Paper Abstract

As the design of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) devices matures and their application extends to critical areas, the issues of reliability and long-term survivability become increasingly important. This paper reviews some general approaches to addressing the reliability and qualification of MEMS devices for space applications. The failure modes associated with different types of MEMS devices that are likely to occur, not only under normal terrestrial operations, but also those that are encountered in the harsh environments of space, will be identified.
