High-Frequency Solution Combines Technologies from ANSYS, Inc. and ICEM CFD Engineering to Serve Electronics Industry
Canonsburg, PA - November 20, 2001 - ANSYS,K, Inc. (NASDAQ: ANSS), the global innovator of simulation software and technologies aimed at optimizing customer product development processes, today announced AI*EMAX, a state-of-the-art high-frequency electromagnetic analysis solution for the electronics industry.
AI*EMAX combines the ANSYS, Inc. expertise in simulation analysis with the ingenuity of ICEM CFD Engineering technology for pre- and post-processing to provide a robust solution aimed at the electronics engineer involved in the design of RF/microwave passive components and circuits, electromagnetic interference and compatibility (EMI/EMC), antenna design, and object identification. The product features an easy-to-use graphical user interface, a powerful internal modeler with automatic meshing tools, powerful ANSYS, Inc. solvers, and robust post-processing capabilities enhancing design speed and flexibility. AI*EMAX offers Direct CADTM plug-ins for Catia IV, Pro/Engineer(TM) and SolidWorks that enable users to build and prepare models within their CAD environment to be exported to AI*EMAX for meshing. The solution also produces a batch-input file and database compatible with ANSYS/Multiphysics, used to simulate coupled physics phenomena such as RF heating.
"ANSYS, Inc. has developed a comprehensive offering for the electronics industry that provides the best meshing, solving, and post-processing tools in one solution, greatly increasing user speed and flexibility," stated Mike Wheeler, vice president of marketing for ANSYS, Inc. "The application of computational tools combined with the ANSYS, Inc. technology makes this solution a true industry innovation. We are confident that electronics engineers will come to rely on this tool to enhance their design processes."
AI*EMAX provides full visualization of the electromagnetic field/wave in the finite element modeling space. Automated post-processing calculations provide electric and magnetic field intensity, quality factor, scattering matrix parameters, voltage, current, impedance, radar cross section, far and near electromagnetic fields beyond the modeled domain, antenna pattems and Joule losses.
AI*Solutions from ANSYS, Inc., combines the state-of-the-art, technology from ICEM CFD Engineering with ANSYS, Inc.'s simulation expertise to provide product development teams the latest simulation products and technology platforms. AI*Solutions is continually expanding to include:
