Design Flow and MEMS PDK Developed in Cooperation with XFAB
December 6, 2017
MEMS-based component suppliers want to rapidly ramp their designs into high-volume production. This demand is driving MEMS suppliers to focus on ways to more efficiently re-use established process steps, stacks and technology platforms.
In this webinar, you will learn about:
- The current state of the art in MEMS product design, including compact modeling, CMOS integration, MEMS PDKs and other innovative MEMS design flow techniques.
- New techniques to accelerate the MEMS design process and reduce silicon learning cycles at the foundry, through re-use of established process steps, stacks and technology platforms.
