Startup Funding: September 2022


The onshoring and buildout of dozens of fabs, many costing tens of billions of dollars, is beginning to spill over into other areas that are critical for chip manufacturing. Materials, in particular, which often gets little attention outside of chip manufacturing, witnessed a big spike in September 2022. In fact, seven materials companies covered in this report made up more than a third of the ... » read more

Week In Review: Design, Low Power


Quantum The $3 million Breakthrough Prize in Fundamental Physics was awarded to four pioneers in the field of quantum information. The laureates are Charles H. Bennett, Gilles Brassard, David Deutsch and Peter Shor. Bennett and Brassard were part of the team that proved the usefulness of entanglement, while Deutsch defined the quantum version of a Turing machine. Shor invented the first "clear... » 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
