MEMSIC Introduces World’s Smallest and Most Robust Digital Accelerometer With Features Never Before Available at This Price- Point

MEMSIC Inc.a leading provider of MEMS devices and sensor- based systems has announced the availability of its MXC6226XC MEMS two-axis digital accelerometer, the world’s smallest, fully-integrated MEMS accelerometer. Based on MEMSIC’s patented MEMS thermal technology, it is manufactured using a standard 0.18um CMOS process and advanced wafer- level packaging (WLP). The resulting device demonstrates MEMSIC’s leadership in providing state-of-the-art motion sensing functions at a price- point never before available to designers of cost sensitive systems like cell phones, toys, games, cameras and appliances. The MXC6226XC accelerometer provides superior performance and functionality to designers who have previously not been able to consider motion sensing for their products. MEMSIC’s MXC6226XC enables designers to significantly enhance the value of their product. It also serves as a high value-added replacement to designs employing mechanical switches, which are much less reliable and less capable.

MEMS+ 2.1 Release Now Available

Coventor has just released MEMS+ 2.1 for MATLAB Simulink and Cadence. MEMS+ 2.1 is a full update of MEMS+ 2.0 that includes a new MATLAB scripting interface. The new MATLAB scripting interface makes it possible to run simulations on a MEMS+ design directly from MATLAB, without involving Simulink. If you are a current MEMS+ customer you can download MEMS+ 2.1 from http://www.coventor.com/mems/download.html.

It is not necessary to uninstall or install MEMS+ 2.0 before installing this update. Coventor strongly advises all customer sites to install this update.

MEMS Energy Harvesting Modeling – Holst – IMEC – Coventor

As wireless sensor nodes become smaller, their energy supply is a limiting factor for further miniaturization as integration density is limited by the space requirements of the energy storage system. MEMS based energy harvesters, such as the one shown in this example, are becoming a key enabler for further miniaturization and deployment of energy autonomous sensor nodes. read more…
