Abstract

We describe an analog CMOS VLSI system that can process real-time signals from integrated shear stress sensors to detect regions of high shear stress along a surface in an airflow. The outputs of the CMOS circuit control the actuation of integrated micromachined flaps with the goal of reducing this high shear stress on the surface and thereby lowering the total drag. We have designed, fabricated, and tested components of this system in a wind tunnel in both laminar and turbulent flow regimes with the goal of building a wafer-scale system.
