ANSYS Advantage - Volume XI, Issue 3, 2017
Spotlight on Electronics and Electromagnetic Simulation
As we benefit from the convenience and productivity that electronics provide we become increasingly reliant on embedded electronic systems. Successful businesses must produce systems that are robust and reliable. Advanced electromagnetic simulation of electronics enables exploration of designs, not only for the nominal ability to perform, but to perform reliably over the life of the product.
