SoftMEMS and Tanner EDA to offer live seminar focused exclusively on MEMS-IC co-design
MONROVIA, California – May 1, 2013 – Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), and SoftMEMS will address key design challenges in MEMS-IC co-design in an afternoon seminar in Bridgewater, NJ, on May 16th, 2013.
Systems incorporating MEMS devices are growing in their level of integration and complexity, often including multiple MEMS sensors/actuators, analog and digital circuitry, micro-controllers, sensor fusion software and custom packaging. Many of the delays in bringing MEMS-based systems to market stem from errors made in integrating the MEMS with the electronics, causing costly re-designs and missed market windows. Co-design tools enable designers to catch composition errors early and also to optimize the entire system, trading off requirements between the MEMS and electronics. The result is shortened time-to-market, higher product performance and lower manufacturing costs.
In this live session, Mary Ann Maher, CEO of SoftMEMS, will discuss how SoftMEMS CAD tools coupled with analog and digital design tools from Tanner EDA can be used to co-design MEMS devices, their associated electronics and packaging in commercial MEMS systems. Examples will be given of important co-design issues such as how to visualize MEMS devices in 3D from mask layout and fabrication step descriptions, how to co-simulate electronics and MEMS to calculate system timing, and how to model and evaluate the thermal, mechanical and electrical performance of newpackaging concepts.

Wednesday, May 16th, 2013 from 2:00-4:00pm
