A MEMS Condenser Microphone for Consumer Applications

S. L. Pinjare, V. S. Nagaraj, S. N. Savitha, S. Kesari, M. S. Sagar, and K. R. Roshan
Nitte Meenakshi Institute of Technology

The MEMS microphone is also called microphone chip or silicon microphone. The pressure sensitive diaphragm is etched directly into a silicon chip by MEMS techniques and is usually accompanied with integrated preamplifier. Most MEMS microphones are variants of the condenser microphone design. The MEMS microphone has been successfully fabricated and tested in an anechoic chamber. The microphone ...

Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering
Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati
Assam, India

In this paper, we present study on the mass loading effect of the interdigital transducer (IDT) on surface acoustic wave (SAW) velocity in SAW devices, using COMSOL Multiphysics. We have simulated a one port SAW resonator made on YZ lithium niobate substrate and investigated the reduction of SAW velocity caused by the mass loading of aluminum IDT fabricated over the substrate, using finite ...

Jadavpur University
Kolkata
West Bengal, India

This paper presents a novel design of single-bit RF MEMS phase shifter. The basic novelty introduced for phase shifter design in this case, is by scaling down of the lateral dimensions of the conventional RF MEMS shunt switch by 10 times. The Mechanical and Electromechanical analysis of the designed miniature RF MEMS fixed-fixed beam is performed using COMSOL Multiphysics v.3.5a as an FEM ...

Effect of Bed Diffusion and Operating Parameters on Char Combustion in the Context of Underground Coal Gasification

S. Mahajani, and G. Samdani
Indian Institute of Technology Bombay
Mumbai, India

Char combustion is one of the most important reactions in the process of Underground Coal Gasification (UCG). Experiments are performed in a boat reactor under near isothermal condition to demonstrate effects of heat and mass transfer and bed diffusion through ash layer. To obtain a complete overview of boat experiments and to further get insights, CFD analysis of boat reactor is performed using ...

Microelectronics and MEMS Lab
Department of Electrical Engineering
Indian Institute of technology Madras
Chennai, India

A MEMS based Knudsen’s pressure gauge working in the range of 1e-5 mbar to 10 mbar is designed and simulated in COMSOL. The working principle is based on Knudsen’s forces that arise when two plates are held at different temperatures and their separation is comparable to the mean free path of the ambient gas molecules. The forces change the separation between the plates and capacitance between ...
