Chipping Away At Functional Safety Flaws In Automotive Electronics


Today’s automobiles are packed with electronics. From autonomous driving support and infotainment systems to mission-critical functions like braking, a car’s performance depends on the reliability of these electronics systems. While the semiconductors that lie at the heart of these systems have been not been a focus in the past, today their reliability is coming under closer scrutiny by bot... » read more

Performance Improvement By System Aware Substrate Noise Analysis For Mixed-signal IC


The market wants mixed ICs that are smaller and cheaper, and even provide advanced features. To satisfy this contradiction, many mixed ICs makers are reducing their bill of materials (BOM) cost by decreasing the amount of materials in the package or on a board. But these cost-effective methods can cause significant performance degradation with intensified coupling effects due to substrate noise... » read more

CAE Turns To HPC


How ANSYS is addressing the value of HPC technology within the CAE market, the main challenges to the use or uptake of HPC resources, and the future for HPC in CAE. The paper also briefly describes ANSYS Discovery Live — a new design tool that takes advantage of thousands of cores available in a GPU to produce instantaneous simulation results with every interactive change to the model. Discov... » read more

Making The Case For Digital Exploration


Simulation has been established as a proven, effective means of streamlining the product development process. It allows companies to analyze product behavior earlier to evaluate more design iterations in the concept/design stage to optimize products, components and systems. However, simulation is often still siloed away in the domain of expert analysts, preventing companies from fully capitaliz... » read more

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
