The use of high voltages (>100 volts) in MEMS-based resonators presents a pathway towards achieving low motional resistances while maintaining excellent linearity, as would be required, for example, in a MEMS-based power amplifier. This research demonstrates the feasibility of creating MEMS resonators which can withstand such voltages without succumbing to electrical pull-in, focusing on careful device design informed by FEM simulation.
