ANSYS Accelerates Electronic Product Design at GUC

Global Unichip Corp. has adopted ANSYS to support its unmatched combination of advanced technology, low-power and embedded CPU design capabilities. “GUC is committed to providing world-class custom ASICs to help elevate prospective systems and integrated circuit (IC) companies’ market-leading positions,” said Louis Lin, senior vice president, GUC. “As IC manufacturing processes become more complex, there are more elements to simulate and compute during chip design and verification to ensure reliability and minimize power loss. ANSYS helps us minimize this complexity, speed our time to market and reduce development costs. Our partnership with ANSYS has been a cornerstone in helping our clients succeed in the IC market.”

ANSYS to Acquire LSTC

Today ANSYS announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Livermore Software Technology Corporation (LSTC), the premier provider of explicit dynamics and other advanced finite element analysis technology. Once closed, the acquisition will empower ANSYS customers to solve a new class of engineering challenges, including developing safer automobiles, aircraft and trains while reducing or even eliminating the need for costly physical testing.

ANSYS Cloud HPC Increases Simulation throughput for Hundreds of Organizations

Engineers are unlocking increased compute capacity to achieve advancements in 5G, autonomous systems, electric vehicles, and other global megatrends thanks to ANSYS Cloud HPC, powered by Microsoft Azure. Available from directly within ANSYS engineering simulation software, ANSYS Cloud is helping organizations rapidly run high-fidelity simulations, shortening development cycles and increasing time to market. “”Organizations benefit from Azure’s vast number of on-demand compute cores to run large parallel and tightly coupled simulations, enabled by infrastructure specifically designed for HPC featuring RDMA InfiniBand. With Azure, ANSYS customers get performance without sacrificing security as sensitive proprietary data remains highly secure and protected by technologies that prohibit unauthorized access.”

Advancing manufacturing with simulation-based digital twins

The concept of a digital twin—the mirroring of a physical object with a virtual object created by simulation-based engineering—has been around since NASA began using numerical simulation technology and comparing the results to ground-based physical models as it developed and managed early spacecraft. “Today, digital twins are hot—a subject of intense interest and investment. Gartner puts digital twins fourth on its list of the top 10 strategic technology trends for 2019.”
