Preventing PCB Failures Due to Thermal and Mechanical Stresses                       

The potential for failure in electronic systems due to thermal and mechanical loading of printed circuit boards (PCBs) is escalating due to steadily increasing power dissipation combined with smaller board sizes. It has not been practical to accurately simulate PCB deformation because too much computing power is required to solve a finite element model containing the whole board geometry. A new Ansys multiphysics methodology overcomes this problem by simplifying the PCB geometry while tracking the material properties of each segment of the board. Engineers can use this new methodology to accurately predict the deformation generated by thermal-mechanical stresses, random vibration, and mechanical shock within the timeframe of a typical design iteration.


Electro-Thermal Analysis Using Icepak in Ansys Electronics Desktop                      

With the native integration of Ansys Icepak into the Ansys Electronics Desktop, Ansys users benefit from a highly streamlined electromagnetic-thermal analysis workflow that promotes better collaboration between electrical and thermal engineers. With seamless coupling between Icepak and the Ansys Electromagnetic (EM) tool suite, accurate and detailed heat losses, determined by EM calculations, can be easily included in the thermal calculations via intuitive right-click operations.

The biggest challenges faced by organizations trying to manage the simulation process are:

  1. State-of-the-art simulation workflows require collaboration
  2. Organizing and monitoring of simulation activities
  3. Lack of visibility
  4. Lack of interconnectivity
  5. Lack of context


Workflow Automation Speeds Your Digital Transformation

Product design and development complexity continues to increase, extending to the system level where multiple components within products need to interact.


Take Your Engineering Simulation Workflow to the Next Level

Since every company is different, a simulation process and data management solution should be easily configured. It follows your review process and is flexible to account for change orders. Finally, it should be open to any data format or tool while still providing full traceability.
