Simulation Techniques for Micromachined Devices
Simulating micromachined devices such as gyros, accelerometers, and
microvalves, is always a computationally challenging task. The
difficulty stems from the fact that typical micromachined devices are
geometrically complicated, innately three-dimensional, and couple
multiple physical effects (e.g. mechnical, electromagnetic and fluid
In the last six years, there has been enormous progress on techniques
and tools for simulating micromachined devices. In this tutorial, we
will try to describe many of these recent developments including: Fast
3-D solvers, multilevel coupled domain methods, and numerical
model order reduction. The tutorial, intended for an audience of
both developers and users of simulation tools, will focus on more
on broad issues and trade-offs rather than fine details of specific
The tutorial will take place Tuesday afternoon, March 20th 2001, at 5:30 pm.
The price is $45.00 and includes course notes as well as a complimentary
tropical cocktail, which will be served during the break. Sign up now!
