Cutting-edge simulation technology helps this startup push the boundaries of how sensors are powered in the emerging age of the Industrial Internet of Things. ReVibe develops technology to efficiently transform ambient energy into electricity to power wireless equipment.
As electronics become more and more pervasive in our lives and businesses, the complexity of design increases exponentially, requiring advanced electronics simulation to develop the reliable products we can no longer flourish without.
ANSYS Advantage showcases how engineering simulation is driving product development. From a bottle warmer. to electronic throttle controls to landmark buildings, engineers are designing better, more reliable products. Engineers who design turbomachinery are improving performance and by simulating entire systems, determining the effects of erosion and employing ANSYS Workbench and high-performance computing as a best practice for design. Other articles demonstrate how researchers are reducing surgery for children, one of the ways that The Dow Chemical Company is contributing to environmental sustainability and how direct modeling is improving the design of a pellet stove.
Electronics are pervasive in our world today. From electric machines to high-speed electronic devices to antennas and wireless communication, the demand continues to grow. However, designing innovative products to work reliably in the real world becomes more difficult with the need to reduce energy consumption, avoid interference with other devices and decrease development time. Leading companies leverage engineering simulation to quickly bring to market pioneering products that meet and exceed expectations.
In 2017, Synopsys® and ANSYS partnered to take the best of ANSYS’ power integrity and reliability offerings and create an integrated flow with Synopsys implementation to drive robust semiconductor design optimization. Following the release of RedHawk Analysis Fusion by Synopsys in 2018, customers have shared positive feedback on productivity and design quality impact that have helped drive further innovations on this platform. We sat down with John Lee, vice president and general manager of the semiconductors division at ANSYS, and Jacob Avidan, senior vice president of signoff products at Synopsys, to get their views on the results of this collaboration and how the ANSYS–Synopsys collaboration helps address the challenges of emerging technologies.
Keeping a smartphone from overheating is becoming more challenging as increasing numbers of transistors and devices are made to fit into a small, sleek design. Qualcomm engineers have developed a way to use simulation to create a smaller model of the power sources in a smartphone. This model can be solved in a fraction of the time of a full thermal analysis, so that they can look at more operating scenarios. The goal is to create a dynamic power management strategy to selectively direct power where it is needed and keep temperatures down.
