An ac root-mean-square (RMS) voltage reference based on a microelectromechanical system (MEMS) component is presented. The device stability is investigated in various experiments. A time stability at a level of a few μV/V in 24 h was measured using an accelerometer MEMS component at an operating frequency of 100 kHz.
