Discrete MEMS accelerometers is now a mature market. New player mCube, mainly active on Chinese market, tries to gain market share with new technologies allowing very low manufacturing cost.

mCube 3D MEMS process consists in MEMS elements monolithically fabricated on top of the drive IC and connected using thru-silicon-vias. To protect the MEMS elements, a cap is sealed with an eutectic alloy bonding process.

The mCube accelerometer is assembled in a standard LGA2x2mm package.

This report will provides a complete teardown of the MEMS accelerometer with:
