MEMS System Design with ARCHITECT3D
Design engineers can efficiently simulate complex MEMS devices and MEMS-based systems, including inertial sensors, RF switches, resonators and oscillators, and optical mirrors with the CoventorWare ARCHITECT3D product. ARCHITECT3D goes way beyond the limitations of simple SPICE-based models and macro-models derived from FEA.
ARCHITECT software simulates physical effects in different engineering domains (hydraulic, electronic, mechanical, thermal, etc.) as well as signal-flow algorithms and software control. The simulator of ARCHITECT is Saber which is used in the automotive, aerospace, power and IC industries to simulate and analyze systems, sub-systems and components under a variety of different operational and environmental conditions. This dramatically improves design reliability while reducing the need for physical prototypes. The ARCHITECT software product contains many components that are needed for efficient and cost effective MEMS product development.
