Hello from El Dorado Hills CA

Iron

What breakthroughs drove the cost reduction .... e.g. proof of concepts that showed market potential, therefore investment in process?  What process changes occured ... evolutionary from semiconductor knowledge or revolutionary in chemistry, lithography etc??  Are the fab houses investing millions, billions in retooling ... etc

 

I saw slide 8 ...

Conceptually I would be thinking along the lines of 'backfilling' voids with an etchable or particle sensitive material that can be removed after cut and bond.  Sort of like making concrete pillars and filling the voids with plaster and etching out the plaster on completion, but with deposition or thermal (or laser?) process, -- chemical (e.g. etching) probably not an option at the back-end processing after wafer cut??? (No I never smoked pot at Berkeley, never even been to Berkeley <wink>)

 

Interesting presentation and great topic ...

Thanks for archiving these sessions, this is one I wish I were able to attend live ...

excellent presentation with very informative graphs

Iron

Hi From San Jose, CA

HW/Test R&D Engineer;

Aware of TI, Bosch, STMicro.

I was out of loop about MEMS sensors till now.

 

Great information, Thank you Alissa and Alex.

Iron

Great information, Thank you Alissa and Alex

I was out of loop about MEMS sensors till now, I think that it is a low cost driven breakout to use MEMS sensors.

Planning to use gyro sensors

No particular use for MEMS sensors

HW R&D, Electronic Engineer

Very useful. Good work.

 

Iron

Freescale, TI ..........

Iron

Have worked on a few projects mostly sensors for pressure, temp, acceleration etc

Iron

Sensors and fluidatics

Iron

Thank you Alissa and Alex for another great presentation.  Very interesting stuff here.  

Iron

You are not alone, Alex: I knew very little about MEMS before today.

Iron

I don't think that we have specific plans to incorporate MEMS sensors into the process in the immediate future,  but we are exploring options for a major overhaul of our current process.  

Iron

I am primarily hardware, but starting to broaden my horizons in software.

Iron

How would height detection work when barometric pressure varies with time? Would there not have to be a reference to ground and communication with the ground sensor?

Gold

I was not aware of the diversity of MEMS. I thought there were only a few products, very specialized, for mass market.

Gold

Fasinating Stuff looking forward to tommarrow

Listing in again to review the lecture

Good introduction to CEMS. Thank you.

Iron

Thank you for a great presentation. Good introduction to MEMS and Application areas.

Thank you for the presentation

Iron

Thank you for a great introduction.  Very interesting topic even I am in manufacturing of MEMS, but the application is much wider then I have heard before. 

Iron

Like to understand more on the reliability testing on MEMS and reliability criteira.  Unlike silicon devices, MEMS is a electro mechanical structure, many reliability is related to the mechancial strength degradation rather than a electrical parametric shift.  How and what standard MEMS reliability we have today ?  What organization is helping to define this standard ?

Iron

Ti, freescale, Triquent, ... etc.

Iron

Yes.  Explosion of MEMS come when start to study Wii's application and then learn about printer MEMS technology.

Iron

yes

inkjet, biomems, accelometers

Sorry, somehow I hit refresh and hae to listen to the whole presentation over again.  But at least the info is re-enforce as what is MEMS.

Iron

TSV is a potential methodology for die stacking - similar to early bumping processing

Iron

What was the origin purpose of Bosch research in DRIE methodology to create ulta deep trench ?

Iron

precision oscillator (clock application)

Iron

Actually using silicon as mechanical structures and manufacturing MEMS devices

Iron

MEMS manufacturing engineering

Iron

thanks for a good presentation.

Iron

Thank you Dr. Fitzgerald

Iron

Alissa and Alex (and Digi-Key) - thanks!  Looking forward to the rest of the talks!

Alright! I will e-see you'll tomorrow.

Iron

Thank you Dr. Fitzgerald

Iron

I know you didn't mean that literally - but that's where great ideas sometimes come from!

Iron

Thanks Alissa. What about packaging?  It seems that this is almost as hard as making the device?  Orientation, testing, metrology all seem really hard at such a small scale

MEMS Legos would be a boon to product development - great idea!

Iron

MEMS are being used in hearing aids and photonics, to answer a couple of questions below.  And yes, to detect bad breath! (methane...!)

Ok, my time is up today.  I'll look forward to chatting with all of you tomorrow.

thanks Alissa and Alex for the great introduction. See all tomorrow, time to earn my keep.

