MEMS/NEMS Design Automation and Synthesis Annual Report for NSF Grant # CCR-DES/CC-0306557
 

Summary: 1
MEMS/NEMS Design Automation and Synthesis
Annual Report for NSF Grant # CCR-DES/CC-0306557
(2005/2006)
Alice M. Agogino, PI and Carlo H. Séquin, Co-PI
University of California at Berkeley
Project Description: The goal of the project is to extend the existing SUGAR MEMS
simulator into a design synthesis tool that supports the early stages of MEMS/NEMS
conceptual design. We are developing a broad base of MEMS building blocks and
hierarchies of clusters and assemblies that can be integrated into a "MEMS/NEMS
Design Automation and Synthesis" framework for constructing a large range of MEMS
suspension devices.
1. Project Tasks for Years 2 and 3
Develop a preliminary indexed module library within Sugar that includes the building
blocks found in Year 1.
Re-synthesize some of the most representative MEMS design examples from the
literature and verify adequacy of module library.
Develop a human-interactive framework around our exploratory GA algorithms to
manually identify promising patterns in the designs generated by stochastic
evolutionary algorithms and to guide the future direction of the exploratory search.
