Silicon Run’s film MEMS: MAKING MICRO MACHINES is an overview of the manufacture and design of microelectromechanical systems. This film shows the fabrication, testing and packaging, and design of some of our most common MEMS devices. This film also features the fabrication of Hewlett-Packard’s thermal inkjet printhead and covers the testing and packaging of Texas Instrument’s digital micromirror devices. At Freescale Semiconductor, we delve into the design process with a look at the creation of sensors.
