Abstract

In this paper we present a novel method of nonlinear macro model of a cantilever for mixed domain simulation only with SPICE. Based on lumped elements of equivalent circuits a model is developed, which realizes a coupled electro-thermal-mechanical simulation including crosstalk effects. The model is verified with measurement and helps to class and solve crosstalk. With SPICE as electrical circuit simulator the cantilever array could be simulate in conjunction with the excitations and analysis electronics more detailed like the system level models and faster like FEM-simulation.
