Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) include critical devices for various highly sensitive applications. However, MEMS operation may be impaired by vibration. A modular vibration control pedestal for integration with a MEMS is provided according to embodiments of the present invention which includes a piezoelectric perovskite oxide disposed on a substrate and a shape memory alloy component component disposed on the piezoelectric perovskite oxide. In particular embodiments of a MEMS device including a modular VCP, vibration is reduced by at least 50%.
