Package design database is reducing MEMS R&D cost
Kyocera is cooperating with US company Coventor
07 July 2004
Kyocera Corporation, the leading Japanese manufacturer of ceramic packages for ICs (Integrated Circuits) and MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) is cooperating with the US company Coventor, the leading company for MEMS design and analysis software.
Consequently the cost of MEMS-package development, which could be up to 45% of the total development cost, can be reduced significantly. This new MEMS-package database allows designers to achieve a more robust MEMS system solution, and offers the shortest possible time from the design to market.
It is unique and valuable relationship when a software and hardware company collaborate in this way to offer the design tools required for the development of MEMS devices and thereby accelerate their growth into the market place.
