A laterally-driven inertial micro-switch was designed and fabricated using surface
micromachining technology. The dynamic response process was simulated by ANSYS software, which revealed the vibration process of movable electrode when the proof mass is shocked by acceleration in sensitive direction. The test results of fabricated inertial micro-switches with and without anti-shock beams indicated that the contact process of micro-switch with anti-shock beams is more reliable than the one without anti-shock beams. The test results indicated that three contact signals had been observed in the contact process of the inertial switch without anti-shock beams, and only one contact signal in the inertial switch with anti-shock beams, which demonstrated that the anti-shock beams can effectively constrain the vibration in non-sensitive direction.
