Simulation is a key component in the development of electronic products


Simulation solutions from Ansys make it possible to comprehensively analyze and evaluate the behavior of electronic components even before the first prototype is built. This results in short development times and lower costs.

A general introduction to electronic simulation

We are in a time of rapid technological innovation: Electromobility is gaining mass appeal, 5G is revolutionizing wireless technology, and autonomous vehicles will soon be a part of everyday life.

Alongside these advancements, the miniaturization of electronic and electromechanical assemblies also continues apace. New functions must be integrated into ever-smaller spaces, switching frequencies and data rates are on the rise and new antenna technologies are required. This presents hardware developers in the electronics industry with demanding technical challenges. 

Ansys products enable comprehensive analyses of the electrical, magnetic, thermal and mechanical behavior of electronic and electromechanical components, assemblies and systems. Intuitive couplings between various field, switching and system simulations make it possible to examine all of the important characteristics of the design in the different physical domains.

Simulations for wireless and HF

For high-frequency electromagnetic analyses, Ansys offers complete simulation solutions for evaluating the performance of antennae and HF components.

Analysis of PCBs and packages

Ansys provides comprehensive simulation solutions for the evaluation of PCBs and packages in terms of their electrical, thermal and mechanical operating behavior. Power integrity, signal integrity, EMC, cooling, and mechanical reliability are all evaluated.

Power electronics

Heat dissipation concepts and switching behavior play a central role in the design of power electronics applications. Ansys electronics solutions make it possible to both evaluate thermal management and illustrate parasitic effects and their influence on the switching behavior.

Electromechanics and sensors

Sensors and actuators are important elements of modern mechatronic systems. Simulation with Ansys software makes it possible ensure the reliable integration of sensors, motors and actuators into an electronic control unit.
