NEMS and MEMS Fabrication Chapter 7

Absolute Pressure Measurement using 3D-MEMS Technology

Authors: R. Russell and U. Meriheinä

Affilation: VTI Technologies, United States

Pages: 511 - 514

Keywords: capacitive pressure sensor, silicon MEMS sensor, high performance, barometric, altimeter, pressure, absolute, 3D-MEMS technology

The use of 3D-MEMS processes has created yet another new breakthrough. Extremely small silicon capacitive absolute pressure sensors can now be realized by utilizing the same MEMS technology that has been in production for many years. The applications where absolute pressure measurement has not been possible due to size or current limitation can now be solved effectively.
