Micro-electro-mechanical systems equipped with active devices (iMEMS) are commonly employed in sensor applications. In this paper, simulation of the mechanical and electrical properties of a deformable structure containing an integrated MOS sensor is described.
A code for the dynamical simulation of electrostatic actuated micromechanical systems with complex 3D geometry was created. It allows exact electrical force computation at each time step during the dynamic analyses. A finite element method [...]
This paper presents a novel inductance extraction procedure which is based on a Monte Carlo sampling technique. Partial inductances for static current distributions can be computed efficiently and with small memory requirements, thus enabling the [...]
Presently microsystems are gaining in interest. Microsystems are small, independent modules, incorporating various functions, such as electronic, micro mechanical, data processing, optical, chemical, medical and biological functions. Though improving the manufacturing technologies, the measuring of [...]
Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBT's) are widely used in the automotive industry as high power current switches. They are currently being introduced into traction applications (locomotives, trams, metros, etc.) where high reliability is extremely important. [...]
