Abstract:This paper describes an analytical approach for the network-type modeling of pull-in comb drives based on a mathematical field description using conformal mapping methods. The model was coded in MAST R for the SABER R simulator and its accuracy was compared to FDM and boundary element simulations using MAFIA and MEMCAD. This approach leads to a library of network-type multi domain component models for the system simulation of MEMS, providing nearly the accuracy of field-solving codes at network-type simulation speed.
