Multiphysics Simulation of a Printed Circuit Board - Application Brief

When evaluating printed circuit board (PCB) designs, engineers must balance the requirements of multiple physics disciplines in optimizing PCB reliability. R&D teams must closely study three broad areas of product reliability -- electrical, thermal and mechanical -- to produce PCB designs that contribute to long service life and reduced product failure. You can use ANSYS software in an integrated fashion to examine the overall reliability of a printed circuit board, simulating individual physical phenomena as well as the interaction between physics disciplines to improve overall product performance.
