In order to integrate MEM devices with CMOS circuits, compatibility of materials, micron scale mechanical structures, and the fabrication technology with CMOS is imperative. This paper describes the design of a micron scale pressure sensor array with multi-range and multi-function using ANSYS 5.7. The polysilicon sensor array rests atop multi-layer diaphragms. The specific configuration, the dynamic range, and the performance of individual sensors and the array as a whole are simulated. The resulting sensor array will be integrated with CMOS circuits.
