Structured modeling and design practices; multiphysics at microscales; physical limitations in MEMS; interface with electronics; behavioural modeling languages for mixed analog-digital system design. Credit will only be given for one of EECE 489 or 581.
The course will introduce the students to MEMS-based microsystems, with an emphasis on an integrated perspective and systematic methods for the design and analysis of interdisciplinary systems at microscale. A structured top-down design methodology encompassing several levels (symbolic computation based on analytical modeling, reduced order macromodeling, finite element analysis and layout design) will be applied to design projects and case studies in the field of MEMS (micro-electromechanical systems). Available design and analysis tools (matlab/Simulink, MEMS Pro and Comsol Multiphysics) will be used during the project assignments. The course will also introduce standard behavioral modeling languages (VHDL-AMS, Modelica) used in current simulators.
On the successful completion of this course, the students will be able to:
