After talking to design engineers who are responsible for both Antenna Placement and Co-site Interference simulations, we have heard that they typically desire results to be available in less than 10 minutes in order for them to effectively test all the different configurations required on a real-world project. If the simulation time grows beyond 10...

Moving towards a Comprehensive Virtual PCB Testing Platform

ANSYS Simulation results for Printed Circuit Boards (PCBs)

Trends such as such as Industry 4.0, the Internet of Things (IoT), drones, smart home technology and autonomous vehicles are continuing to push PCB technology to its limits. Electronics engineers are now needing to focus on more than just the electromagnetics aspects of PCB design, and are increasingly concerned about power consumption, thermal & vibration issues linked to reliability concerns in harsh environments.

The Internet of Things has rapidly become a major industry focus with dramatic advancements in low power electronics and in wireless technology. Body-worn communication systems are now capable of detecting body motion during exercise and monitoring functions like heart rate and blood pressure. In such systems, a critical topic is how to preserve antenna performance,…
