Getting Power Management Right and Women in Tech

Getting power management right in the era of heterogeneous SoCs is a multi-pronged effort, there’s no getting around it. There are many technical avenues to managing the power in heterogenous SoCs today, as well as a few human ones.

Engineering teams daily try to squeeze more and more power from their designs, which many times includes adding human resources and expertise to the project.

Take an example where a design team leader gets the mandate to include high level synthesis in the design methodology.

Simulation Innovations: From Systems Simulation to Autonomous Vehicles to Digital Twins

The role of 3-D physics, systems simulation and embedded software is expanding rapidly into new industries and disciplines. A few years ago, 3-D physics simulation was limited to specific departments within organizations, and often these departments did not coordinate with each other on product development activities. Fast forward to today, and much has changed and must continue to evolve in order for companies to remain competitive in the changing landscape of product development. Integrated 3-D physics, systems simulation and embedded software tools are of the utmost importance — especially when tackling the challenges of quickly and accurately developing the technology driving digital twins and autonomous vehicles.

Join us in Paris for our Innovations Conference on December 5-6 and learn how our customers are using simulation to bring their products to market faster.

Chinook ETS Wind-Powered Car Breaks World Record with the Help of ANSYS

Chinook ETS is a team of student engineers from École de technologie supérieure in Montreal, Canada. We are trying to design and build a prototype wind-powered car with the highest possible efficiency for the Racing Aeolus event held in Den Helder, Netherlands. Our goal is not only to perform well during the race but also to develop efficient wind turbines through numeric simulations, new composites fabrication processes, advanced electronics and out-of-the-box thinking. ANSYS simulation solutions play a key role in our design efforts.chinook team with wind powered car Continue reading

Leveraging Benefits of the Hybrid Cloud for ANSYS Workloads

Engineers at every company are trying to innovate faster while holding down costs. Modeling and engineering simulations are the backbone of these efforts. Engineers may wish to run ANSYS Fluent simulations at scale, or many different permutations simultaneously, that may require more computing resources than are readily available. Hybrid HPC computing combines public and on-premise compute resources to offer organizations a flexible, cost-effective approach to meet these requirements.

How HyperXite Used ANSYS Simulation to Advance in the Hyperloop Competition

The Hyperloop from SpaceX is the future of fast, affordable and sustainable transportation.  HyperXite, our team from the University of California, Irvine, which is competing in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition, is using ANSYS Fluent and ANSYS Mechanical simulation solutions to design and build a 1:2 scale Hyperloop pod.

If successful, the pod eventually will be able to transport 840 people between Los Angeles and San Francisco at 760 mph while floating on a cushion of air. Of the 120 teams in the competition, we were the only team in the top five at SpaceX design weekend to propose air levitation as our driving force. Continue reading

Pervasive Simulation for Electronics in ANSYS Advantage

ansys advantage electronicsElectronics are everywhere. Amazing innovations such as driver assistance systems (ADAS), IoT, 5G communications, hybrid propulsion and others all depend on electronics. Engineers and designers in almost every industry, must account for electromagnetic fields to design, optimize and deliver products quickly to market.

As radio frequency (RF) and wireless communications components are integrated into compact packages to meet smaller footprint requirements while improving power efficiency, electromagnetic field simulation is the only way to make these trade-offs.  Simulation enables innovative ideas, that can push products beyond their traditional limits, to be tested and realized without the burden of prototype costs and time.

The latest issue of ANSYS Advantage features articles from industry leaders who make the most of electromagnetic field simulation to develop next-generation products and deliver them to market quickly.

Interference-Free Design of Electronic Devices

Have you ever relaxed on the patio on a beautiful autumn day while using your mobile phone to talk to a friend, stream some relaxing music over the phone’s WiFi connection and maybe use the built-in GPS location capability while you map out your next family road trip, all at the same time?

Just think about how amazing it is that you can do all of that — and more — with a device that you hold in the palm of your hand. Your mobile phone has more computing power than the computers that put man on the moon, and more wireless connectivity than we would have thought possible less than a generation ago!

Free Performance Benchmark Program

Whenever I speak to our customers who want to run our software on something more powerful than their desktop computers, I hear the need for quantitative proof of HPC benchmark tests. If you have the same need, you can now get that proof, and it won’t cost you a thing.

We’ve established a Free Performance Benchmark program. Instead of demonstrating evidence of the benefits of HPC on standard benchmark models, we want to show you the time savings that HPC can make possible for your very own model. Continue reading
