CFD Research Corporation
CFD Research Corporation (CFDRC) is the technology leader in Engineering Simulations Software and Innovative Designs and Prototypes. Our software products and engineering services are used by over 600 organizations worldwide, in the Semiconductor, Biotechnology, Fuel Cells, MEMS, Plasma, Combustion, Propulsion, Materials, Defense, Aerospace, Automotive, Chemical, Electronics, Power Generation, and Environmental industries.
Coventor™ provides a comprehensive suite of software tools for the design, optimization, and analysis of micro-scale devices, including MEMS and fluidic components and subsystems. The company’s flagship product, CoventorWare™, consists of four proven, fully integrated applications optimized for the creation of micro-scale devices. Architect™ provides schematic-based behavioral simulations that enable designers to quickly explore and optimize design alternatives. Designer™ allows designers to define 3D geometry and processes for MEMS components. Analyzer™ uses finite element physics to test and verify designs. Integrator™ allows designers to create MEMS templates for use with industry-standard IC simulators, such Synopsys® and Cadence®. Available separately or bundled, CoventorWare applications are fully customizable to conform to designers’ preferred design flows and methodologies. Coventor also offers MEMulator™, a process emulator and virtual prototyping tool that creates accurate, highly detailed 3D representations of microfabricated devices or even entire wafers in minutes, allowing designers to easily detect errors and reduce production costs.
Coventor is a privately held company headquartered in Cary, NC, with offices in Cambridge, MA, and San Mateo, CA. European headquarters are in Paris, France. Coventor also services the Asia Pacific through regional distributors.
Coyote Systems, Inc. provides a complete, integrated 3D physical analysis solution that addresses MEMS design as well as deep submicron interconnect issues. Coyote serves system, subsystem, semiconductor product, and semiconductor foundry companies that require fully automated MEMS analysis and accurate interconnect analysis for timing and signal integrity. Founded in July 1996, the company is privately held.
IntelliSense Software Corporation
For more than a decade, IntelliSense Software Corporation, a privately held company, has provided MEMS design and development services as well as Software Tools for the MEMS Professional. IntelliSense Software has developed advanced MEMS devices for many sectors including the optical, RF, laboratory equipment, and life sciences industries. IntelliSense leverages its expertise by selling a market-leading, device- and package-level MEMS software package, IntelliSuite®. IntelliSense provides Total MEMS Solutions™ to customers in twenty countries on three continents.
IntelliSuite, since becoming the first commercial MEMS CAD tool on the market in 1995, has been the tool of choice for MEMS engineers in the design, simulation, and optimization of their devices. Because MEMS performance is highly dependent on the fabrication process, IntelliSuite uses machine settings and mask sets to generate 3D models for analysis. This assures both accurate geometry and accurate thin-film material properties are applied to IntelliSuite's MEMS-specific analysis engines (coupled thermo-electro-mechanical, microfluidic, and electromagnetic). By incorporating process templates, thin-film material engineering, mask layout, and device analysis within a single tool, IntelliSuite enables MEMS engineers to optimize devices prior to fabrication, reducing development time and costs.
IntelliSense Software's headquarters are located in Woburn, Massachusetts.

MEMSCAP is the first and only publicly listed pure play MEMS company in the world. Its status as a leading provider of design, development and manufacture of MEMS-based solutions and products, lies on a proven MEMS expertise, an aggressive strategy served by a high human potential as well as a unique network of IP user patent and innovative, adaptable taylor-made solutions for a range of international customers.
MEMSCAP main markets today are Foundry and associated services, Medical/biomedical and Aerospace modules and systems, computer Aided Design, Communications (Optical and Wireless).
Microcosm Technologies, Inc.
Microcosm Technologies provides a comprehensive suite of software tools for the design, optimization, and analysis of micro-scale devices, including MEMS and fluidic components and subsystems. The company’s flagship product, MEMCAD, consists of four proven, fully integrated applications optimized for the creation of micro-scale devices.
Microcosm Technologies is a privately held company headquartered in Cary, NC, with offices in Cambridge, MA, and San Mateo, CA. European headquarters are in Paris, France. Microcosm Technologies also services the Asia Pacific through regional distributors.
Molecular Simulations, Inc.
MSI was the leading provider of simulation and modeling tools for drug discovery and chemical development.
Founded in 1984, MSI grew through the combination of a number of leading names in the molecular modeling industry to be the leading company in the area. MSI incorporated companies including BioDesign, Biosym, Polygen, Cambridge Molecular Design, and BioCAD. Many of these companies emerged from, or developed close links with, leading Universities -- Harvard, Cambridge, York and the California Institute of Technology are examples.
The company's product-line included the best-known names in modeling for drug discovery: Insight, QUANTA/CHARMm, and Cerius2 as well as the unique tools for materials science modeling in the Cerius2 software environment, now available within Materials Studio.
MSI was acquired by Pharmacopeia Inc. in 1998 and subsequently acquired Synopsys Scientififc Systems, Oxford Molecular, and GCG. The goal was the creation of a single provider of simulation and informatics tools capable of building an integrated technology platform for research and development. That company is Accelrys.
