Paper Abstract

Micromachined accelerometers are one of the most widely used MEMS transducers. The theory of force-balance MEMS accelerometers is presented in the thesis. Meanwhile the paper accomplishes the system-level simulation and analysis of the force-balance MEMS accelerometer with different structure parameters. Based on the analysis, the conclusion is that the parameters of folded-spring (such as the length of the beam, the width of the beam) especially influence the output sensitivity.
