Abstract

This work presents a stochastic framework based on stochastic collocation approach to quantify the effect of uncertain parameters on the performance of electrostatic MEMS devices. We consider an example of a MEMS switch to demonstrate that the proposed methodology can be used to design effective and reliable MEMS devices. The approach is straightforward to implement and can be orders of magnitude faster than the Monte Carlo method.
