Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

A novel design of a MEMS DC/DC converter that has single input and two outputs based on the tunable capacitor principle is reported. The multiple-output has been achieved by designing comb finger pairs with different gaps located in the same structure. The device prototype has been designed and fabricated by SOIMUMPs, which is 1 times 1 mm in size. Measurement results show that it takes around 50 ms for the converter to convert a 5 V signal to two different voltages simultaneously, which are 9 and 6.8 V, respectively.
