As MEMS technology matures as an industry, the integration of standard integrated circuit and MEMS devices will continue to increase. Presented is a brief overview the work that others have done to solve these problems using hybrid, monolithic, or bonding techniques. Also presented will be some of the problems that need to be overcome in having both processes on the same substrate, such as avoiding any contamination of the MOS circuit by normal MEMS processing steps. Previous work at the University of Minnesota Microtechnology Laboratory has demonstrated NMOS/CMOS or MEMS devices using the MTL facility. In this work we present simulation and test results, along with a proposed process that includes CMOS and MEMS devices on the substrate.
