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.
