Dramatic Accelerations in the Performance of Antenna Placement and Co-site Interference Simulations with NVIDIA GPUs

Figure 1 - Radiation pattern of a ship calculated in ANSYS HFSS SBR+
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.

ANSYS Simplorer – High Fidelity System Simulation

A wide range of industries are taking their single physics simulation tools and moving towards a multiphysics approach which couples two or more solvers to close the gap between simulation and reality. Rotational electromagnetic machines in particular use all three of the main physics areas to design products which achieve increasingly high performance and reliability…