Iron

ALISSA: What about mixing sensing with processing on the same substract.

Iron

MEMS processing uses a combination of deposition and subtraction/etch processes.  It all depends what you are trying to make.

There are lots of non-silicon process technologies used in MEMS, such as: ultrasonic drilling, laser drilling, electroplating, molding.  Some people are exploring how to inkjet MEMS and ICs, as well.

 

"DEPOSITION" OR "EXTRACTION". I think it is rather extraction with some deposition.

Iron

Lots of questions about standards - yes, there are a lot of people trying to figure out how best to create and implement standards.  It's a tricky question.  You'll see in my slides Tue-Thur about how many different ways there are to make even just one device, like a gyroscope.  The problem with MEMS is that you need to have vertical features, and to get a certain vertical feature, you need a specific process step.  So the design dictates the process and vice versa.  I think the most likely scenario is that we will standardize process modules, or process steps.  Think standardized Lego blocks that can be put in any order to create a given device.

MEMS is a deposition process.  Do you envision printing technologies eventually being used (e.g. inkjet, microgravure, etc.)?

of course as someone mentioned - crystals have been used in RF for 100 years - what old is new again!

Iron

Later this week, I'll be discussing all kinds of MEMS sencors and actuators.

Someone asked about reliability - MEMS are very reliable devices - once they've been properly developed and tested, of course.  Silicon is as strong as steel, and doesn't have a fatigue process like metals do *(there have been some rare exceptions observed, but it's generally not a problem for commercial devices)

 

Are there any current MEMS production using laser micromachining?

Gold

Our company does early stage MEMS development, so you can work with us to develop a new chip before it's ready for manufacture by a foundry.

Hilton Head? Great - we can do a second honymoon there! (32 and counting!)

Iron

MIG was trying to come up with testing standars a couple of years ago. Do you know that status of these standards? Did the effort mature?

 

Iron

Audio is off until tomorrow.

Iron

Alex - earlier I think you mentioned something about Boston - conference or ???   - what/when is it?

Thanks much Alldds and Alex.

Iron

Will you be discussing MEMS oscillators or only MEMS sensors this week?

Iron

There are many MEMS foundries that specialize in custom MEMS development: Micralyne, Silex Microsystems, IMT, DALSA, Tronics, Asia Pacific, MEMSCAP, even TSMC

Audi9o is offf. Please help

Iron

Thanks for that list! Alissa

 

Iron

With MEMS Technology can you make devices which use a solenoid for actuation?

TIA

Iron

Is there going to be a recording of the audio stream for download at some point?

Iron

There are a lot of great resources if you're interested to learn more about MEMS:

MEMS Industry Group - their webpage has a lot of resources

IEEE Journal of MicroElectroMechanicalSystems - if you want to read about emerging research and the deep technical details

Conferences:  MEPTEC MEMS Symposium, Santa Clara, CA May 23, Hilton Head Workshop June 3-7 www.hh2012.org, Sensors Expo 2012 in Rosemont, IL, June 5-7

 

what is the current state of Preasure sensors for height or altitude measurement in mems. Are there any suppliers in this area?

Iron

GREAT LECTURE.  new technology every day.  will we ever catch-up???

Question to Alex: what's up with "IRON" vs. "GOLD" - free riders vs those who paid for the class?

Iron

"Silicon as a Mechanical Material" - PDF is at http://inst.cs.berkeley.edu/~n245/fa01/PETERSEN.PDF

I appreciate the class. Thankyou

 

Iron

on slide 13 you talk about gesture recognition - to what device are you referring for this functionality?

Iron

Are we to stay here for Q&A or go to another site?

Iron

See (hear) you tomorrow Alissa.  BTW, we'd still like to have your photo next to your name here on our forum.  All your predecessors posted theirs as well.

Iron

Thank you very much

Iron

Excellent presentation!  Want to learn more.  Thank you.

Iron

Thanks for a great introduction to a new technology ! Looking forward to follow up courses.

Iron

Is there a list of MEMS devices available? Would like to see what's out there.

Iron

2-Questions:1)  MEMS sensitivity to: magnetic fields, electrostatics, electric fields, and if sensitive, how to compensted?

Question2: when is MEMS larger size better than smaller size?

Iron

Thanks Alissa!!!

 

Iron

Silicon as a Mechanical Material. KURT E. PETERSEN is also an important paper to refer

Hi everyone, the questions are coming fast, so I'll try to answer as many as I can... and type quickly!

 

Thanks Alissa and Alex.

