Sensors and MEMS Design

The lifeblood of the IoT is sensors, actuators and other MEMS devices. As more and more devices are IoT-enabled, the challenges of designing and deploying the sensors and MEMS devices that make them work are increasingly difficult. MEMS devices are complex, and the never-ending requirement to build smaller and more power-efficient devices means that engineers always have a tough task to build reliable, high-performance products that beat the competition. And beating the competition requires fast, efficient and cost-effective product development.

ANSYS is uniquely positioned as the best simulation provider for sensor and actuator MEMS designers. First, the breadth and depth of ANSYS physics enables simulation of a wide range of sensors and actuators, from RF sensors dependent on electromagnetic fields to gyroscopes dependent on mechanical motion, as well as piezoelectric devices with both mechanical and electromagnetic components. Next, tightly coupled multiphysics simulations provide high-fidelity analysis of designs and performance. Finally, our long history of working with MEMS designers has created deep in-house expertise, so ANSYS developers are acutely aware of the simulation needs of the industry.
