MEMS Controller

Overview

MEMS are made up of components between 1 to 100 micrometers in size and MEMS devices generally range in size from 20 micrometers to 1 millimeter. They usually consist of a central data processing unit, a microprocessor and several components that interact with the outside, such as micro sensors. MEMS have many applications: (1) inkjet printers, which use piezo-electrics or thermal bubble ejection to deposit ink on paper; (2) accelerometers, used for a large number of purposes in modern cars, including airbag deployment in collisions; (3) accelerometers in consumer electronics devices such as game controllers, personal media players, cell phones, and a number of digital still cameras; (4) PCs, to park the hard disk head if free-fall is detected, in order to prevent damage and data loss.

NVM Silicon IPs for MEMS Controllers

NeoBit and NeoEE can be used to record the sensor parameters of MEMS chips at CP, FT or system adjustment stage, to record values for circuit properties and to trim sensor and circuit resolution at both CP and FT stages.
