PORTLAND, Ore.—With the market for micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) chips growing at a 50 percent annual growth rate, according to Goldman Sachs (New York), electronic design automation (EDA) tool vendor Coventor Inc. (Cary, N.C.) aims to speed-up the MEMS chip design process by adding scripted automation and by dramatically expanding the size of the devices it can simulate. "Conventor users can now use the Python scripting language to automate the process of changing test parameters and then running simulations to make sure MEMS devices meet their design specifications under all operating conditions," said Stephen Breit, vice president of product development at Coventor. Coventor is the premiere EDA tool for designing MEMS devices, used by all major MEMS chip makers including WiSpry Inc. (Irvine, Calif) whose MEMS varactor (manufactured for it by IBM) was recently d...
