Automated mask synthesis
Picture this: you have explored a large design space using a schematic-based tool like SYNPLE, and now your device design is optimized. Time to spend tedious hours drawing your mask layout, right? Wrong! The MEMS Synthesis feature will extract a fab-ready layout from your schematic with one click. This is not any simplified layout either - you can easily generate real-world details like stress relief curves, etch compensation features, dimples, and bumpers. Making a change to your design? Why spend hours modifying your layout when you can change the device parameters in SYNPLE and generate a new mask set in seconds?

One click synthesis
Synple goes from schematic to mask layout, meshed model for full verification or to process flow in one click. (a) Mask synthesis in action (b) Synthesized masks include real world features such as stress relief curves, bumpers, dimples and other esoteric features, saving you time (c)and now synthesis capabilities extend to full Hexahedral mesh generation thanks to the magic of Hexpresso.
Hexahedral mesh synthesis
As if this wasnt enough, you can use the MEMS Synthesis feature to take your design two steps further! The synthesis routines can convert the schematic to a process flow to be used as a basis for your fabrication. In addition, you can use the Hexpresso meshing engine to automatically convert your schematic to a 3D meshed model ready for multiphysics analysis.
