This paper reports the fabrication of Silicon membrane in a simple and cost effective manner by frontend bulk micromachining process, which is one of the proven techniques of making suspended microstructures. In the proposed mask design, to be used as pixel for Microbolometer application, all the rectangular openings are aligned at 45⁰ with respect to the wafer primary flat (100) Silicon wafer, such that only <100> planes are exposed and etched during anisotropic etching. The proposed fabrication techniques are very simple and cost-effective, as it used only a single mask for realizing the membrane structure. All process steps were initially simulated using Intellisuite FABSIM based physical simulator and later entire individual process steps are experimentally verified. Both simulation and experimental result shows very good agreement on all process steps.
