Revolutionizing the Electronic Design Industry with Ansys and AWS – High Performance Computing News Analysis | insideHPC

By Asmaa Lapouge, Cloud Product Marketing Manager, Ansys

The electronics industry operates in a highly competitive landscape, where companies are constantly striving to launch products faster while meeting evolving consumer needs. However, this quest for speed and innovation comes with challenges. Electronics engineers often encounter complex projects, tight schedules, and limited resources. Traditional simulation tools tied to local hardware struggle to keep up with these demands, hampering engineers’ ability to iterate quickly and efficiently.

However, with the advent of cloud-based simulation tools, electronics engineers now have a powerful ally to overcome these obstacles. This blog explores the challenges faced by electrical engineers and how they like cloud-based simulation tools Ansys Gateway powered by AWS can significantly improve productivity, efficiency and innovation in electronic design.

Running a physical prototype in the electronics industry can be a costly endeavor. From designing and manufacturing custom components to testing and iterating, every step costs money. The need for specialized equipment, skilled labor and materials further drives up costs. Additionally, unexpected challenges and revisions during the prototyping phase can lead to additional expense. Despite the cost, physical prototypes remain critical for validating designs, ensuring functionality, and optimizing product performance before mass production.

Electronics engineers agree that to build a great product, they need to build more prototypes. In some cases, they have to build hundreds of prototypes, which can be expensive and time consuming. However, reducing the number of prototypes made to reduce costs could lead to poor product quality, which should be corrected once the product is released, and can result in a bad customer experience. Additionally, the price of having e-certifications can cost thousands of dollars for each prototype, and at that cost, the last thing you want to see is your prototype failing strict certification requirements.

For all these challenges, simulation plays a crucial role in saving time and money as well as designing a better product. However, the simulation is limited by the performance of the hardware used. Most customers are still using a very low number of cores, which prevents them from iterating or working on a complex model due to hardware limitations.

It’s about removing the hardware barrier.

Cloud-based simulation tools offer a paradigm shift in the electronics industry, enabling engineers to overcome the traditional limitations of on-premises simulation. Leveraging the power of the cloud, these tools provide engineers with virtually unlimited computational resources, enabling them to tackle complex simulations and analysis with ease.

One of the significant benefits of cloud-based simulation tools is their scalability. With cloud computing, engineers can access a vast pool of computational resources on demand, allowing them to run multiple simulations in parallel and significantly reducing the time to results. Additionally, cloud-based tools provide seamless data sharing and collaboration capabilities, allowing engineers to work together on a single platform regardless of their geographic location. To meet tight industry deadlines, access to an open ecosystem platform of computer-aided design and engineering (CAD/CAE) tools with the ability to quickly get on board and scale up or down demand is critical.

Additionally, running simulation on cloud hardware helps electrical engineers eliminate the need for costly upfront hardware investments. This not only reduces costs, but also ensures that engineers have access to the latest Ansys software releases and updates without any extra effort. It also ensures that the hardware is always up to date and is the best that can be accessed on the market. This would be difficult to replicate easily with local hardware.

To address this challenge, Ansys has partnered with AWS to release Ansys Gateway powered by AWS. This product is available in the AWS Marketplace and allows customers to easily access, subscribe and configure Ansys applications from one place. Customers will also benefit from the accelerated performance of Ansys applications powered on AWS.

Accelerate innovation, improve product quality and improve overall efficiency.

The electronics industry faces numerous challenges, but cloud-based simulation platforms such as the AWS-powered Ansys Gateway have emerged as a game changer, revolutionizing electronic design and development. By leveraging the scalability, collaboration, and cost-saving benefits of cloud computing, engineers can overcome traditional limitations, improve productivity, and accelerate innovation. Adopting these tools is critical for businesses looking to stay ahead of the curve in the dynamic world of electronics.
