Coventor Strengthens Industry-Leading MEMS Design Solution With Latest Release of CoventorWare(R) Suite

CoventorWare 2014 Delivers New Levels of Performance, Automation and Accuracy to Address Most Complex MEMS Design Challenges

CARY, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- Coventor®, Inc., the leading supplier of design automation software for developing micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), today announced immediate availability of its new CoventorWare 2014 suite, the industry's most proven development solution for advanced modeling and simulation of MEMS devices. The latest release delivers enhanced levels of performance, automation and accuracy for designing a new generation of sophisticated MEMS devices -- such as accelerometers, gyroscopes, microphones, and micro-actuators -- to reduce overall development costs and time.

The CoventorWare suite has established itself as a production-proven design and simulation platform and has been used in hundreds of MEMS designs over the past 13 years. It includes 2D-to-3D design entry, automatic meshing capabilities and a suite of field solvers that address specialized MEMS physics. The latest release addresses the increasing sophistication and complexity of MEMS devices that are enabling a vast new array of applications, products and devices that enable interaction between the virtual and physical worlds -- a trend often referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT).

"MEMS devices are finding their way into new consumer and industrial application areas and products every day, many of which are putting unprecedented requirements for functionality and performance on MEMS developers. Our CoventorWare platform has been the foundation of hundreds of successful MEMS design projects, and with the newest release we are offering even more powerful and efficient ways to design these extremely complex devices. Now designers can more accurately model more aspects of the design with fewer assumptions," said Steve Breit, Vice President of Engineering at Coventor. "Engineers have an insatiable appetite for more speed, accuracy and automation in the design process, and those are the three key areas we have significantly improved with this latest release."

Focus on Performance and Usability
The CoventorWare 2014 suite features improvements in the tool's electrostatics and coupled electromechanics solvers that provide speed-ups of up to 10X over previous versions of the software. A new accelerated coupling algorithm in the coupled electromechanics solver improves performance without compromising accuracy. The new release also includes improvements to the unique modal harmonic analysis capability specifically for piezo-mechanical resonators.

To improve user efficiency, Coventor has added a range of productivity-oriented features that simplify and automate more user interactions and make scripting more complete and powerful. A new user interface design unifies the setup of all types of coupled electromechanical analyses and reduces opportunities for pilot error. Further, users can more easily track the progress of simulations with real-time updates of additional information in the Job Queue. Finally, a new scripting interface for transforming the input mesh and scaling material properties can eliminate time-consuming repetitive tasks by enabling users to automate parametric studies of design dimensions and sensitivity to manufacturing variations.

Availability
The CoventorWare 2014 platform is now shipping. It is available for Windows 7 Pro 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit, Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop 5 and 6 64-bit. More detailed product information is available from http://www.coventor.com/mems-solutions/products/coventorware/.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
