Enterprise-Level Simulation on the Amazon Web Services Cloud
Moving engineering simulation to a public cloud platform has great appeal in terms of elastic capacity, business agility and global access. However, the requirements of end-to-end simulation processes can be difficult and time-consuming to implement, and need to follow specific best-practices. ANSYS Enterprise Cloud is a unique solution that delivers the ANSYS platform, with support for full end-to-end workflows, in a secure single-tenant environment on the public cloud. In this presentation we will demonstrate how cloud best-practices for graphics, high performance computing, data management and storage can be delivered as a turnkey solution for ANSYS customers.

Qorvo: Leader in RF Solutions Gives HPC Insight To Meet Computational Needs
Are your high-frequency electromagnetics models becoming increasingly large and complex while your available time to solve or address them is dwindling? This webinar will provide insight and persuasive real-world HFSS examples on how using high-performance computing (HPC) helps to overcome these challenges.

Special guest Troyce Severe, EDA Systems Engineer at Qorvo, will present how the combination of SGI® UV™ hardware solutions and HFSS helps them simulate a wide range of EM designs from single chips to complete module laminate assemblies. Severe also will address how his company has automated EM simulation of laminate design process corners, yielding reduction in both setup time from hours to minutes, and simulation time from a few days to a few hours.

Qorvo is a leading provider of core technologies and RF solutions for mobile, infrastructure and aerospace/defence applications. It was formed following the merger of RFMD and TriQuint, and has more than 6,000 global employees dedicated to delivering solutions for everything that connects the world.

SGI offers a solution that simplifies high performance computing for CAE. SGI has created an easy to deploy, unified hardware platform that addresses a broad spectrum of ANSYS applications and workloads including HFSS.

Save Money & Maximize Performance with ANSYS Mechanical 16.0
on Intel Platforms

ANSYS and Intel® teamed to optimize ANSYS Mechanical for the latest Intel processor and coprocessor innovations. Based on these efforts, both the Windows and Linux versions of ANSYS Mechanical 16.0 (including the SMP and DMP versions of each) can now utilize one or more Intel Xeon Phi coprocessors. With Intel's special promotion and ANSYS HPC Workgroups, you can take advantage of Intel coprocessor performance within your qualified existing hardware at a significantly discounted price.

We will show you how ANSYS Mechanical 16.0 can benefit from the latest generation of Intel Xeon E5 v3 processors and also how to upgrade to these processors, along with the Xeon Phi coprocessors, for spectacular sparse solver performance.