Iron

I would be curious to learn how the auto industry packages these to survive vibration.

jpm

Iron

@Alissa - are there MEMS freq detectors

Iron

Very nice presentation thus far.  Eagerly awaiting the following presentations!

Iron

Looking forward to the rest of the week; thanks!

Gold

Thx. Alissa and Alex

Iron

Can you tell us more about efforts to expand production beyond the customized devices MEMS are today? In other words, how can they be produced in higher volumes?

Blogger

Thank you.  Nice intro.

Iron

What is challenge in packaging something like a pressure sensor?

 

Iron

Iron

Thank you for today's presentation

 

Iron

thanks, very great info

Iron

Thank you Alissa! It was a very informative lecture...

Iron

Thanks for the presentation!

Iron

Is there an alternative to mems products, like accelerometers? in terms of functionality and price?

Iron

Great presentation that made me realize how much I don't know about MEMS :-)  Thanks

Iron

Excellent into to MEMS. Thank You Alissa!

Iron

Is there a good reference book on the present state of the art MEMS? and is there a separate IEEE journal on MEMS?

Iron

Thank you. Great intro

thanks Alissa, great intro and excellent content, thanks again Alex

Iron

I'm also curious about long-term reliability and ruggedness - accelerometers in Wii controls and phones seem pretty reliable - other MEMS devices???

What are the available motion sensor MEMS?

Are MEMS generally RoHS-compliant?

Iron

any special process is needed for soldering MEMS?

What's the contact lens application on the last slide?

Iron

Pardon my stupidity, but is there a video track for these presentations?

Iron

How is reliability, how many years of use? DLP? pressure sensors? G force sensors? What % of  cost is package?

what are the precuations while assembling MEMS on PCB?

Very helpful presentation, thanks

Iron

Are there solder process issues with MEMS?

ALISSA: What is the minimum cost to start making MEMS? Are we close to doing this in the garage? :o)

Iron

what is the lifespan of a typical MEMS accelerometer?

I was not aware of the extent of applications of mems in consumer devices.

 

Iron

Are there any issues with reflow of MEMS in board-level manufacturing, or other board design issues to worry about because of packaging?

Iron

How compatible non silicon MEMS devices are with integrating with CMOS circuitry?

Iron

What are the top (5) US universities doing R&D in MEMS?

Iron

Great class, current and very helpful. Keep this stuff coming.

Will you comment on the reliability of MEMS?

@Alissa, how is ther fragile MEMS chip ruggedized once it is packaged?

Iron

You mentioned that the production of MEMS is basically locked up by a number of big players in the industry, but there is still a lot of room for innovation and small ventures to participate. Please elaborate on these opportunities.

Iron

how critical is packaging in MEMS?

decrease of volume/surface ratio has profound implications for the design of MEMS

mems is not 3d printing.. mems is made by removeing the material rather than adding

 

Iron

I join Lawson's question - wonder if TI is "#1 in MEMS" just because of the DLP?

Iron

ALISSA/ALEX: Why not mix the micro-mechanical devices on silicon with IC/ASIC/FPGA in one waffer?

Iron

Does MEMS relate to 3D printing technology ?

 

is the class recorded?

Iron

the word "scaling" has to be used instead of shrinking

Is TI #1 seller because of DLP?  Do they have other MEMS?

Iron

ST Micro, Analog Devices, also some very high-end (and high-priced) MEMS accelerometer companies (Colibrys, Memsic, Vibra-Metrics...)

Not aware of who makes MEMS

Iron

ANSWER: WHAT MEMS SENSORS  COMPANIES ARE YOU AWARE OF?

Blogger

what slide are we on...just got here

@caa028 Two words that can be interchanged in a context are said to be synonymous relative to that context

 

Alan - likely as a microphone

Iron

50% ST production (Italy) into apple

 

Iron

Benedetto Vigna of ST micro made the first MEMS

curious - any use of MEMS within hearing aids?

@vimalkumarp - you may want to review what the definition of synonym is...

Iron

@iBru:  MEMS for 3D printing would be interesting...

Iron

you can print electronic circuit boards etc.

Iron

Drop might be due to the cuts in research funds

Iron

@Simon: the recession?

 

Iron

I am not aware of the MEMS explosion.. but used MEMS in the past and like Alissa said, paid quite a lot for these sensors..

Iron

InkJet will morph into 3D Printing - has already

 

Iron

how come there was a drop in 2009?

