MEMS LAB

Microelectromechanical systems are the technology of microscopic devices, particularly those with moving parts. It merges at the nano-scale into nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS) and nanotechnology. MEMS are also referred to as micromachines in Japan, or micro systems technology (MST) in Europe.


MEMS are made up of components between 1 and 100 micrometres in size and MEMS devices generally range in size from 20 micrometres to a millimeter, although components arranged in arrays (e.g., Digital micromirror devices) can be more than 1000mm2. They usually consist of a central unit that processes data (the microprocessor) and several components that interact with the surroundings such as microsensors.

Inauguration of MEMS LAB was conducted on 26.11.2016 by the well know personalities Padmavibhushana Dr. vasudev K aatre (Former DG-DRDO & scientific advisor, Defence Ministry of India) ,Dr. Prakash D Mangalgiri (Group director ADA Bangalore), Dr. M Mohan Alva(chairmen), Sri Vivek Alva(managing trustee), Dr. Peter Fernandies(principal), Dr. D V Manjunatha(HOD, E&CE Dept.) &Sri. Praveen J (Dean academics),
