How To Plan And Conduct Highly Accelerated Life Testing

Assessing the robustness of an electronic product is integral to successful design and performance. Highly accelerated life testing (HALT) is an important testing tool for this purpose, and its effectiveness can be maximized through careful planning prior to setup and detailed execution. What is HALT? HALT is the process of applying increased stressors to an electronic device to force failure... » read more

Digital Twin Initiative Reaches Across The Cloud To The Edge

Digital twins are a hot topic of conversation across industries. Everyone wants a piece of this technology, without necessarily understanding how it fits into their day-to-day workflows. Today, digital twins are generally used as real-time digital models for validation and verification of a physical twin (model) of a product or system via simulation. Microsoft and Ansys are helping customers ... » read more

Simulating Reality: The Importance Of Synthetic Data In AI/ML Systems For Radar Applications

Artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) are driving the development of next-generation radar perception. However, these AI/ML-based perception models require enough data to learn patterns and relationships to make accurate predictions on new, unseen data and scenarios. In the field of radar applications, the data used to train these models is often collected from real-world meas... » read more

Brrraaap: Full Throttle On Dirt Bike Electrification

On a dirt bike almost any terrain is fair game. Once you hit the back roads, course correcting through open fields or wooded areas to get where you’re going (or not) is easy. These powerful-yet-agile gravel-and-dirt surfing, rock-hopping machines have been identified by some as the undisputed off-road champions — perfect for exploration in places larger vehicles simply can’t go. Dirt b... » read more

Facing Off Against Growing Chip Design Complexity

The semiconductor industry continues to face incredible pressures to deliver higher levels of performance in a smaller area, with lower power demands. From high-performance systems-on-chip for 5G mobile devices and network infrastructure to the radio-frequency transceivers that enable autonomous vehicles and the industrial Internet of Things, today’s applications demand a reduced profile, pai... » read more

Making Electric Vehicles Go Further With New Materials

It’s no secret that vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) are aggressively pursuing electric vehicle (EV) development. Among the headwinds they face in selling their technology to consumers are price and vehicle range. Not surprisingly, there is a direct correlation between the two — in 2021, for any EV under $40,000, the average vehicle range was 187 miles, while the lowest veh... » read more

The Computational Electromagnetics Simulation Challenge Of 3D-IC

By Kelly Damalou and Matt Commens Innovation in semiconductor design today is energized primarily by AI/ML, data centers, autonomous and electric vehicles, 5G/6G, and IoT. Recently developed 2.5 and 3D-IC silicon-based packaging technologies have advanced the state of the art beyond SoC technologies which first united digital, analog, and memory functions on a single chip in the '90s. These ... » read more

Challenges And Solutions In Chip Design

Ansys is hosting IDEAS Digital Forum 2022, a no-cost virtual event that brings together industry executives and technical design experts to discuss the latest in EDA for Semiconductors, Electronics, and Photonics. The December 6th on-line event starts with Keynote addresses from Raja Koduri from Intel, Pankaj Kukkal from Qualcomm, and insights into the metaverse from DP Prakash with start-up... » read more

An Update On 5G And Aircraft Safety

The U.S. aircraft industry is in the final phases of adapting aircraft and airports to address concerns over potential 5G cellular signal interference of automated landing systems. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has driven the process to determine the level of risk to aircraft and safeguard against problems for low-visibility approaches — such as during inclement weather — for ne... » read more
