Abstract
FEM simulation is often a very time-consuming process in the design optimization of complex MEMS. System-level models with reduced order and accuracy have to be generated as a basis of a multi-domain system simulation. A powerful modelling methodology is needed to develop a library of MEMS models for different physical domains (mechanical, magnetic, fluidic, ...). The components are modelled as multi-terminal elements (multipoles) in generalized KIRCHHOFFian networks and are described with VHDL-AMS or other model description languages. Numerical model generation and parameterization is supported by a tool suite. Simulator coupling offers an additional possibility for analyzing heterogeneous MEMS.
