Multiphysics Modeling of MEMS

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original


Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are fundamentally driven by multiphysics phenomena, and as such, they require a modeling approach where the relevant physical phenomena are included and coupled. Join James Ransley from Veryst Engineering for a demonstration of how to use multiphysics modeling for MEMS systems.

In the presentation, Ransley will discuss the tools required to model a wide range of sensors and transducers. Effects covered include electromechanical couplings, thin-film damping, thermoelastic damping, and anchor losses.

A live demo in the COMSOL Multiphysics® software will illustrate equation-based approaches to modeling a MEMS gyroscope. A Q&A session will conclude the webinar.

Application Note – Advanced Time-Domain Measurements

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original

Advanced time-domain measurements

Detection of weak signals in the presence of strong disturbers is challenging and requires a high dynamic range. In this application note, we show how high-performance digitizers with built-in FPGA help overcome these challenges using real-time noise suppression techniques such as baseline stabilization, linear filtering, non-linear threshold, and waveform averaging.

Application Note – The Art of Pulse Detection

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original

Pulse detection

Accurate detection of time-domain pulses is a challenging task. There are many hurdles to overcome such as distorted pulse shapes, drifting baseline, and limited data transfer rate. High-performance digitizers with on-board digital signal processing help overcome these challenges. In this application note we explain how to effectively capture and analyze pulses.

Test and measurement solutions & how to control test equipment remotely, while respecting social-distancing.

Post Syndicated from IEEE Spectrum Recent Content full text original

Introducing social distancing

The impact of COVID-19 has disrupted the global satellite production in an unprecedented way.

Many of the satellite industry manufacturing processes came to a halt, when staff lockdowns and social distancing measures had to be employed. Recovery is slowly underway but the effect of the impact is far from over.

The industry is now looking for new ways of making their satellite production more resilient towards the effects of the pandemic. Especially in the test and measurement domain, new technologies and solutions offer manufacturers the opportunity to remain productive and operational, while respecting social-distancing measures.

Much of the equipment used to test satellite electronics can be operated remotely and test procedures can be created, automated and controlled by the same engineers from their homes.

This webinar provides an overview on related test and measurement solutions from Rohde & Schwarz and explains how engineers can control test equipment remotely to continue producing, while respecting social-distancing.

In this webinar you will learn:

The interfaces/standards used to command test equipment remotely
How to maintain production while using social-distanced testing
Solutions from Rohde & Schwarz for cloud-based testing and cybersecurity
