Patents by Inventor Jeff Chunchieh Huang

Jeff Chunchieh Huang has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10773951
    Abstract: An apparatus includes a MEMS wafer with a device layer and a handle substrate bonded to the device layer. The apparatus also includes a CMOS wafer including an oxide layer, and a passivation layer overlying the oxide layer. A bonding electrode overlies the passivation layer and a bump stop electrode overlies the passivation layer. A eutectic bond is between a first bonding metal on the bonding electrode and a second bonding metal on the MEMS wafer. A sensing electrode is positioned adjacent to the bump stop electrode and the bonding electrode. A sensing gap is positioned between the sensing electrode and the device layer, wherein the sensing gap is greater than a bump stop gap positioned between the bump stop electrode and the device layer.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20190330052
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided that provide a getter in a micromechanical system. In some embodiments, a microelectromechanical system (MEMS) is bonded to a substrate. The MEMS and the substrate have a first cavity and a second cavity therebetween. A first getter is provided on the substrate in the first cavity and integrated with an electrode. A second getter is provided in the first cavity over a passivation layer on the substrate. In some embodiments, the first cavity is a gyroscope cavity, and the second cavity is an accelerometer cavity.
