Reduce Time-to-Market Using Rapid Design Iteration

One of the biggest challenges in the consumer electronics industry is reducing the time-to-market given the highly competitive landscape and there is a stronger emphasis on virtual simulations over physical prototyping. However, performing virtual simulations on large complicated assemblies can be a tedious and time-consuming process due to the complexity of the assembly. This webinar presents Altair’s CAD-based simulation process that can drastically reduce the time taken to build and solve large complicated electronic components.

Altair Inspire – Altair SimSolid Analysis

Tips and Tricks You can now use SimSolid as your solver when running a structural analysis in Inspire. This gives you the ability to edit geometry, which was not possible in the stand-alone version of SimSolid, as well as yielding significantly faster results when running an analysis in Inspire. Linear static and normal modes analyses are supported when using the SimSolid solver, as well as all boundary conditions and results visualizations. SimSolid extends Inspire’s solver capacity and makes it much faster to analyze large assemblies and complex parts.

Rapid Structural Evaluation of Complex Electronics Assemblies

One of the biggest challenges in the consumer electronics industry is reducing the time-to-market given the highly competitive landscape. Given the lack of time, companies are becoming more and more dependent on virtual simulations rather than physical prototyping to inform the design process. However, performing virtual simulations on large complicated assemblies can also be a tedious and time-consuming process due to geometry simplification and meshing. Additionally, rapid changes in material, geometry, and assemblies complicate the model building process and make it difficult to generate answers comparing various design iterations. This webinar seeks to introduce a CAD-based simulation process that drastically reduce the time it takes to make informed design decisions on large complicated electronic components. The methods presented in this webinar enable both the design and engineering teams to rapidly explore the performance of large electronic assemblies in seconds as opposed to hours.

Meaningful Results Earlier in the Design Process with SimSolid

Especially in the early design stages of product development, variants change quicker than conventional FEA tools and processes can keep up with. This is even more apparent when full assemblies or complex structures have to be evaluated. Simulation can be a powerful tool to help inform product development decisions, but you need fast, accurate results in order to react at the speed of design.
