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.
