Commercial companies, research institutes and academic organizations are actively pursuing goals related to reducing power consumption, decreasing emissions and creating new methods to utilize existing energy resources. At the same time, engineering students around the world are honing their skills and developing new vehicles, often as part of team competitions, that use the latest technology to transform our method of travel. These students create solutions to real-world problems, and will become the next generation of workplace leaders to engineer energy innovation.
Automotive electronics systems depend on an ever-increasing number of electronic sensors and processing elements, which allow for 360-degree surveillance and object identification/classification. Designing and verifying these systems is, however, as complex as the systems themselves.
This white paper examines how automotive chip designers can achieve the stringent safety and reliability requirements for advanced FinFET designs. It explores analysis solutions for electromigration reliability (EM), electrostatic discharge (ESD), thermal reliability, statistical electromigration budgeting (SEB) and functional safety.
Driven by mobile computing and communications, the SoC have been growing very rapidly in
silicon integration technology scaling, advanced low power techniques while meeting higher
performance requirements using a variety of packaging technologies. The internet of things
(IoT) is opening up new applications with connected devices and systems, where low power,
high performance and reliability are paramount. Since the impact of temperature on power,
performance and reliability is huge, accurate thermal analysis is a requirement for the design
Today’s electronics systems are highly complex. From automotive to portable devices (smartphones, tablets, fitness devices) and rapidly growing internet of things (IoT) applications, cost and time-to-market are critical factors that determine a company’s success or failure in this competitive landscape. At the core of every electronics system is a chip that has to meet multiple conflicting requirements such as increased functionality, best power efficiency, highest reliability, lowest design cost and short design schedule. Meeting these requirements poses a major challenge, especially for system on chips (SoCs) that are designed using advanced processes. Ensuring that the SoCs meet power and reliability requirements and that they function properly within the electronics system requires a simulation-based solution supported by a suite of accurate multi-domain models.
A common difficulty in simulating complex fluid flow problems is that some geometries can not be well-represented using a single, contiguous mesh. In many cases, different geometrical features are best represented by different mesh types. Preparing this mesh can be time consuming and complicated. Additionally, the large, poorly structured meshes that result can take excessive time to solve and can result in reduced accuracy.
Achates Power has developed a radically improved two-stroke opposed-piston internal combustion engine that increases fuel efficiency and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. ANSYS simulation tools help the company to shorten design iteration time, minimize hardware prototypes and reduce the development time of new engines by approximately one year.
