Sample text

As piezo-transistor area can be more than 1,000 times smaller than typical piezoresistor area, it immediately opens an opportunity to scale down the size of the sensor mechanical microstructure and springs, beams and other types of suspensions in particular. Figure 6 illustrates how the size of the beam connected to the frame in piezoresistive sensors can be decreased by switching to piezotransistors, as stress sensitive components. In typical layout of the piezoresistors, shown in Figure 6a, for a half-bridge circuit one of the p-type resistors should be longitudinal and another is transversal.

Therefore, it seams that MEMS surface micro-machined capacitors cannot be significantly scaled down in size, as well as capacitive MEMS sensors. The second serious challenge of scaling capacitive sensors is that it is not easy to make a big proof mass due to the nature of surface micromachining. The device layer is thin and the mass of the device micro-structure is determined by the area occupied by the microstructure at the surface of the die, which one wants to scale down. Of course, some new technological opportunities like SiGe films, which can be deposited at low temperature on the top of already fabricated CMOS circuit and which can be used as a structural material of the capacitive micro-structures, could make for some time less critical the issue of scaling down the size of capacitive sensors, while the other issues including complexity of the structure, small mass and the economy of this integration will still remain [4].
