Coventor’s Director of European Operations Gerold Schröpfer was recently interviewed on the topic of energy harvesting for a newsletter produced by the European Metrology Research Programme.
What does Coventor do?
Coventor develops and supplies software tools that can be used for the design of micro electromechanical systems (MEMS) and the modelling of semiconductor and MEMS manufacturing processes. The modelling of MEMS energy harvesters is a small but growing area of our business.
Our products enable the co-design and co-simulation of a harvesting device and a conditioning circuit together. It allows users to play around with the both the harvester design parameters and circuit parameters in order to optimise device performance before committing to time-consuming and costly build-and-test cycles. The design can also be checked for high stress areas that may lead to breakage when the device is overloaded.
