Software Streamlines 3D Semiconductor Design

MicwaveRFlogoThe latest version of this semiconductor-process modeling software boosts speed, accuracy, and capabilities all in a simpler, easier-to-use package.
Jack Browne | Microwaves and RF

Use of three-dimensional (3D) semiconductor structures has become commonplace within many markets, and in turn, semiconductor-process technologies continue to advance in support of higher-speed, more-dense active devices. For example, Coventor stays at the forefront with new and updated tools that predict the performance of different 3D semiconductor designs.

Case in point is the company’s fifth generation of its process simulation software, SEMulator3D 5.0. The software not only adds features for new process capabilities, but also simplifies the learning process for using the software. It’s a powerful simulation platform for predicting the effects of different process parameters on semiconductor and microelectomechanical-systems (MEMS) devices.

Collaboration Brings Fast Analysis to Acoustic Resonator Design

By Mattan Kamon

After some lively conversations with the top researchers in MEMS acoustic resonators during the 2014 Sensors and Actuators Workshop (familiarly known to the MEMS community as “Hilton Head”) we were motivated to develop a simulation solution that would better serve these researchers as well as commercial designers. With the recent release of CoventorWare 10, we introduced a new fast analysis capability for acoustic resonators that is unique in the industry and I’m excited to blog about it here.

When it comes to wearable technology and the rapidly emerging world of IoT, sensors and MEMS are on the frontlines. They collect and transfer raw data such as pressure, temperature and motion and process it with algorithms critical to making sure the right information gets to humans and/or machines so the right reaction is enabled. In less than a decade, there is expected to be approximately 1 trillion sensors deployed worldwide – yet the MEMS market is fragmented and there is as yet no standard process in place for MEMS development. Change is needed; a standard approach for MEMS design and manufacturing needs to evolve in order to sustain the massive growth prospects ahead.

The significance of MEMS has not gone unnoticed, especially by Chinese companies who are eager to jump into this rapidly growing market. At the intersection of MEMS and China sits a company called SITRI, who is announcing a partnership with MEMS tool leader, Coventor.
