When designing reliable, leading-edge products, companies must take many factors into account. In product engineering, one of the most common concerns is temperature which affects equipment efficiency and performance, and could lead to failure as well as health and safety issues. The latest issue of ANSYS Advantage magazine reveals how companies across a wide range of industries are using simulation to address thermal issues. Continue reading
On the 18th of February, we’re hosting a webinar showcasing some exciting new methods to increase the number of ways reliable electronic systems can be designed. You can register now but first let me tell you a little about why it’s important.
The proliferation of electronics into every product arena can’t be denied. Electronics bring huge benefits in terms of features and functionality to pretty much any device. This means that electronics are being placed in more varied environments — and subjected to more demanding loads — than ever before. Continue reading
What do antennas, sensors and integrated circuits all have in common in an IoT-connected device? They are all fighting for the same power supply resources. Indeed, power consumption may be the biggest challenge facing designers of mobile devices for the Internet of Things. As battery sizes shrink to allow for smaller form-factors, battery lifetime becomes critical to meeting cost, performance, and reliability requirements. Continue reading
