Abstract: In this paper, we study the behaviour of a MEMS oscillator by applying methods of nonlinear dynamics. We model the system as a kicked damped oscillator and obtain the iterative maps that describe the MEMS system. The dynamics of the maps are studied numerically: we present a study of limit cycles and their rotation numbers and show how the control parameters and initial conditions may affect the output frequencies.
