This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of MEMS inertial sensors that are integrated with foundry electronics. A brief summary of micro-accelerometer and gyroscope applications and operation is presented, followed by descriptions of inertial sensors catalogued by the type of structural material. Integrated sensors include those made with structural layers of polysilicon, CMOS metal-dielectric stacks, plated metal and bulk silicon.
