  • Publication number: 20160257559
    Abstract: A method for fabricating a MEMS sensor device. The method can include providing a substrate, forming an IC layer overlying the substrate, forming an oxide layer overlying the IC layer, forming a metal layer coupled to the IC layer through the oxide layer, forming a MEMS layer having a pair of designated sense electrode portions and a designated proof mass portion overlying the oxide layer, forming a via structure within each of the designated sense electrode portions, and etching the MEMS layer to form a pair of sense electrodes and a proof mass from the designated sense electrode portions and proof mass portions, respectively. The via structure can include a ground post and the proof mass can include a sense comb. The MEMS sensor device formed using this method can result is more well-defined edges of the proof mass structure.
