Congratualations to the team which won first prize at the International MEMS competition :
This team was jointly lead by lecturer at ESIEE Paris, Philippe Bassett and lecturer at Université de Sorbonne, Dimitri Galayko.
They have been awarded for their project ‘Energy vibration sensor of electrostatic transduction’ designed in a commercial procedure, which is either for a MEMS component or the integrated circuit conditioning.
Many criteria were important to the jury : technical innovation, excellence, originality, integrated design flow, organizational strength, the quality of the provided documentation and the educative value of the project. They were awarded with a cheque of $5000, an annual membership for CoventorMP and the device will be created by XFab.
The companies Cadence, XFab and Coventor, in partnership with l'Université de Reutlingen, are working together to organize a global competition for integrated co-design of MEMS devices * and their conditioning electronics.
Electromechanical Microsystems (MEMS) are miniaturized devices with moving / vibrating elements that are used to make sensors and actuators. Originally derived from the microelectronics industry, MEMS are now present in a wide range of consumer products.
