Micro-hotplate (MHP) is a microheater fabricated with integrated circuit (IC) technology and micromachining on silicon substrate. Because of low power consumption, fast thermal response, and ability of integrating with ICs, the MHP is a very useful device to develop microsensors and biochips, and to study heat transfer in microscale. The state-of-the art in MHP and future directions are reviewed in this paper.
