-mirrors, optical scanners, fluid pumps and transducers

Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS)Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS)A Microelectromechanical system (MEMS) is a miniature device formed by combining mechanical parts and electronic circuits, typically on a semiconductor chip, with dimensions from tens to a few hundred micrometers (millionths of a meter). Some examples of MEMS devices include accelerometers, robots, locks, micro-mirrors, optical scanners, fluid pumps and transducers. As technology continues to improve and continues to be applied to MEMS, an increasing number of novel applications begin to emerge. MEMS are a "fabrication approach that conveys the advantages of miniaturization, multiple components, and microelectronics to the design and construction of integrated electromechanical systems" (Vittorio). Due to ubiquitous nature of MEMS devices, they are without a doubt a multi-billion dollar market with interest
