Ansys Launches HFSS Mesh Fusion, Redefines Product Development by Enabling Design of Entire Systems

Ansys’ new breakthrough technology helps engineers improve product design for advanced applications ranging from autonomous vehicles to 5G communications

PITTSBURGH, PA, January 21, 2021 – Ansys (NASDAQ: ANSS) is helping engineering teams to mesh and solve larger designs than ever with the launch of Ansys HFSS Mesh Fusion. Cutting development expenses and expediting the development of leading-edge products, HFSS Mesh Fusion drives rapid and fully coupled simulation of complex EM systems — without compromising the design or fidelity.

Modern electronic products are more sophisticated than ever, with higher density, lower voltage margins and more advanced processes. To deliver innovation, engineers must increase functionality and maintain or even decrease power consumption within a smaller form factor. As these designs become more challenging, engineers must solve complex interactions between components and across systems, critical for designing cutting-edge artificial intelligence machine learning, autonomous vehicle, 5G communications, high-performance computing and Industrial Internet of Things applications.

HFSS Mesh Fusion, available in Ansys HFSS 2021 R1, helps engineers combine integrated circuits (IC), packaging, connectors, printed circuit boards, antennas and platform in a single Ansys HFSS analysis to predict EM interactions. HFSS Mesh Fusion bypasses previous barriers by applying optimal meshing technology at the component level, parallelized across cores, clusters or within Ansys® Cloud™. A breakthrough solver technology then extracts a fully coupled, uncompromised, full-wave EM matrix.  By enabling much more complex designs to be solved, companies can confidently push the limits of performance to create state-of-the-art products.

“Increasing levels of electronic system integration are leading to a greater demand for comprehensive EM system analysis,” said Sangyun Kim, vice president, Foundry Design Technology Team at Samsung Electronics. “Ansys HFSS Mesh Fusion makes it possible for our talented engineering teams to create optimal designs, shrink design cycles and cost and increase the value that we deliver to our customers. Leveraging Mesh Fusion, we are innovating highly advanced designs that were previously unimaginable. In fact, for the customer’s latest flat panel TV, we simulated the EM transmission of an entire room.”

 

HFSS Mesh Fusion helps engineers swiftly overcome the most challenging design obstacles to deliver best-in-class products to customers.

“Ansys HFSS can solve any structure, regardless of complexity, enabling creative out-of-the-box designs. The new HFSS Mesh Fusion technology will allow us to tackle even more comprehensive, uncompromised simulations with HFSS, further validating it as our ‘virtual laboratory’,” said Clyde Callewaert, senior engineer at Herrick Technology Labs. “Because with HFSS in the loop, we go into the lab to confirm results, not discover them.”

By solving the most complex EM models, HFSS Mesh Fusion delivers critical design data that improves end products.

“HFSS Mesh Fusion helps IC designers effectively manage the capacity, complexity, dimensional range and density of geometric detail in a fully coupled EM simulation,” said John Lee, vice president and general manager at Ansys. “This empowers engineers to break the old rules, innovate leading-edge designs at higher frequencies and within tighter form factors, tape out with confidence and deliver trailblazing products with more functionality than ever thought possible. This supports numerous highly sophisticated applications, including 5G communications, autonomous driving and many more.”

SLX FPGA: Accelerate the Journey from C/C++ to FPGA

Sponsored by Silexica

High-level synthesis (HLS) brings incredible power to FPGA design. But harnessing the full power of HLS with FPGAs can be difficult even for the most experienced engineering teams. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Jordon Inkeles of Silexica about using the SLX FPGA tool to truly harness the power of HLS with FPGAs, getting better results faster - regardless of whether you are approaching from the hardware or software domain.
