Simulate Automotive Radar In 5 Dimensions


Automotive radar has emerged as one of the backbone technologies in the automotive industry’s advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) revolution. Because radar uses electromagnetic waves to sense the environment, it can operate over a long distance in poor visibility or inclement weather conditions. Designing automotive radar that accurately captures diverse traffic situations will be essen... » read more

Preventing Line Change Disruptions With Digital Twins


During times of crisis, companies can struggle to meet the demand for everyday necessities. Companies need to increase uptime without risking equipment or product quality. During times of crisis, like the COVID-19 pandemic, manufacturing companies can struggle to meet the demand of everyday necessities. We’ve seen this happen in real-time with the shortages of personal protective equipm... » read more

Introducing The Simulation World Virtual Conference For Multiphysics Verification


The elimination of all live seminars and conferences has been felt particularly acutely by Ansys. The company’s extraordinary breadth of simulation products across many different physics – including fluidics, mechanical, optical, electrical, materials, and semiconductors – means that dozens of events for many different industrial sectors have been cancelled or postponed this year. In r... » read more

Using AI-Optimized Tuning To Design 5G And mmWave Filters


The demand for 5G applications increases the need for radio frequency (RF) and microwave filter components in the mm-Wave frequency bands. The SynMatrix online interface with the AI-optimized tuning panel. “5G applications present some unique challenges to mm-Wave and 5G passive components,” said Diamond Liu, product manager of SynMatrix. “Fabrication capability limitations make i... » read more

Accelerated Life Testing For Failure Prediction


By Theresa Duncan and Chris South Product reliability is essential for success, especially for electronic products like printed circuit boards (PCB). Accelerated life testing (ALT) is an expedient and cost-effective solution to determine the reliability and robustness of an electronic product or component. ALT uncovers potential failure risks and quantifies the life characteristics of a p... » read more

Cloud And HPC Simulation Myths


Engineers are faced with the challenge of analyzing complex simulations while meeting tight deadlines. As a result, compute capacity is limiting the performance of many engineering organizations. High-performance computing (HPC) and cloud deployments can clear this simulation bottleneck. However, there are still misconceptions about the reliability, complexity, licensing, cost and security o... » read more

Using Digital Image Correlation To Determine BGA Warpage


Digital image correlation (DIC) is a non-contact, full-field displacement, optical measurement technique. It is often used in the following applications: Material characterization Coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) Glass transition temperature Young’s modulus Poisson’s ratio Sample testing for fatigue and failure In situ monitoring of displacements and str... » read more
