L-EDIT / MEMSPRO Workshop

January 23 to 24, 2020 in Vancouver, BC, Canada

This two-day workshop comprises of introduction to L-edit and MEMSPro on day 1 and covers advanced layout topics and advanced MEMSPro features on day 2. MEMS Pro is a flexible, powerful, easy-to-use CAD tool suite for the design and analysis of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). It offers an integrated solution for the design process that shortens development time while providing designers reliable analysis for manufacture. Functionalities include mixed MEMS/IC schematic capture and simulation, full custom mask layout capability and verification, 3D model generation and visualization, behavioural model creation and links to 3D analysis packages. L- Edit includes a fully hierarchical and full custom editor engineered for MEMS and IC design. Popular output formats are supported so mask designs are “foundry ready”. Learn more about L-Edit.

Photo Title Biography
Dr. Mary Ann Maher Dr. Mary Ann Maher received her PhD from Caltech in 1989 in the area of semiconductor device modeling developing a new charge-based transistor model. At Caltech, she conducted research in the area of neuromorphic systems, analog circuits and transistor modeling. She pursued post doctoral studies at the CSEM in Neuchatel, Switzerland, where she studied analog memories and designed low power analog ICs with on-chip sensors for artificial vision applications. At Tanner Research she began the simulation and modeling group and launched Tanner’s T-Spice analog circuit simulator product. She then became the Software Architect responsible for specifications for layout, routing, simulation, analysis, schematic and viewing design tools. As Director of Advanced Products, she brought to market Tanner’s MEMS Pro microsystem and MCM Pro multi-chip module and packaging design tool suites. Moving to MEMSCAP, she became the company’s CTO and later the General Manager and Executive Vice President of the Design Automation Business Unit. In 2004, she started SoftMEMS, LLC, the maker of the popular microsystems design tools – MEMS Pro and MEMS Xplorer, where she serves as CEO.
