MEMS & NEMS Packaging

1. General Description using metallized through silicon vias (TSV)

Today micro and nano systems could be performed.
(MEMS/NEMS) are integrated in almost every
high tech or smart product. Miniaturized
acceleration sensors help to prevent injuries
during accidents or even prevent accidents by
car. Other MEMS devices help to monitor
medical parameters, allow low cost
telecommunication, print crystal sharp colour
images and so on. While the devices
themselves have matured significantly over the
last decade to become commonplace
products, packaging of these tiny sensitive
components and systems has not been
addressed thoroughly. Hence the packaging
