MEMS (an acronym for MicroElectroMechanical Systems) technology uses semiconductor industry techniques to create micron scale machines incorporating both mechanical and electronic components. The staff of CardioMEMS, Inc. includes pioneers in the development of non-silicon MEMS techniques. Many of the techniques utilized in the design and manufacture of CardioMEMS sensors have been developed only in the past five years. The sensors have been designed for ultra-reliable operation and prolonged stability and durability.
A key circuit element of the sensor is a capacitor composed of two conducting plates separated by an air gap. The plates are electrically interfaced with an inductor/antenna. This circuit has a known resonant frequency. Pressure changes alter the distance between capacitor plates which changes the resonant frequency. An electronic monitoring device detects this change in the sensor's resonant frequency and converts it into a pressure change. The wireless radiofrequency (RF) technology in the monitoring device is proprietary.
This family of implantable wireless pressure sensors represents multiple technology breakthroughs. CardioMEMS, Inc. is the first company to realize the use of this technology to wirelessly gather information from within the human body.
