10x Faster Structural Analysis
ANSYS Mechanical 17.0 gives you greater insight into your product designs. Its improved solver performance enables you to model your product designs faster with more simulations in the same length of time. And with a 10x increase in computing core counts, you can solve demanding structural simulations faster and with greater detail.
Predict Manufacturing Variability of Composites to Achieve Tighter Tolerances
ANSYS Mechanical 17.0 delivers advanced composites simulation technology. You can simulate variability materials and curing with ease, giving you more confidence than ever before in your composite modeling.
10x Faster Transient Electromagnetic Field Simulation
The new Time Decomposition Method for ANSYS Maxwell delivers game changing computational capacity and speed for full transient electromagnetic field simulation. This patent pending technology allows you to solve all time steps simultaneously instead of sequentially, while distributing the time steps across multiple cores, networked computers and compute clusters. The result is a phenomenal increase in simulation capacity and unprecedented simulation speed.
10x More Productive Chip-Package-System Workflows
Deliver smaller, power efficient, more portable devices with ANSYS Chip-Package-System (CPS) workflow. ANSYS CPS has powerful new 3-D layout assembly features, a fast electromagnetic extraction solver, linkage to IC models, and automated thermal analysis with integrated structural analysis.
10x Collaborative Antenna and Wireless System Design Flow
Dominate your wireless communication competitors with the ANSYS Antenna and Wireless System Design flow. Powerful new features including antenna synthesis, design and processing; encrypted 3-D components with patent-pending hidden and encrypted design; and new high frequency solvers for antenna placement and radio frequency interference (RFI) diagnosis deliver a highly automated and collaborative wireless design flow.
10x Faster Chip Power Integrity Analysis
Productivity gains, sign-off accuracy and coverage against complex reliability issues are critical requirements in the product development cycle for large designs using advanced process technologies. ANSYS semiconductor solutions yield faster turnaround times for ultra-large designs, along with simulation coverage for FinFET power integrity and reliability sign-off.
Over 10 Years of Foundry-certified Chip-level Power Integrity
Ten years of foundry certification is a testament to accuracy of analysis and a track record of “first silicon success” for ANSYS RedHawk and ANSYS Totem. Together, these simulation solutions are responsible for thousands of successful silicon designs for many semiconductor companies around the world.
