A microcontroller based technique for measuring the transmissibility of a MEMS device is very useful and meaningful. The resulting data can provide feedback to improve the design, modeling and fabrication process. A new method for measuring the transmissibility has been investigated using a microcontroller where the results are displayed on a personal computer real time. The microcontroller used in the research is the Stm32f407. The purpose of the application is proposed and the practicability is investigated as well. A cantilevered structure and three materials are chosen to verify the technique. The cost for the implementation is estimated and found to be low. The resulting technique can be used in research to process the transmissibility data real time and analyze the data for future applications.
