Strategic Value Of High-Performance Computing For Research And Innovation


High-performance computing (HPC) is an enormous part of the present and future of engineering simulation. HPC enables engineers and researchers to gain high-fidelity insight into product behavior — insight that cannot be obtained without detailed simulation models. When applied to design exploration, HPC can lead to robust product performance and reduced warranty and maintenance costs. Wim Sl... » read more

Energy Efficient, IoT-Based Smart Home


"Smart Home" technology is the future of residential technology, designed to deliver and distribute a number of services inside and outside the house via networked devices in which all the different applications and the intelligence behind them are integrated and interconnected. These smart devices have the potential to share information with each other as long as they can access a broadband in... » read more

Electrification: Achieving Next-Level Performance


Engineered electrical systems for energy production, distribution and consumption are incredibly complex — and becoming even more sophisticated as their functionality increases. Dramatically improving the efficiency of these systems means relying on engineering simulation to introduce extreme innovation, quickly and cost-effectively. To read more, click here. » read more

Digitalization: Best Practices For Designing Smart, Connected Products And Driving Business Outcomes


Today’s product designs contain more functionality per square inch than ever before. We’ve all been impacted by the growth of smartphones and other consumer products, but digitalization has impacted every industry, from manufacturing and transportation to health care. Even traditional products are being reimagined with new smart capabilities. In the current fast-paced, highly competitive gl... » read more

Simulation-Driven Product Development In Additive Manufacturing


Additive manufacturing, or 3-D printing, has the potential to radically change the way in which products are conceived and designed. The additive process allows for unprecedented design complexity and design freedoms. Full subassemblies can be produced in one print eliminating costly joining operations. Parts can be customized and produced in small, made- to-order batches. Parts can be produced... » read more

Beyond The Desktop


Over the past 10 years, computer-aided engineering (CAE), and more generally virtual prototyping, has been increasingly recognized in product design. Simulation-driven prototyping fuels innovation in the manufacturing industry and helps users explore real-world behaviors of products. CAE helps enterprises innovate to: • Compete • Cope with increasingly demanding regulations • Improve p... » read more

A Cost-Effective Model-Based Approach For Developing ISO 26262 Compliant Automotive Safety-Related Applications


Automotive manufacturers and their suppliers increasingly need to follow the objectives of ISO 26262 as it is now state-of-the art and as it is the case that an ever increasing number of active and passive safety systems are developed within cars. This has increased the need to define a safe system development process. This paper proposes a model-based approach including automatic and certified... » read more

Turning Signal Integrity Simulation Inside Out


So what does it mean to turn signal integrity simulation inside out? Modern simulation has physics-based solvers in the foreground supported by circuit and system simulation rather than the other way around. All electronic design is fundamentally based on Maxwell’s equations, so naturally the most rigorous way to deliver accurate simulation of high-performance systems is to solve those equ... » read more

Electrothermal Mechanical Stress Reference Design Flow For Printed Circuit Boards And Electronic Packages


This paper presents a reference design flow for solving the electrical, thermal and mechanical challenges of a printed circuit board (PCB) using simulation tools from ANSYS. This approach can be utilized for all electrical CAD (ECAD) types such as IC packages, touch panel displays, and glass and silicon interposers. The authors followed this reference design flow for analyzing a PCB virtual pro... » read more

The Best Of Both Worlds


Fidelity and accuracy are critical in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation. After all, physical prototyping and testing can only be reduced if one can expect accurate simulation results. But up to now, high fidelity, high accuracy results have come with a price. Complex, realistic geometries have required hours of manual effort to clean up the model and prepare the mesh. Users have bee... » read more
