When you think about it, MEMS layout is one of the most cumbersome parts of the design process, involving countless revisions, incompatible data formats and minute details. The challenges of MEMS layout are compounded further by the fact that most tools available are IC layout tools, or less- appropriately, architectural design tools.
Blueprint is a layout tool designed specifically for the MEMS community. Our goal with Blueprint was to revisit the workflow of the layout engineer and create a tool that would be effortless to learn and use.
Our design philosophy for Blueprint is: "simple things should be simple, complex things should be possible." That's why our product provides configurable palettes that you can drag and customize to your needs; clearly illustrated icons; and configurable grids and guides - all of which make device layout easier than ever.
Automatically link masks created in Blueprint to process steps for creating 3D visualization of your device. Blueprint users can also now link the layout with automatic mesh creation and refinement for device-level analysis!
