This course, taught by Dr. Gary O'Brien of the Bosch RTC, will provide insight into the issues and challenges in designing MEMS device for commercial and automotive applications. Topics to be covered in the class will include device simulation and design, design of experiments, compensation for cross-wafer and wafer-to-wafer fabrication variations, design for extreme environments, analysis and management of reliability issues including package stress, shock, drift, cost analysis of manufacturing processes, and some discussion of the unique challenges for consumer and automotive customers and markets. Student teams will develop a device design, fabrication process, and manufacturing analysis in response to a specification.
