MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) is the name for the United States, in Japan, known as MEMS, in Europe known as the micro-system, which is available in volume production, the set of micro-institutions, micro-sensors, micro actuators and signal processing and control circuit, until the interface, communication and power is one of the micro-devices or systems. MEMS is a micro-processing technology with semiconductor integrated circuits and ultra-precision machining technology and developed, the current processing technology is also widely used in MEMS microfluidic chips and synthetic biology and other fields, so the biochemistry laboratory chip technology integration process.
Tutorial on Micro-Electro-Mechanical-Systems (MEMS) Sept 29, 2010 Organized by Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology (VNIT) Nagpur, INDIAN AIR FORCE Maintenance Command HQ Nagpur & Shri Ramdeobaba Kamla Nehru Engineering College Nagpur About the Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS): Micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) is the integration of micro mechanical elements, sensors, actuators, and electronic devices, integrated on a common silicon substrate through microfabrication technology. There are numerous possible applications for MEMS and Smart Systems. Current MEMS devices include accelerometer for airbag sensors, inject printer heads, projection display chips, optical switches, biosensors and many other products. Among many technologies that seem to have vast potential for application, MEMS seems highly promising. Coupled with the smart materials and systems technology, MEMS find applications from aerospace to automobile engineering, from environmental monitoring to biomedical health sciences. The specific areas include development of new sensor and actuator materials, processing and characterization of smart materials, constitutive modeling, newer methods of analysis, device design and fabrication, electronics and packaging, smart structural design for optimum power and performance, and development of control algorithms. Mechanical engineers are needed for the design of MEMS, the analysis of mechanical system, the design of testing apparatus, the implementation of analytical tools, and the packaging process scaling can be illustrated in the main areas of mechanical engineering of solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, dynamics , tribology and heat transfer. Microfludics becoming the popular topic in MEMS for the great potential in bioanalytical and bioprocessing for clinical, laboratory and pharmaceutical Microsystems. About the Tutorial: The tutorial is organized to make the participants aware of the various issues in MEMS and encourage them to consider this field as their career.
