The deadline has been extended till 23rd Oct 2022.
The Piezo MEMS process is attached herewith. Piezo MEMS process
The proposal should be have 3 pages with details on motivation, device design, optimization, simulations, characterization plan, a packaging scheme, and images of mask layout of the proposed design.
No. There are free softwares such as KLayout which can be used for layout and if you have access to proprietary software, that is fine too. The accepted layout will be in gds format.
Teams should be no larger than 2 people.
There is no age, affiliation or background restriction.
The 30 entries will be selected and intimated by 15Nov.
The 30 teams will be asked to submit their GDS designs which must meet the design rules specified. These designs will be checked using a design rule checker. Provided the submission meets the design rules specified, you will be asked to make a presentation on December 27th.
The final results will be announced by December 31st.
No. You have to stick to the process mentioned by us.
Only the winners of the competition will have to opportunity to come to CeNSE as stated in the poster.
