Joint Training with Foundries
Training courses are jointly held by Coventor and one of our MEMS foundry partners. We will provide an overview to foundry specific MEMS processes (for example, MUMPs® or imec SiGe), highlighting their different strengths with reference to potential applications. An overview of the design kits will be presented, and design methodologies will be illustrated using hands-on tutorial exercises.
The first part of the course will provide attendees with an overview of each of the selected MEMS processes, as well as an introduction to the design kits and design rules. The second part of the course will consist of hands-on design exercises using CoventorWare™ or MEMS+™ for design entry, system level simulation and finite element modeling.
The training will also introduce participants to SEMulator3D for “virtual fabrication”. The software and technology related components of the course converge when the attendees will run a DRC and subsequently gain understanding of DRC-violations by means of virtual fabrication in SEMulator3D.
What are the objectives
- Get introduced to a specific MEMS technology
- Get hands-on experience on MEMS+ or/and CoventorWare.
- Get to know the design-rules for specific MEMS technology to design with confidence.
- Get hands-on experience in “virtual fabrication” with SEMulator3D.
Who should attend:
The courses are aimed at postgraduate students, researchers and design engineers that consider performing a MEMS-design by means of Coventor design software. Both experienced and inexperienced designers from both academia and industry are welcome to join. Some basic knowledge of MEMS, semiconductor fabrication techniques, system modeling and finite elements is helpful, but not specifically needed.
More Information – Schedule and Locations
The duration of the training varies from 2 to 4 days, depending on the course chosen. Classes are conducted in different locations throughout Europe. Further information on the course content and schedules can be found under the following websites:
