Wireless and RF

Ansys high-frequency electromagnetics design software enables you to design, simulate and validate the performance of antennas and RF and microwave components. The integrated microwave circuit and system modeling capabilities have direct integration to our EM solvers delivering a platform for full-system verification of next-generation RF and microwave designs.

PCB and electronic packaging

The Ansys Chip-Package-System (CPS) design flow delivers unparalleled simulation capacity and speed for power integrity, signal integrity and EMI analysis of high-speed electronic devices. Automated thermal analysis and integrated structural analysis capabilities complete the industry’s most comprehensive chip-aware and system-aware simulation solution across the chip-package-board.

Electromechanical and power electronics

Ansys electromechanical and power electronics simulation software is ideal for applications which depend on the robust integration of motors, sensors, and actuators with electronics controls. Ansys software simulates the interactions between these components, and the design flow incorporates thermal and mechanical analysis for evaluating cooling strategies and analyzing critical mechanical effects like noise-vibration-harshness (NVH).

Electronics Thermal Management

Ansys electronics thermal management solutions leverage advanced solver technology with robust, automatic meshing to enable you to rapidly perform heat transfer and fluid flow simulation for convective and forced air cooling strategies. Our solutions help you design cooling strategies to avoid excessive temperatures that degrade the performance of IC packages, printed circuit boards (PCBs), data centers, power electronics and electric motors.
