EE C247B/ME C218: Introduction to MEMS Design

EE C247B/ME C218: Introduction to MEMS Design (Spring 2015, UC Berkeley). Instructor: Professor Clark Tu-cuong Nguyen. Introduction to MEMS Design - Physics, fabrication, and design of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS). Micro and nanofabrication processes, including silicon surface and bulk micromachining and non-silicon micromachining. Integration strategies and assembly processes. Microsensor and microactuator devices: electrostatic, piezoresistive, piezoelectric, thermal, magnetic transduction. Electronic position-sensing circuits and electrical and mechanical noise. CAD for MEMS. Design project is required. This course is the same as Mechanical Engineering C218.
