MicroelectroMechanical System

 

(microelectromechanical Systems) Tiny mechanical devices that are built onto semiconductor chips and are measured in micrometers. In the research labs since the 1980s, MEMS devices began to materialize as commercial products in the mid-1990s. They are used to make pressure, temperature, chemical and vibration sensors, light reflectors and switches as well as accelerometers for airbags, vehicle control, pacemakers and games. The technology is also used to make inkjet print heads, microactuators for read/write heads and all-optical switches that reflect light beams to the appropriate output port.

Microelectromechanical systems. A term primarily used in the United States, it refers to machines with moving parts smaller than a human hair that contain both electrical and mechanical components on silicon. Also referred to as Microsystems, microstructures, microstructure technology (MST) and mechatronics.
