PT International, LLCSemiconductor Training

fundamentals of mems design & fabrication

This introductory course is designed to educate people from any background on the exciting new technologies and markets being developed in MEMS. The course begins with basic fabrication technologies, including traditional methods and the latest techniques. Next is an explanation of the governing equations of these devices, where many things are different from macro-scale electromechanical systems. Fabrication and design are illustrated with examples of existing and future products in inertial sensors, optical fiber switching, displays, and sensor networks.
