Etching Process for MEMS Fabrication

The etching process used in MEMS manufacturing largely depends on the substrate material and film used to build the device. Different processes may produce the desired effect on the target material, but usually cause accidental damage to the lower layer or other areas of the device.

Due to the sensitivity of the material, customers must carefully determine which type of etching will produce the best results. In some cases, choosing one etching type over another can increase yield and provide cost advantages. For example, KOH or TMAH wet etching can sometimes be used instead of expensive dry etching.
