Critical Success Factors When Implementing Simulation Led Design Exploration


Upfront simulation in the design stage of product development has long held great promise. It lets engineers find design flaws earlier and explore more alternatives. There is little doubt that such an effort offers tangible benefits to engineering organizations. But several obstacles often prevent companies from implementing a successful simulation initiative. The knowledge, skill, and time ... » read more

End-To-End Cell–Pack–System Solution: Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Battery


Industry has become more interested in developing optimal energy storage systems as a result of increasing gasoline prices and environmental concerns. A major application for energy storage use is hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and electric vehicles (EVs). The rechargeable energy storage system is a key design issue, as it dominates overall vehicle performance. The system as a whole must deliv... » read more

ANSYS 5G SoC Solutions


System-On-Chips for 5G smartphones and networks are complicated since they need to manage huge amounts of antenna data and offer significantly high processing capabilities in a power and thermally constrained environments. ANSYS tools provide thermal, reliability, power-timing and electromagnetic analyses of SoCs that can reveal design weaknesses and prevent system failures. Multiphysics soluti... » read more

Timing Is Of The Essence


Today's advanced 16/7nm system-on-chips (SoCs) are faced with increased variation as they push for lower power. While the sizes of the transistors continue to shrink following Moore's Law, the threshold voltages fail to scale. This causes wide timing variability leading to timing closure difficulties, design re-spins and poor functional yield. Learn how ANSYS Path FX with its unique variatio... » read more

Rapid Optimization of Electrical and Thermal Characteristics of Electric Vehicle Batteries


Battery powered electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) have been gaining market share as the public’s environmental concerns and the depletion of fossil fuels drive the demand for better fuel efficiency. But great improvements in the mileage one can drive before recharging, a faster recharging method, and the creation of a recharging infrastructure akin to today’s gas s... » read more

A Comprehensive Approach To System-Level ESD


The performance and reliability of an electronics system largely depend on the system’s immunity from an electrostatic discharge (ESD) event. Because the components, custom chips and package come from various sources — and often from different companies — they are usually designed by separate teams working in silos and in accordance with predefined margins. The ESD Association estimates t... » read more

Driving Change in the Age of Electric Vehicles


Manufacturers worldwide have accelerated the production of electric vehicles (EVs), ranging from cars to two-wheelers to buses. Between 2016 and 2017, sales of EVs grew by 54%. It is predicted that there will be up to 228 million EVs worldwide by 2030. Read about how engineering simulations will play a large role in this growth worldwide.

An Integrated Simulation Platform to Validate Autonomous Vehicle Safety


Autonomous driving systems rely upon sensors and embedded software for localization, perception, motion planning and execution. Autonomous driving systems can only be released to the public after developers have demonstrated their ability to achieve extremely high levels of safety. Today’s hands-off autonomous driving systems are largely built with deep learning algorithms that can be trained... » read more

SMART Fracture


With the new unstructured mesh method (UMM) in ANSYS Mechanical, engineers can reduce preprocessing time by employing UMM’s automatically generated all-tetrahedral (tet) mesh for crack fronts, while achieving the same high-fidelity results as a simulation run with the ideal hex mesh configuration. Meshing time has been reduced from up to several days to a few minutes. Using UMM, ANSYS has ... » read more

How to Design, Optimize and Validate Safe Laser Headlamps Through Virtual Experimentation


Today, car manufacturers and their suppliers are facing a real challenge: designing attractive laser headlamps that will illuminate the road without blinding drivers and pedestrians. Validating the safety of these headlight systems using physical prototypes would require millions of miles of night-driving testing and cost-prohibitive investment. Simulation is the only option for adequately a... » read more
