Invitation: Join Coventor and Cadence for the MEMS @ DAC: Ready to Cross the Chasm meeting

Come see us at Booth 269

This year at DAC, Design Automation Conference on June 14, 15 and 16, Coventor is focused on bringing more awareness about MEMS to the mainstream IC design community. There are several ways you can either learn more about MEMS or contribute to the evolving new eco-system for MEMS production. The MEMS industry is maturing and “ready to cross the chasm”, a serious business opportunity for many companies.

MEMS@DAC: Ready to Cross the Chasm: a Birds of Feather (BOF) meeting at DAC

We would like to invite you to attend an informal MEMS business presentation and meeting hosted by Coventor, Cadence Design Systems and a Semiconductor Foundry during DAC. During this BOF meeting Coventor, Cadence and “Foundry” will give short presentations outlining this new vision for the MEMS industry. The two hour interactive discussion will be moderated by noted chip industry executive Jim Hogan.


The present approach to MEMS design, with separate design tools and ad-hoc methods for transferring MEMS designs to IC design and verification tools is simply not up to these new challenges. New approaches are necessary to enhance MEMS design and bring it into the IC design mainstream, so design costs are reduced, time-to-market is shortened, and MEMS design is no longer confined to teams of specialists inside IDMs.

A critical key to accomplishing this “democratization” is to organize the new-ecosystem. Coventor is now working together with key players in traditional IC design and manufacturing areas to develop such integrated methodologies, with the goal of shielding IC designers from the complexity of MEMS design, and reducing the time, cost and risk of developing MEMS-enabled products.

If you are interested to learn more on how you can benefit from or contribute to the democratization of MEMS, contact us and setup a time to meet.
