Mems Packaging Book Excerpt:

MEMS sensors and actuators are enabling components for smartphones, AR/VR, and wearable electronics. MEMS packaging is recognized as one of the most critical activities to design and manufacture reliable MEMS. A unique challenge to MEMS packaging is how to protect moving MEMS devices during manufacturing and operation. With the introduction of wafer level capping and encapsulation processes, this barrier is removed successfully. In addition, MEMS devices should be integrated with their electronic chips with the smallest footprint possible. As a result, 3D packaging is applied to connect the devices vertically for the most effective integration. Such 3D packaging also paves the way for further heterogenous integration of MEMS devices, electronics, and other functional devices. This book consists of chapters written by leaders developing products in a MEMS industrial setting and faculty members conducting research in an academic setting. After an introduction chapter, the practical issues are covered: through-silicon vias (TSVs), vertical interconnects, wafer level packaging, motion sensor-to-CMOS bonding, and use of printed circuit board technology to fabricate MEMS. These chapters are written by leaders developing MEMS products. Then, fundamental issues are discussed, topics including encapsulation of MEMS, heterogenous integration, microfluidics, solder bonding, localized sealing, microsprings, and reliability.

The Physics of Microdroplets Book Excerpt:

The Physics of Microdroplets gives the reader the theoretical and numerical tools to understand, explain, calculate, and predict the often nonintuitive observed behavior of droplets in microsystems. Microdrops and interfaces are now a common feature in most fluidic microsystems, from biology, to biotechnology, materials science, 3D-microelectronics, optofluidics, and mechatronics. On the other hand, the behavior of droplets and interfaces in today's microsystems is complicated and involves complex 3D geometrical considerations. From a numerical standpoint, the treatment of interfaces separating different immiscible phases is difficult. After a chapter dedicated to the general theory of wetting, this practical book successively details: The theory of 3D liquid interfaces The formulas for volume and surface of sessile and pancake droplets The behavior of sessile droplets The behavior of droplets between tapered plates and in wedges The behavior of droplets in microchannels The effect of capillarity with the analysis of capillary rise The onset of spontaneous capillary flow in open microfluidic systems The interaction between droplets, like engulfment The theory and application of electrowetting The state of the art for the approach of 3D-microelectronics using capillary alignment

Open Channel Microfluidics Book Excerpt:

Open microfluidics, the study of microflows having a boundary with surrounding air, encompasses different aspects such as paper or thread-based microfluidics, droplet microfluidics and open-channel microfluidics. Open-channel microflow is a flow at the micro-scale, guided by solid structures, and having at least a free boundary (with air or vapor) other than the advancing meniscus. This book is devoted to the study of open-channel microfluidics which (contrary to paper or thread or droplet microfluidics) is still very sparsely documented, but bears many new applications in biology, biotechnology, medicine, material and space sciences. Capillarity being the principal force triggering an open microflow, the principles of capillarity are first recalled. The onset of open-channel microflow is next analyzed and the fundamental notion of generalized Cassie angle (the apparent contact angle which accounts for the presence of air) is presented. The theory of the dynamics of open-channel microflows is then developed, using the notion of averaged friction length which accounts for the presence of air along the boundaries of the flow domain. Different channel morphologies are studied and geometrical features such as valves and capillary pumps are examined. An introduction to two-phase open-channel microflows is also presented showing that immiscible plugs can be transported by an open-channel flow. Finally, a selection of interesting applications in the domains of space, materials, medicine and biology is presented, showing the potentialities of open-channel microfluidics.

Adaptive Cooling of Integrated Circuits Using Digital Microfluidics Book Excerpt:

Thanks to increasing power consumption and component density, localized hot spots are becoming a serious challenge in IC (integrated circuit) chip design - so serious, in fact, that Intel recently had to yank a circuit because it was literally burning. For IC engineers grappling with high power dissipation and thermal issues, new droplet-based cooling techniques using digital microfluidics technology could provide the solution. This definitive guide paves the way, with design and implementation methodologies and prototypes for utilizing this groundbreaking technology. After reviewing cooling principles and current bulk cooling methods, the book brings engineers up to speed on emerging droplet-based architectures. Amply illustrated, this milestone work will prove invaluable in tackling IC heat issues that existing methods can no longer address.
