Competitive advantage thanks to numerical simulation: the PLUS for your electronics design
Demands in respect of the scope of performance, reliability and energy efficiency of electronic components are increasing, along with the costs of development and production. By using product simulation, hardware development processes are placed on a secure footing from the outset, offering benefits along the entire line: optimal design, shorter development time, lower costs and faster time-to-market – a clear competitive advantage in your market environment.
Benefits of numerical simulation in electronics development
Electric reliability of PCBs
Thermal reliability in power electronics
Operating and environmental stresses, such as temperature, vibration, misuse, shock and humidity, affect the mechanical reliability of electronic systems. Knowledge of physical processes in the assembly and interconnection technology environment helps in the creation of robust designs for production.
Using the simulation tools in the ANSYS portfolio, various failure mechanisms can be simulated in detail and the reliability of designs can be quickly and comprehensively evaluated. In this way, potential weaknesses at soldered connections, vias and PCB stack-ups or even within components are already apparent in advance of development.
Questions regarding power and signal integrity and EMC analyses of PCBs are routine challenges for PCB designers. If limits are to be tested or new functional principles in space developed, the design rules typically used to ensure reliable development are not enough.
Physical product simulation in such instances, for example, provides the necessary insights into the power supply of the designed layouts. Hot spots (areas of high current density) are identified and potential room for improvement is indicated. In signal transmission, possible impurities can be found along conducting paths, thus ensuring signal integrity.
High performance in a compact space: thermal management as well as component and device air conditioning are product development challenges for power electronics components. ANSYS Icepak offers a comprehensive 3D simulation solution for considering complex physical problems as well as the thermal and flow design of electrical and electronic devices and systems. Whether applied to fan management or heatsink dimensioning – simulation makes it easier to choose the right components.
