Benefiting from Thermal and Mechanical Simulation in Micro-Electronics: presents papers from the first international conference on this topic, EuroSimE2000. For the first time, people from the electronics industry, research institutes, software companies and universities joined together to discuss present and possible future thermal and mechanical related problems and challenges in micro-electronics; the state-of-the-art methodologies for thermal & mechanical simulation and optimization of micro-electronics; and the perspectives of future simulation and optimization methodology development.

Main areas covered are:-

The impact of simulation on industry profitability

Approaches to simulation

The state-of-the-art methodologies of simulation

Design optimization by simulation

Benefiting from Thermal and Mechanical Simulation in Micro-Electronics is suitable for students at graduate level and beyond, and for researchers, designers and specialists in the fields of microelectronics and mechanics.
