Microelectromechanical Systems (MEMS) are micron-size devices that can sense or manipulate the physical world. MEMS are created using micro machining processes, similar to those used to produce integrated circuit IC devices. This allows a two- or three-dimensional mechanical system to be created in the same small area typical of an IC device. Because the fab process is similar to that of IC fabrication, MEMS are most typically created on silicon wafers but can also employ other substrate types as well. Due to their size, tens of thousands of these devices can be fabricated on a single wafer.
