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.

The publication reveals how expert engineers tackle issues like electromagnetic interference (EMI) / electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), perform full-system and deep analysis of subcomponents to find potential problems, and reduce time for signal integrity (SI) analysis. For example:

Ensuring Electromagnetic Compatibility:  A workflow developed by STMicroelectronics combines electromagnetic field simulation with circuit simulation to determine EMI/EMC issues before physical prototyping.

Crossed Signals: Smart Modular Technologies engineers leverage the ANSYS Electronics Desktop platform to reduce the time required to perform signal integrity analysis of a high-speed printed circuit board from days to hours.

Enhanced Detection of Concealed Weapons: To develop higher resolution, next-generation full-body millimeter-wave airport scanners, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers use simulation models to reduce design exploration times.

Inside Story: Inatel and Embraer engineers are developing new ways to install aircraft antennas that could save fuel.

Other articles reveal that Delphi engineers employ simulation to improve internal combustion engine emissions and fuel economy performance, Airbus Defence and Space uses fluid–structure interaction simulation to manage fuel sloshing for spacecraft, EM-motive GmbH optimizes a custom engine for hybrid and electric vehicles, and much more.
