Thermal Simulation Tools for Microsystem Elements

, , , ,

Keywords: ,

Two different field solver tools have been developed in order ro facilitate fast thermal and electro-static simulation of microsystem elements. The pSTHERMANAL program is capable for the fast steadystate and dynamic simulation of suspended multilayered microsystem structures. The 2D-SUNRED program is the first version of a generalfield solver based on an original method, the successive node reduction. SUNRED offers a very fast and accurate substitute of FEM programs for the solution of the Poisson equation.
