This work presents a novel design of an ultra-small Wankel engine. With a device size of mm range and required power of mW, the rotation speed is theoretically calculated up to thousands of rpm. The PDMS MEMS process has been employed to make the Wankel engine planar and tiny. How to selecting the proper materials heterogeneously in the design stage of this engine is demonstrated herein.
