Abstract

Microsystems, by definition, have to consider, even utilize, coupling between several physical effects. Growing economic pressure drives the electronics industry to an increasingly holistic design approach, as well. Experience shows that neglecting certain aspects leads to late and therefore costly changes in the lay out of a product. Reentering redundant data is inefficient and error-prone. This problem is common to all design activities and has already been addressed within the relatively isolated fields of engineering. Yet, it is in microsystem design, where the various disciplines amalgamate most. A workable solution that addresses the interdisciplinary aspects is essential for successful microsys- tem engineering. The capabilities of existing
