Abstract

In this paper, we present a remotely adjustable check-valve array with an electrochemical release mechanism for implantable biomedical microsystems. A SU-8 polymer layer deposited on the top of a gold sacrificial layer was used as the valve structural material. A constant DC current obtained via a telemetry link was used to electrochemically dissolve the gold sacrificial layer and activate the valves. 3×3 and 4×4 arrays each containing three different size valves (50×50, 100×100 and 200×200 μm2) were fabricated and tested. A current density of 35 mA/cm2 resulted in the dissolution of a 3000Å gold sacrificial layer in 30 seconds with the final release completed in 1-2 minutes.
