Micromachine technology


A generic term for technologies relating to micromachines.

Micromachine-related technologies are extremely diversified. In the fundamental technology field, micromachine technologies include: design, material, processing, functional element, system control, energy supply, bonding and assembly, electrical circuit, and evaluation as well as micro-science and engineering such as thermodynamics and tribology in a micro-scale. Micromachine technologies have two aspects: technologies required to realize micromachines, and technologies required to apply such technical seeds to other industrial fields.
