Coventor, Inc.

Coventor™ provides a comprehensive suite of software tools for the design, optimization, and analysis of micro-scale devices, including MEMS and fluidic components and subsystems. The company’s flagship product, CoventorWare™, consists of four proven, fully integrated applications optimized for the creation of micro-scale devices. Architect™ provides schematic-based behavioral simulations that enable designers to quickly explore and optimize design alternatives. Designer™ allows designers to define 3D geometry and processes for MEMS components. Analyzer™ uses finite element physics to test and verify designs. Integrator™ allows designers to create MEMS templates for use with industry-standard IC simulators, such Synopsys® and Cadence®. Available separately or bundled, CoventorWare applications are fully customizable to conform to designers’ preferred design flows and methodologies. Coventor also offers MEMulator™, a process emulator and virtual prototyping tool that creates accurate, highly detailed 3D representations of microfabricated devices or even entire wafers in minutes, allowing designers to easily detect errors and reduce production costs.

Coventor is a privately held company headquartered in Cary, NC, with offices in Cambridge, MA, and San Mateo, CA. European headquarters are in Paris, France. Coventor also services the Asia Pacific through regional distributors.

IntelliSense Software Corporation

For more than a decade, IntelliSense Software Corporation, a privately held company, has provided MEMS design and development services as well as Software Tools for the MEMS Professional. IntelliSense Software has developed advanced MEMS devices for many sectors including the optical, RF, laboratory equipment, and life sciences industries. IntelliSense leverages its expertise by selling a market-leading, device- and package-level MEMS software package, IntelliSuite®. IntelliSense provides Total MEMS Solutions™ to customers in twenty countries on three continents.

IntelliSuite, since becoming the first commercial MEMS CAD tool on the market in 1995, has been the tool of choice for MEMS engineers in the design, simulation, and optimization of their devices. Because MEMS performance is highly dependent on the fabrication process, IntelliSuite uses machine settings and mask sets to generate 3D models for analysis. This assures both accurate geometry and accurate thin-film material properties are applied to IntelliSuite's MEMS-specific analysis engines (coupled thermo-electro-mechanical, microfluidic, and electromagnetic). By incorporating process templates, thin-film material engineering, mask layout, and device analysis within a single tool, IntelliSuite enables MEMS engineers to optimize devices prior to fabrication, reducing development time and costs.

IntelliSense Software's headquarters are located in Woburn, Massachusetts.

Kluwer Academic Publishers

Welcome to Kluwer's collection of nanoscience books and journals-high-quality publications covering the field for materials scientists, engineers and chemists. Our newest titles include: Trends in Nanoscale Mechanics; Nanotechnology in Catalysis, Volume 1 and Volume 2; Nanoparticles: Building Blocks for Nanotechnology; and Nanostructures: Synthesis, Functional Properties and Applications.

Explore the concepts, chemical properties, processes, synthesis, characterization and applications of nanomaterials through Kluwer's extensive list of reference works, monographs, articles and National Science Foundation reports. And don't forget to download a free sample issue of the Journal of Nanoparticle Research and the Journal of Cluster Science: Including Nanoclusters and Nanoparticles.

Kluwer is also the proud publisher of the Nanostructure Science and Technology series: "The series will cover, in a coherent fashion, the developments in basic research from the distinct viewpoints of physics, chemistry, biology, and materials science and also the engineering technologies emerging from this research. Each volume will also reflect this flow from science to technology. As time goes by, the earlier series volumes will then serve as reference texts to subsequent volumes." David J. Lockwood (Series Editor), National Research Council, Ottawa, Canada.

Molecular Simulations, Inc.

MSI was the leading provider of simulation and modeling tools for drug discovery and chemical development.

Founded in 1984, MSI grew through the combination of a number of leading names in the molecular modeling industry to be the leading company in the area. MSI incorporated companies including BioDesign, Biosym, Polygen, Cambridge Molecular Design, and BioCAD. Many of these companies emerged from, or developed close links with, leading Universities -- Harvard, Cambridge, York and the California Institute of Technology are examples.

The company's product-line included the best-known names in modeling for drug discovery: Insight, QUANTA/CHARMm, and Cerius2 as well as the unique tools for materials science modeling in the Cerius2 software environment, now available within Materials Studio.

MSI was acquired by Pharmacopeia Inc. in 1998 and subsequently acquired Synopsys Scientififc Systems, Oxford Molecular, and GCG. The goal was the creation of a single provider of simulation and informatics tools capable of building an integrated technology platform for research and development. That company is Accelrys.
