A method of making an integrated, microminiature, electric-to-fluidic valve. The method comprises, in one embodiment, anisotropically etching a cavity in a silicon wafer to form a thin membrane at the bottom of a trench. Then a second wafer is etched to form an exit path surrounded by a valve seat p ...
