Image Introduction to Actuators
This learning module is one of three SCME modules that discuss the types of components found in microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). This module covers "actuators" - what they are, how they work, and how they are used in both macro and micro-sized systems. An activity provides further exploration into specific actuators and how they are used in everyday devices. Two related learning modules cover macro and micro-sized sensors and transducers.
