Coventor and Cadence Collaborate to Develop a MEMS + IC Design Suite
Coventor MEMS+(TM) brings new advances in productivity for MEMS + IC designs with advanced new product development capabilities.
The MEMS+ methodology formalizes the connection between MEMS design and IC design and leverages the support that Cadence Virtuoso(TM) provides for formal sign-off from IC design to foundry. MEMS+ provides significant new capabilities, including 3-D schematic entry, automated non-linear parameterized behavioral model creation, simulation of MEMS with IC design in Cadence, parameterized layout cell (PCell) generation, and export to finite element analysis tools for verification.
Coventor has established a Technology Partnership Program (TPP) to advance and validate MEMS+ with major customers. “We have long been advocating for the integration of MEMS design tools with Cadence to help accelerate the development of MEMS Components; MEMS+ is the right way to go,” said
“We wanted to partner with a company who is committed to MEMS and is considered the leader,” said
“Companies in all segments of the MEMS industry have expressed concerns about the existing disconnect between MEMS and IC design,” said Dr. Josephus
