What is MEMS?MEMS is short for Micro-electro-mechanical Systems. It s a technology that are made using the techniques of microfabrication. So MEMS has very small size ranging 1μm~several mms.
Functional elements of MEMS are miniaturized structures: microstructure, microsensors, microactuators and microelectronics, among which the most notable components are the microsensors and microactuators. Despite small size, MEMS exerts great function in various fields including astronomy, networking, communications and so on.
How MEMS works?
The principle is simple. Microsensors and microactuators convert energy from one form to another, like a measured mechanical signal into an electrical signal. Electromagnetic induction works through mechanical arm + electrode (made of electromagnetic coil) to drive it work. When electromagnet induction lines mechanical arm with transmission line, it's on. To the contrary, when mechanical arm is disconnected with transmission, it is off.
Features of MEMSMEMS is distinguished with Smart and Multidisciplinary.
MEMS is Extremely Small and available for Batch Production
