Survey of MEMS and Micro-Actuator Technologies for Future Spacecraft Missions
The development of spacecraft technology has historically resulted in an abundance of commercial spin-offs. Ironically, future spacecraft may rely on many technologies now under development for commercial markets. The medical, automotive, robotics, and instrumentation markets have stimulated great advances in the field of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). Commercial MEMS products today include chemical sensors, acceleration and pressure transducers, and micro valves. In fact, many of these MEMS devices are so small that they are best observed with the aid of a microscope. The presentation covers recent MEMS micro-actuator developments, their method of operation, design limitations, comparative performance, and their potential spacecraft applications.

SMAWG is an independent MEMS professional organization welcoming participants from academia, industry, and government. Our objective is to create a forum for discussion of MEMS and related technology, and to benefit from the MEMS collaborations which will inevitably result. The SMAWG format is loosely modeled on the successful Bay Area MEMS Journal Club in Northern California. The motivation behind that format is to foster interactive MEMS discussion sessions rather than a formal seminar series.

MEMS design rules have been defined, available to designers upon signature of a Confidentiality and Licence Agreement (CLA). A CADENCE OPUS design kit is available to allow the generation of the layout including electronic and non-electronic parts. The kit includes an extended DRC and an extended parameter extractor (from layout to netlist) distinguishing electronic and non-electronic parts. A netlist is generated allowing an electrical simulation where MEMS bridges, cantilevers and membranes are considered as a resistance, and a behavioural simulation where these structures are represented by a model in the language HDLA/ELDO from ANACAD. Other CMOS processes, surface micromachining, GaAs processes, LIGA, Quartz micromachining will be introduced gradually.

Applied Microengineering Ltd
AML is an Independent, Industrial Commercial organisation, dedicated to Microengineering. Microengineering, sometimes referred to as Micromachining, Microsystems (MST), MicroElectroMechanical Systems (MEMS) is defined by AML as a technology using Silicon wafers, as the unit of production and base material, processed by a variety of microelectronic (and other) wafer, batch, techniques to produce identical millimetre sized devices with micron sized features, accurately and at low cost. AML's mission is to help Industry exploit Microengineering. This is achieved via the design, development, productionisation and manufacture of microengineered products (currently mainly sensors) on behalf of Industry. Microengineering enables the realisation of mechanical and electrical devices with smaller size, higher performance & lower unit costs.
