A new platform for micro- and nano-electromechanical systems based on crystalline silicon as the structural layer in CMOS substrates is presented. This platform is fabricated using silicon on insulator (SOI) substrates, which allows the monolithic integration of the mechanical transducer on crystalline silicon while the characteristics of the structural layer are kept independent from the CMOS technology. We report the design characteristics, the fabrication process and an example of application of the CMOS SOI-MEMS platform to obtain a mass sensor based on a crystalline silicon resonating cantilever. © 2006 IOP Publishing Ltd.
