Abstract: This paper presents a new MEMS experimental device with integrated temperature sensors. Conventional silicon planar techniques for the fabrication of microelectronic sensors have been used to realize a particular layout, which does not limit the material of the microstructures it can be used with. The study of rarefied gases has been chosen as case study for the validation of the local measuring system. In this work the attention will be focused on the description of the sensor functioning principles and on the presentation of the preliminary results obtained during the calibration procedures. The tests showed promising results for a future development of the sensor design.
