Webinar: 3D Solid Modeling and Analysis with Tanner EDA

Tanner EDA

MONROVIA, California – September 19, 2013 – More MEMS designs have been created using Tanner tools than with any other EDA tool. To explain why that is, Tanner EDA, the catalyst for innovation for the design, layout and verification of analog and mixed-signal integrated circuits (ICs), will hold a webinar on Tuesday, September 24th, 2013. The live webinar will demonstrate a 3D solid modeling and analysis capability that may be used for the design of MEMS and integrated MEMS-IC devices, their associated electronics and packaging in commercial MEMS systems.


3D MEMS-IC systems are growing in their level of integration and complexity, often including multiple MEMS sensors/actuators, analog and digital circuitry, microcontrollers, and custom packaging. To meet ever-shrinking market windows, designers are utilizing advanced modeling and visualization tools that provide three-dimensional rendering. By combining device layout with a fabrication process description, a scalable 3D model can be rendered. In addition, a cross section viewer can enhance verification and validation by displaying cutaway views in the Z dimension based on user-defined cut lines.

This webinar will show how 3D modeling tools enable designers to identify composition and fabrication errors early -- resulting in shortened time-to-market, higher product performance and lower manufacturing costs. Examples of how to visualize MEMS and IC devices in 3D using layout and fabrication step descriptions, as well as how to convert 3D solid models into 2D mask layouts, will be presented.

Attendees will see:

• Creation of 3-dimensional device models from L-Edit layout for virtual prototyping

• Creation of MEMS-specific layouts using Tanner EDA L-Edit MEMS

• Conversion of a 3D solid model into a 2D mask layout

A live Q&A session will be offered following the presentation and demonstration.


Tuesday, September 24, 2013 from 8:30am – 9:30am Pacific
