Abstract
This paper presents a comparative analysis between two specific post-processing techniques (RIE dry etching and TMAH wet etching) that are suitable for implementing a monolithic CMOS compatible MEMS fabrication technology. Further, an experimental investigation is presented which details the fabrication of MEMS structures by TMAH post etching of a CMOS chip fabricated in a standard AMI 1.5 micrometers CMOS process. Finally this paper provides future designers with experimental data that will allow for the design and fabrication of simple MEMS structures using a standard CMOS process.
