A method is introduced to design compliant micro transmission mechanisms which double the motion frequency of a cyclic input motion. Compliant embodiments are generated based on exploiting the singularity in a double-slider mechanism, which provides building blocks with a frequency-multiplication factor of two. It is shown that the proposed building blocks can be concatenated for higher frequency-multiplication ratios. To validate the building block approach, a compliant micro transmission mechanism is presented which quadruples the frequency of a cyclic rectilinear input motion.
