Tackling Next Generation CPS Design Challenges

System design and even system integration have taken on a whole new meaning with the latest trends in mobile and wearable computing. Integrating the compute power formerly associated with super-computers into a wrist band puts entirely new challenges on engineers, as they struggle with ensuring  signal and power integrity, as well as controlling the thermal profile. For these next-generation designs, full system analysis in the form of a Chip-Package-System (CPS) co-analysis is not an option anymore — it is an absolute necessity in order to achieve convergence.

5 Influential Must Read Articles for 2015

As the ANSYS Advantage team gathers contributions and best practices for an issue focused on healthcare simulation in 2015, it’s worth revisiting our 2014 feature on a new heart valve replacement produced with simulation that could change the way we look at open-heart surgery. Much of what we covered — and uncovered — last year will continue to be relevant in the coming 12 months. Check out what moved us and our readers in 2014, from drones to the Internet of Things (IoT) to those aforementioned developments in heart-valve replacement procedures. These articles span industries including aerospace and defense, healthcare, higher education, and high tech but are important to everyone.

So, take a look at 2014’s top five articles, many of which will influence industry and our daily lives in 2015 and beyond. Continue reading
