This talk describes the design and characterisation of a new generation of fully CMOS compatible novel micro-heater for high temperature gas sensors. The micro-heaters employ advanced MOSFET heaters embedded in an SOI membrane. The micro-heaters are required to heat up the sensing material, so that it can reacts with the gas molecules effectively. The heaters can operate at a ground-breaking high temperature of 550°C for an ultra-low power consumption of 16 mW (continuous operation) and have a thermal rise time of below 10 ms. The yield of the micro-hotplates after deep RIE back-etching was close to 90% while the residual stress was found to be minimal, resulting in flat and stable membranes. Electronic circuits for drive and readout have also been designed and integrated with the micro-hotplates to create a smart gas sensor.
