Optimetrics Option

ANSYS Optimetrics is a versatile software program that adds parametric, optimization, sensitivity and statistical analysis capabilities to ANSYS HFSS, ANSYS Maxwell and ANSYS Q3D Extractor. Optimetrics automates the design optimization process for high-performance electronic devices by quickly identifying optimal values for design parameters that satisfy user-specified constraints.

Parametric analysis

  • User-specified range and number of steps for parameters
  • Automatic analysis of parameter permutations
  • Automated parser management across multiple hardware platforms and reassembly of data for parametric tables and studies

Optimization

  • User-selectable cost functions and goal objective
    • Quasi-Newton method
    • Sequential nonlinear programming (SNLP)
    • Integer-only sequential nonlinear programming

Sensitivity Analysis

  • Design variations to determine sensitivities
    • Manufacturing tolerances
    • Material properties

Tuning

  • User-controllable slide-bar for real-time tuning display and result

Statistical Analysis

  • Design performance distribution versus parameter values
