Electronics

ANSYS electronics solutions help you design innovative electrical and electronic products faster and more cost-effectively than ever before. Our industry leading electromagnetic field, circuit, systems and multiphysics simulation software fully automates the design process so you can better understand how your products behave. You can quickly optimize your design using simulation instead of wasting time building and testing costly prototypes. So whether it's a computer chip, a circuit board, a cell phone, an electronic component in an automobile or an entire communications system, ANSYS software can help you design better products.

Typical Applications

Electromotors, valves and electromagnets are analyzed under real operating conditions. For example, the torque ripple of motors can be significantly reduced and a mechanical and acoustic load (noise) can be avoided.

In addition to improving the field management, you can make the material application more economical.

Thermal strength and lifetime can be improved.

They can assure optimal installation conditions and avoid external disturbances.

Product properties can be improved, for example, by selective switching of the contacts and shields.

They can verify EMC compliance, ensure the signal integrity of data transmission applications and investigate power integrity to ensure a reliable power supply even at high frequencies.

In addition to an increase in the signal quality, such as antennas, filters and couplers, the targeted identification and camouflage of objects is also facilitated.

Features

ANSYS offers a comprehensive and extensible library of material models for non-linear, anisotropic and temperature-dependent material behavior as well as 3D vector hysteresis. Integrated adaptive networking methods are also provided to ensure robust results for static and dynamic analysis (Maxwell, HFSS). In addition, the user-friendly implemented characterization of motion effects in electromagnetic field tasks (rotation, translation, pendulum). The functionality is rounded off by a comprehensive application-optimized element technology (such as mixed finite and bounding elements) as well as a fast equations solution in 2D and 3D. Parallel and simultaneous computing also enables high performance computing (HPC).

Predefined processes, such as rotating electrical machines (RMxprt), power electronics (PExprt) or antennas (Antenna Design Kit), save time and ensure the highest possible accuracy.

By customizing, you can align the CAE system more precisely to your needs. For this, several language standards are available: VHDL-AMS, Modelica and Python. In addition, you have free choice in the potential formulations - for maximum accuracy and best performance, especially for parameter studies. In addition, the embedded calculator allows flexible access to all important integral results.

Matrix and solver couplings allow the connection of different physical domains. In addition, the integrated and automatable derivation of behavioral models for system simulations as well as the co-simulation with the circuit simulator ANSYS Simplorer and the fluid solution ANSYS CFD.

ANSYS Modules

 

The following, partly specialized modules are available for the large number of demanding simulation tasks in the field of electromagnetics:

For the simulation of electromagnetic fields with the focus on electrical drive technology and energy transfer: For the efficient design of rotating machines, this module can be combined with the expert solution ANSYS RMxprt. The integrated formulations for the analysis of moving magnet systems and the detailed description of eddy current tasks provide a high degree of performance and flexibility.

Powerful circuit simulator for the description of task settings: For the design of transformers and cores it can be extended by the expert tool ANSYS PExprt. Within the framework of interdisciplinary system simulation, ANSYS Simplorer is the central interface between software and hardware design: with a comprehensive component library, the possibility to implement existing models from VHDL-AMS and Modelica and the comprehensive interfaces to the ANSYS field solvers.

For the calculation of high-frequency electromagnetic field applications. This includes the emission of electromagnetic waves as well as the transmission behavior of passive components. The adaptive networking ensures an automatic adaptation of the network used and thus the desired solution quality. Powerful equalizers for FEM and integral equations in the frequency domain as well as the transient solvers ensure the performance for wide application fields.

To analyze the transmission and radiation behavior at the PCB and package level. The specialization in planar structures ensures a high performance of the numerics and the user.

For efficient characterization of parasitic effects with direct data export for system analysis. The focus is on packages, cables, power rails or touch screens, and allows the rapid extraction of behavioral models.
