  • Contact materials for microrelays

    The design of a microrelay actuator has to be based on the characteristic data of the contact material used. These data were determined experimentally at Au, AuNi5 and Rh switching electric contacts. The samples were cleaned with good result using the "Schaltreinigung" procedure. A new precision measurement technique was developed that enables investigations of electric contacts at contact forces varying continuously in the range from 0.1 mN to more than 10 mN. It was found that AuNi5 and Rh are contact materials well suited for microrelays, whereas Au is not appropriate due to its high adherence. Stable contact and reliable opening are provided by forces altogether as low as 0.6 mN. The experimental data were used successfully in dimensioning the moving wedge actuator used in silicon microrelays.

    The purpose of this paper is to present the analysis of electrostatic actuated microrelay with four terminals, single-pole, single-throw, and normally-open device with bridge contact (SPST-NO-Bridge) via simple analytical modeling and Finite Element Method (FEM). The behavior of the device has been simulated using electrostatic, mechanical and dynamic analysis. The results obtained by FEM and analytical analysis are in good agreement. Through optimization process of the physical structure, the total size of the device (without bondpads) is about 220 x 220 ¿m2, which is suitable for high integration circuitry. The results shows that minimum switching voltage is 17V with operating voltage of 24V and the device can go up to 2 KHz of switching frequency.

The collision effect is introduced according to the characteristics of micro electromagnetic relay to improve mathematical model. The simulation analysis indciated that the improved mathematical model is more suitable to the actual working satuts.

  • Novel electrothermally actuated magnetostatic bistable microrelay for telecommunication applications

    A new energy efficient latching micro relay is presented. Its design and production process allows a subsequent industrial realization. Concerning its large contact travel (100 μm) and large contact force (12.4 mN) corresponding to a low contact resistance (33.8 mOhm for gold/gold contacts), the micro relay is well suited for matrices in telecommunication applications. The MEMS relay (3.6 × 5.8 × 0.25 mm3) is produced using a surface micromachining process with AZ 9260, AZ nXT 125 and SU-8 2025 UV lithography and micro electroplating of copper and nickel. The integration of the electrical path and the magnetostatic bistable mechanism enables fast switching (<; 8 ms), although the actuation is performed by electrothermal actuators.

  • High frequency threshold improvement of electro-static micro-relays

    This paper describes one of the ways of building micromechanical threshold transducers based on unique dielectric and mechanic properties of anodic alumina Functional components of such transducers carry thin-film conductive elements formed by vacuum evaporation and are formed with precise accuracy offered by methods of planar microelectronic technology. All structural elements of the transducers are fabricated in a single monolithic substrate, which greatly reduces errors and complexity of assembly work. The possibility is demonstrated of making micromechanical threshold transducers with universal design of converter element of anodic alumina, which ensures high sensitivity to variations in geometric size, acting force, acceleration, and temperature.

  • Optical fibre alignment using micromachines

    This paper discusses the use of micromachined actuators for aligning optical fibres. A number of test actuators including comb structures, magnetic fluid positioners, piezoelectric fibre positioners and electrostatic micro-relays have been designed. Some of these structures were post-processed using the anisotropic etchants EDP and TMAH. Experiments with etchants revealed that multilayer aluminum/polysilicon structures are required to maintain structural integrity and minimize the effect of internal stresses. In addition, SiO/sub 2/ can be used to protect other process layers from the etching process.

  • Safe levels of silicone contamination for electrical contact

    The effect of silicone vapour concentration on the contact failure was examined by using micro relays and motor brush-slip ring (commutator) contacts. A minimum limiting concentration level which does not affect contact reliability was found. This limiting level was 10 ppm (0.13 mg/1). Validity of the limiting level was confirmed by the relationships among concentration, temperature, SiO/sub 2/ film thickness and contact resistance. Furthermore, the effect of the degree of silicone polymerization on the limiting concentration was derived by an empirical formula. These results were confirmed by the contact failure data due to the silicone contamination.

  • MEM relay for reconfigurable RF circuits

    We describe a microelectromechanical (MEM) relay technology for high- performance reconfigurable RF circuits. This microrelay, fabricated using surface micromachining, is a metal contact relay with electrical isolation between signal and drive lines. This relay provides excellent switching performance over a broad frequency band (insertion loss of 0.1 dB and isolation of 30 dB at 40 GHz), versatility in switch circuit configurations (microstrip and coplanar, shunt and series), and the capability for monolithic integration with high-frequency electronics. In addition, this MEM relay technology has demonstrated yields and lifetimes that are promising for RF circuit implementation.
