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.
As organizations strive to deliver innovative smart products for the digital economy they must solve a huge number of design challenges and determine appropriate trade-offs. The only practical way to do this is through engineering simulation.
Smart functionality and connectivity are no longer an option for product development teams — they have quickly become a competitive imperative. How can engineering teams quickly master the complexities of power efficiency, signal integrity and other design challenges as they deliver ongoing innovations? The answer is simulation.
Simulation in critical in engineering the smart, connected products that the market demands.
It costs hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars to launch a satellite into a geosynchronous orbit where it hovers above a point on earth for observation or communications. Now, World View’s balloon-borne Stratollite vehicles can carry large payloads to altitudes up to 95,000 feet and park them there for weeks or months at a cost orders of magnitude less than a satellite or other comparable technologies. World View engineers saved an estimated eight months and about $600,000 by using ANSYS simulation software to determine the right design before building and testing a prototype.
Microsatellites represent a new opportunity to provide connectivity for the Internet of Things, as well as capture images and data from space, at a relatively low cost — but the challenge is getting them into orbit in a timely and cost-effective manner. By making satellite launches both routine and affordable, startup Vector is opening up the “space race” to a new generation of small and midsized businesses that can deploy entire swarms of tiny satellites. With its risk-taking engineering strategy, Vector is poised to disrupt the satellite industry, one launch at a time.
