Product Microsystem design
Title Microsystem design
Product Type open and distance learning
Marketing Text A training to get an advanced knowledge in microsystem construction functioning and fabrication technologies
Description The course will give principles of static and dynamic behaviour of microsystem structures as beams and plates in different configurations in terms of boundary conditions and loading. Basic acoustic elements will be described and their effect on microstructures damping will be shown. Approaches to reduced-order modelling of complex microstructures will be explained and the electromechanical and electroacoustic analogies will be studied in detail. Basic electromechanical transduction mechanisms will be described; their analogy models will be developed and applied to examples of real microsystems. Among the transduction mechanisms will be both reciprocal principles as electrostatic, piezoelectric, electromagnetic and electrodynamic, and non-reciprocal principles as piezoresistive and thermomechanical.
Target group Technicians or engineers already working in microelectronics and expecting to extend their skills
Result Being able to manage complex technical and professional activities and projects for microsystem design and test, taking responsibility for decision-making in unpredictable work contexts.
Area of application Ability to design at least two different types of microsystems using specialised software and their characterisation
