Image Number 4 for United States Patent #8105498.
A method for fabricating micromachined structures is provided. A structure including a dielectric layer, a metal layer and a passivation layer is formed, wherein the dielectric layer has a via thereon. An etching window is formed on the passivation layer. An etching solution is poured into the via through the etching window to perform a process of etching. After etching, the etching solution is removed and the passivation layer is removed. Finally, the structure is etched again to form the micromachined structure.
