Sandia MEMS Shortcourses
Sandia offers two short courses which provide information about MEMS applications,
technologies, design, fabrication, and reliability, with an emphasis on the how to
design for the SUMMiT V™ process. One course is an online learning experience with a focus on the diverse MEMS Technologies under development at Sandia, while the other is a 2-day course held at Sandia, with its primary focus on designing for the SUMMiT V process. Course descriptions and sign-up forms are

MEMS Technologies at Sandia
This course aims to provide information and insight about MEMS processing technologies and their applications relevant to Sandia’s mission. We will also guide you through the Design Development Process (DDP) in which researchers follow to realize product.
- Next Course: Under Development
- Location: online
Designing for the SUMMiT V Process using AutoCAD
This course will equip and train participants in the intricacies of designing complex MEMS devices using Sandia developed software, integrated with AutoCAD, with a primary focus on fabrication in the SUMMiT V process.
This course is a highly interactive, computer lead training, which will introduce important design concepts, review analysis tools and strategies, provide specific device and component design techniques, review fabrication process issues related to design, and introduce issues related to back-end processes (release etch and packaging). Presentations and workshops guide the attendees in designing increasingly complex devices, giving attendees the opportunity to get hands on experience running the tools, discuss design ideas, and engage with the speakers to address specific design issues.
Prerequisite: Some experience with AutoCAD software, and an interest in designing MEMS devices for the SUMMiT™ Process.
A minimum of 8 students is required.