Iron

Charles - Mass Air Flow Sensor, all manner of pressure sensors - manifold pressure, tire, oil, etc.

Iron

how come there is a drop in 2009??? 

Iron

MEMS is synonymous with accelerometer

 

Was not aware of MEMS until about 6 months ago.

Iron

Alex: How many people are attending these lectures in the average

Iron

Dr. Fitzgerald: You mentioned 40 or so MEMS in Audis and BMWs, especially in airbags and tire pressure sensing. Other than those two, and in electronic stability control, which automotive systems are using those 40 MEMS?

Blogger

finally good to know that the things in there are called MEMS :-)

Iron

evaluated some accelerometers & gyros apps

Iron

Yes, even with a sensors background, I am frequently surprised at the new advances and the very low cost of some of these sensors.

Iron

Mostly aware of explosion

Iron

Will MEMS oscillators be discussed?

Iron

I am aware of the explosion of MEMS, but know little about it

 

Iron

UWARENESS: Read something about it 10 years ago about MIT war bugs research, lately I read a paper about this flying insect development. NOT MUCH use beyong the iPhone compass

Iron

On the same page with Alex...

Iron

MEMS are new to me

 

Interested in automotive & consumer applications, I am not HW engineer, but business development engineer, so interested in learning about new technology. 

Iron

I have been following MEMS for about 2 years since we started our Lab (http://www.acutronic.com/global/us/test-solutions.html)

Iron

heard about it.  but no much about it's applications

Iron

I knew MEMES were used as pressure sensors and accelerometers, and they had applications in biomed, too. But was not aware of other applications

Iron

Yes, I had worked in a research lab that was pioneering some special MEMS applications in guidance/navigation, biomed, and other sensing applications

Iron

Knew about much of explosion. Was not aware of bio apps.

Iron

Familiar, but trying to get an update and understand overall market factors.

Iron
are there mems sensors for photonics?
Iron

Much the same as Alex - Primarily aware about accelerometers & gyros

Iron

I was aware of the explosion of MEMS but not to this extent.

Iron

had not realized accelerometers is MEMS - other than that, I'm flabbergasted at this - wicked cool stuff!

Out ot the loop until a simple IPOD could be used as a framing level.

More or less out of the loop for MEMS

Iron

not aware of the explosive use of MEMS. was under the impression is was a more current technology

Iron

ANSWER:  WERE  YOU AWARE OF HOW  ADVANCED MEMS DEVICES HAVE BECOME? (Or were you like me and thought they were still mainly used as accelerometers for auto airbag deployment?)

Blogger

what are the common available MEMS for motion detection?

yes, MEMS have exploded in all areas - with more to come {I hope}

Iron

just accelerometers and gyros

Iron

@Alex - No.  I was not aware of how extensive MEMS has become.

Iron

I was aware. I studied cantilevers in grad school

Gold

I wasn't familiar with MEMS before this lecture - which is why I joined :)

Iron

yes, i was aware of the explosion.

Iron

yes very much aware of MEMS explosion

application interest? - all general info

Iron

is there any work on FPGA stacked with MEMS technology?

Iron

Half way done and I can not even download the side... what a drag...

 

Iron

Are MEMS more reliable and robust to failure?

 

 

Iron

Sorry, hhanley. If Chrome didn't work, I'm out of suggestions. 

Blogger

@hhanley: some companies block live streams. in that case, you;'ll have to listen to the archive from home.

Blogger

@danlafleur Maybe the phone won't let you dial certain numbers if you have too much blood alcohol?

Iron

Are non silicon MEMS devices compatible with integrating with CMOS circuitry?

Iron

sorry, updated both machines with chrome and still no audio. looks like I will have to take a back seat

 

Iron

I've used accelerometers for orientation detection and hard disk protection.  No current projects.

Use MEMS to sense the magnetic filed  displacements and measure the accelorator in G then convert into other parameters through PWM to innitiate motions

Iron

if you need a breathalyzer in your phone, you already shouldn't be driving.

Iron

Pressure, flow, motion, and any other possible sensors.

Iron

acelerometros y radiofrecuencia

Good or bad breath?? B^)

Iron

intersted in military sensors and environmental sensors-Joe C

Iron

My main area of interest right now is fairly high-end accelerometers (low-noise, large dynamic range).

Iron

We're using MEMS in an ultra low power application

Iron

Is there a lot of development being done combining sensors and mechanical systems such as the "bug scenario with a flying insect and a micro-camera" I pictured earlier?

Iron
