The Role of Simulation in Innovative Electronic Design

As products in the marketplace incorporate more and more complexity, the product design process must keep pace to ensure safe, efficient and reliable integration of complicated systems, subsystems and components. Few products today involve a mere single physics; most encompass multidisciplinary behaviors and interactions (with subsequent, sometimes unpredictable, cause and effect).

Though simulation tools are powerful, computational restraints limit the use of high-fidelity models for every step in the design process. Adding embedded software to control product behavior further complicates development. As a result, engineering teams need specific models, simulation tools and standards that work together seamlessly to enable robust and cost-effective product development. Best-practice processes help to reduce physical testing, as well as ensure that the results can be shared across global teams and efficiently applied to future product development. 

Twenty-first century products are incredibly sophisticated and feature-rich, and consumers have grown to expect advanced functionality even in simple devices. Much of this built-in product complexity comes from electrification: components that are powered, actuated, sensed, and controlled with electrical and electronic technologies.

Every day, ultra-competitive product development organizations create ever-more-innovative devices to meet demand. These products deliver more content along with greater efficiency, improved safety, better performance, increased reliability, greater connectedness and more intelligence.

Testimonials

  • I would like to hereby express my vote of confidence in Qfinsoft, in their ability to service and provide a strong support to us as a company.  We have been a customer of Qfinsoft for over a year and I am pleased to compliment them on their impeccable service offered to us thus far

    - Nico Gunther, Powertech Transformers

  • Since the introduction of ANSYS, more students are using first principles and FEA to validate their designs. This year, more than 60% of the projects were using FEA as a standard approach for numerical calculation. This number shows the huge impact ANSYS, had on University of Pretoria. FEA is not anymore a specialised tool for few users but a standard engineering tool easily integrated in the design process.

    - Francesco Pietra, University of Pretoria

  • For their consulting, training and technical support, Qfinsoft (Pty) Ltd must be the first choice of any firm looking for CAE experts

    - Prof G Akdogan, Process Engineering, University of Stellenbosch

  • At Aerospace, we have successfully used the ANSYS suite of tools to design high-performance gas turbine engines. Throughout this program, Qfinsoft provided valuable support and assistance to accelerate the development of our models. Their accessibility, short-turn around times and willingness to go beyond what is expected make them an effective partner on our projects.
