Tired of 3-month MCU contests? Try a 2-year MEMS contest
A MEMS Design Contest that encourages companies, entrepreneurs, researchers and students from around the globe to propose imaginative concepts combining MEMS (Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems) and mixed-signal technologies has been launched at DATE 2016. In 2018 the winning solution will be transformed into a manufactured design.

Jointly sponsored by Cadence Design Systems, Coventor, X-FAB and Reutlingen University, the contest’s objective is to encourage greater ingenuity with regard to the integration of MEMS devices and mixed-signal CMOS blocks. The organizers will provide free training workshops to familiarize the participating teams with the design tools, design methodologies and process technologies involved. 

A panel of industry professionals and respected academics will undertake appraisal of the submissions. Each submission will be judged on the degree of innovation demonstrated in hardware and methodology, the novelty of the application and the value the design provides. Awards for the top three submissions will be presented at Cadence’s annual user conference, CDNLive EMEA 2018, in Munich and the winning team’s solution will be manufactured at X-FAB’s wafer production facilities.
