  • Patent number: 7637158
    Abstract: A resonant structure for a micromechanical device includes a crystalline silicon beam and at least one mass attached to the beam. An excitation plane of the resonant structure is defined by the predominant motion of the excited resonant structure. The beam includes crystal axes aligned such that none of the crystal axes are parallel to the length of the beam and/or none of the crystal axes are normal to the excitation plane.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20080164546
    Abstract: A micro-electromechanical device comprises a micro-electromechanical die, a package, and three pillars attaching the micro-electromechanical die to the package, at least one of the shape, position and orientation of the pillars is configured such that any strain transferred from the package to the die by deformation of the package is minimized.

  • Publication number: 20070111363
    Abstract: A resonant structure for a micromechanical device includes a beam and at least one mass attached to the beam. The resonant structure is arranged to have a predominantly rotational excitation mode and an excitation plane in which motion of the excited resonant structure predominantly takes place, the at least one mass including a geometry such that none of the principal axes of the rotational inertia tensor of the resonant structure are normal to the excitation plane.
