Abstract
MEMS structures rendered defective by particles are modeled a tthe scehamtic-level using existing models of fault-free MEMS primitives within the nodal simulator NODAS. We have compared the results of schematic-level fault simulations with low-level finite element analysis and demonstrated the efficacy of such an approach. Analysis shows that NODAS achieves a 60X speedup over FEA with little accuracy loss in modeling defects caused by particles.
