This paper reports the design, fabrication process, and testing results of Parylene surface-micromachined membranes with integrated strain gauges or thermal resistors made of thin film metals. The membrane is suspended above the substrate. This paper demonstrates the feasibility of sensor applications with a force (tactile) sensor and a fluid shear stress sensor.
