I am just wondering how is the simulation of the mechanical part done. It is easy to simulate the electrical part but difficult to do so for the mechanical properties - they could change in the manufacturing process.

I was wondering how the designers were able to get it right on silicon. What is the under the hood simulation engine based on? Is it spice or something else altogether? Will this advanced tool allow for cheaper, more accurate MEMs in the near future? One can only hope and dream..

It seems a very nice simulation tool conventorware designed by conventor, this tool might become "multisim" for mems.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
