Abstract
With recent developments in micromachining technology, fabrication of discrete microdevices is maturing; consequently, system integration is becoming an ever more important issue. One obstacle to such systems is the diverse power requirements of microdevices, especially actuators. Since some types of actuators exhibit relatively high voltage or power requirements, it is not feasible to integrate power supplies on-chip, and it is often inconvenient for the MEMS system to be tethered to interconnects for purposes of supplying power. On-chip wireless power sources can be implemented to circumvent this problem.
