Abstract

This work discusses on a novel mechanical amplification concept for micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). A single stage deflection amplifying mechanism, comprising microlevers, is implemented for a single axis in-plane capacitive accelerometer. Such a mechanism can provide a higher signal to noise ratio in a wide bandwidth with improved performance. Results from the analysis and evaluation of the fabricated prototype sensor are presented in this paper.
