Coventor Inc. announced availability of SEMulator3D 2011, the latest version of its virtual fabrication software for semiconductor and MEMS process development organizations. It includes the debut of SEMulator3D Reader.
A two-day seminar later this month in San Jose will offer insights into testing of MEMS inertial sensors and a "strategic plan" to decrease cost and increase efficiency of MEMS device testing.
Yale's Jan Schroers and his team are using a new processing technique to fabricate miniature resonators for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) as well as gyroscopes and other resonator applications from bulk metallic glasses (BMGs) twice as strong as steel.
USHIO America will start marketing the nano-imprint vacuum ultra violet (VUV) ashing system "CHIPs (Compact HiPower System)" in the US. Incorporated into nano-imprint lithography (NIL) equipment, the CHIPs allows non-contact and damage-free cleaning, surface improvement, and ashing of templates and workpieces.
Researchers at imec -- Danae Delbeke and Francesco Pessolano -- discuss announcements made in conjunction with Photonics West regarding the research consortium's NVISION program (for advanced imaging solutions) and silicon. Imec's silicon photonics platform allows for the miniaturization of complex photonic functions on a single chip.
Boston Micromachines Corporation (BMC) won a $100k contract from NASA to support space-based imaging research. The contract will help develop a micro electromechanical deformable mirror (MEMS-DM) with critical enhancements to reliability and fault-tolerance.
Vistec Lithography received a major order from Greece's National Center for Scientific Research (NCSR Demokritos) Institute of Microelectronics (IMEL). This will be the first 100kV lithography system in Greece.
MSGI Technology Solutions provided a science and technology update to its investors on its lab-on-chip chemical sensing technology being developed for NASA. Applications range from blood-less diabetes tests to bio-terrorism detection.
Alchimer announced that the Centre de Collaboration MiQro Innovation/MiQro Innovation Collaborative Centre (C2MI) has licensed its suite of products and its Electrografting (eG) technology to support the center’s 3D MEMS programs.
The Smart System Technology & Commercialization Center at U Albany's CNSE was selected by SPAWAR to build innovative sensor systems for U.S. military intelligence gathering and by EPRI to develop a groundbreaking wireless sensor network to monitor the efficiency of power generation. The two initiatives are valued at $6 million.
