A seminar and hands-on workshop on the future
of MEMS design
With breakout consumer products like the Apple iPad and Nintendo Wii unleashing the potential of MEMS, the industry is poised for rapid growth and expansion into areas beyond traditional MEMS applications. The opportunities are exciting, but the challenges are daunting.
Get ready to take MEMS to the next level!
Join us for a thought-provoking discussion about what lies ahead for MEMS. Hear first hand from experts about the strategies, methodologies and ecosystem that will enable a new generation of innovation.
If you are interested in enhancing the way your company designs MEMS, or just want to understand how MEMS can enable a whole new world of capabilities for IC products, then register to attend the Coventor and Cadence seminar and hands-on workshop:
Wednesday, May 18th, 2011
10am – 12:00pm and 1:00pm to 3:00pm
Cadence Design Systems, Inc
2655 Seely Ave, Building 10,
San Jose, CA 95134
The event is divided into two sections
10:00AM – NOON: (Cadence Building 10 Auditorium)
Attend a high-level executive track featuring well known semiconductor industry investor and expert Jim Hogan, as well as Coventor’s VP of Engineering Steve Breit.
MEMS on the cusp
- What are the market drivers behind the growth in MEMS?
- What are the major challenges facing companies looking to leverage this opportunity?
- What will the MEMS ecosystem of the future look like?
MEMS integration challenges
- What are the challenges to designing and integrating MEMS into densely packaged systems?
- How do you connect the traditionally separate worlds of system level design, IC implementation, and MEMS design?
- How can you achieve both simulation speed and accuracy for true co-design of MEMS and electronics?
Noon: break for lunch – complimentary for all seminar attendees
1:00PM – 3:00PM: (Cadence Building 6)
After lunch (on us!), we’ll roll up our sleeves with a hands-on workshop session on the latest MEMS design tools and methodologies. Workshop attendees will be able to simulate 3D MEMS models within the Cadence Virtuoso® Analog Design Environment. Tutorials, software, computers and expert application support are provided.
||MEMS Transducer design implementation
- Start design process with predefined Material Database and Process sequence
- Create a 3-D model using a parametric component library
- Setup model for simulation - Mechanical and Electrical boundary conditions
- Import transducer Model into Virtuoso
|2.00pm - 3:00pm
|| Coupled MEMS and Circuit Design Implementation in Virtuoso
- Run AC analysis in ADE for determining mechanical resonant modes of the device
- Run Parametric Analysis in ADE to simulate the effect of model parameters on mechanical resonant mode
- Connect transducer symbol to preexisting Force-Feedback circuit and run Transient Simulation
