Smart connected devices are everywhere, in homes, in transportation, and at work. This means electronic system design (ESD) is having a greater influence on almost every type of product requiring new simulation tools to help achieve electronic, electrical, mechanical, thermal, and connectivity goals. Altair’s simulation-driven design tools enable your team of specialized engineers to collaborate across all aspects of printed circuit board development from concept to manufacturing. Our products streamline your process, eliminate design iterations, and reduce time-to-market.
Altair® PollEx™ accelerates the development of today’s smart, connected, and tightly packaged electronic products. PollEx enables teams to review and improve board layouts, and drive designs with simulation tools for signal integrity, power integrity, EMI vulnerability, and ESD protection, without relying on "rules of thumb." Used by global industry leaders to increases the efficiency of PCB fabrication, assembly, and end-of-line testing, PollEx improves performance, enables teamwork, and enhances collaboration to ensure timing, performance, reliability, and compliance targets are met.
Altair® Feko® enables teams to optimize wireless connectivity, including 5G, ensure electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and perform radar cross section (RCS) and scattering analysis. It is the leading tool for understanding and optimizing antenna placement and coupling. Installed antenna performance is heavily dependent on how and where antennas are integrated. Feko is extensively used for immunity and emissions analysis of cables, antennas, and other devices. It simulates wireless coverage and enables radio network planning for a building, campus, city, or region.
Altair® SimLab® accurately analyzes the performance of complex assemblies under real world conditions before physical prototyping. Highly automated workflows drastically reduce the time spent creating models and interpreting results. Confidently identify and correct potential design issues earlier in development with thermal analysis that doesn’t require advanced CFD knowledge. Automate structural stress, vibration, and drop test performance assessments. SimLab even models fiber orientation during the injection molding process of plastic enclosures and manages structural solver coupling.
Accelerate the design of motors, sensors, actuators, and wireless charging with Altair® Flux® simulation to elevate performance and reduce power consumption. Altair® FluxMotor® is dedicated to the fast exploration of new motor concept designs. Integrate models for mechanical, electrical, and controller subsystems to simulate a full system with Altair® Activate® and exchange models to co-simulate with other CAE tools using functional mockup interface (FMI).
Circuit simulation plays a strategic role in the schematic capture phase of EDA workflows. The enhanced proprietary version of SPICE, based on the open-source industry standard, with access to the library of digital component suppliers, delivers a more interactive schematic in which easy changes of component values, tolerances, frequency response, or time periods enable an accurate verification of the electronic circuit performance.
Altair® Embed® is a proven tool for model-based firmware development of embedded systems including analog and digital communication systems at the physical layer motor control, IoT devices, and vision systems. With Embed, you can design, analyze, and simulate your embedded system using block diagrams and state charts, then automatically generate compact and optimized code to run on an extensive selection of microcontrollers.
Trusted for semiconductor design and EDA, Altair® Accelerator™ is the industry’s fastest enterprise job scheduler — with scalable, event-driven architecture for highest throughput.
With Altair Breeze™, you can quickly solve software deployment problems and resolve file and network dependencies. With detailed data for storage exports and summary reports for sharing, Altair Breeze identifies good and bad I/O for easy wins.
As distributed systems and compute clusters become more complex, the need for monitoring is increasingly important. Altair Mistral™ is the leading application monitoring tool for HPC and scientific computing.
