Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are the integration of mechanical elements, sensors, actuators, and electronics on a substrate through micro fabrication technology. Microelectromechanical systems utilize micromachining techniques (i.e., lithographic and other precision fabrication techniques) to reduce mechanical components to a scale that is generally comparable to microelectronics. There are many MEMS devices, including accelerometers, gyroscopes, temperature sensors, chemical sensors, micro-lenses, comb drive actuators, piezoelectric actuators, blood analysis chips, resonators, genetic analysis chips, adaptive optics, arrayed fiber optic switch chips, automotive engine analysis sensor suites, and micro satellite components. Microelectromechanical systems are typically actuated in a manner where the direction of the load forces are substantially collinear with the motion of the actuator. MEMS switches use electrostatic actuation to create movement of a beam or membrane that results in an ohmic contac or in a change in capacitance, by which the flow of the RF signal is interrupted. Microelectromechanical system sensors gather information from the environment through measuring mechanical, thermal, biological, chemical, optical, and magnetic phenomena. Microelectromechanical devices are useful in many applications.
