PC Based MEMS Pro

Please note. PC MEMS Pro is a MEMS overlay to Tanner tools. MEMS Pro from SoftMEMS does not include Tanner tools and this must be purchased separately (available through EUROPRACTICE).

MEMS Pro is a PC-based integrated CAD tool suite for the design of microsystems coupled with electronics. It ensures a seamless design flow from schematic capture to system simulation and to automated or custom layout and verification. MEMS Pro designs are foundry-ready with industry-standard output formats including GDS II, CIF, EDIF and DXF. MEMS Pro is an easy to use product and is the right choice for first-time CAD tool users.

MEMS Pro is based on 2 modules:
Modules Description Tools Required
MEMS Pro DS (Design Suite) Complete design environment dedicated to MEMS from schematic simulation to mask layout design - Ensure the link between layout and 3-dimensional model. Tanner L-Edit v15.02
Tanner T-Spice Pro v15.02
ROM Reduced order model generator. ANSYS v9.0 to v13.0
MEMS Pro Features: ROM Features
