B2.1 - Simulation Based Design of Sensors

M. Kaltenbacher
In most cases, the fabrication of prototypes within the design process of modern sensors is a lengthy and costly task. Therefore, an increasing need for reliable and usable computer modeling tools capable of precisely simulating the multi-field interactions arises. Such appropriate computeraided engineering (CAE) tools offer many possibilities to the design engineer. Arbitrary modification of sensor geometry and selective variation of material parameters are easily performed and the influence on the sensor behavior can be...
