Designing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and other high-performance digital systems are driving extreme integration of radio frequency (RF) and wireless communications. Simulation plays a key role in creating reliable, optimized wireless communications, 5G workflows and components — let's explore how!

Join us as we return to Ottawa for our 4th Annual ANSYS Innovation Conference on May 8, 2019! This one-day conference will provide detailed insight into how leading companies are utilizing simulation to advance their product development. We will bring together ANSYS users, partners, developers, and industry experts for networking, learning, and sharing of new ideas.

What You Will Learn

  • Experience new simulation capabilities that provide unprecedented design insight as they speed your time to market
  • Incorporate various productivity enhancement tools and techniques into your engineering department’s workflow
  • Gain insights into 5G system development with physics-based simulation and cover critical design issues, such as antenna performance, semiconductor reliability, and thermal integrity
  • Identify signal integrity issues early in the design cycle for electronics IC packages, PCBs, connectors and other complex interconnects
  • Modify antenna design, predict antenna efficiency and the overall thermal and EM performance of the product based on electromagnetic and thermal coupling solutions
