The Internet of Things (IoT) represents an eleven trillion dollar opportunity. The opportunity will only be fully realized if engineers use best practices to design robust and reliable products. In this e-book we explain the critical design challenges for designing smarter connected products and how ANSYS solutions can help.
The performance and reliability of an electronics system largely depend on the system’s immunity from an electrostatic discharge (ESD) event. Because the components, custom chips and package come from various sources — and often from different companies — they are usually designed by separate teams working in silos and in accordance with predefined margins. The ESD Association estimates that damage from electrostatic discharge may range from $500 million to about $5 billion for ruined devices alone. This does not count indirect economic damage, such as system degradation that can negatively impact efficiency and operational issues that can affect customer relationships long-term.
To protect against ESD in complex, high-speed technologies requiring careful signal path design, simulation has become essential in electronics system development. A holistic methodology effectively and efficiently locates and mitigates ESD risks well before hardware prototypes are available, saving teams time, effort and money. This approach can lead to more reliable and efficient systems in crucial applications such as automotive, avionics, 5G and, yes, in-flight entertainment systems. Learn more about the challenges and solutions for addressing system-level ESD in this white paper.
Ansoft has a long history of developing leading simulation solutions for the electronics industry.
A 16x speedup on a compute farm delivers time and cost savings in the design of traction motors for HEVs and EVs.
Connecting to Ansys Cloud enables organizations to implement high-fidelity simulations much faster in high-performance computing (HPC) environments than in local machines/datacenters. Users can submit simulation jobs for Ansys electromagnetic tools such as Ansys HFSS, Ansys SIwave, Ansys Maxwell and Ansys Q3D Extractor from the Ansys Electronics Desktop to the Microsoft Azure hosted Ansys Cloud. Read this application brief to learn about the details and benefits of running EM simulations in Ansys Cloud.
Optimizing the design of traction motors used to drive electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) is challenging because automakers have little experience in this area. Electromagnetic simulation plays a critical role by evaluating the performance of design concepts, such as by computing the torque profile of the machine. In the past, it took hundreds of hours to perform electromagnetic simulation on a single design iteration, which hurt productivity by leaving engineers waiting for results. General Motors (GM) developed a high-performance computing (HPC) environment using surplus hardware with a 32-core compute farm that provided a 16 timesx speedup on electromagnetic simulation, reducing solution time to less than five hours.
