Ansys Internet of Things (IoT) Simulation Solutions

The Internet of Things (IoT) is about enabling connectivity and embedded intelligence in devices. This connectivity will greatly streamline communications among our electronic devices, improving the way we live, work and play.

For OEI and Ansys customers, innovating new products with technologically demanding products is nothing new. The complete simulation and workflow technologies used to develop the ground-breaking products all around us are ready for the next generation of ubiquitous connectivity. Whether for stress, thermal, antenna and power design applications; our simulation technologies are speeding the development of IoT devices, networking infrastructure and cloud computing platforms.

Structural & Thermal

Things can be difficult out in the real world. Dropping or hitting portable electronics is the leading cause of device failure. Even without a catastrophic event, your device could be vulnerable to vibrational loading, cyclic fatigue or thermal stress. Even if your device does not fail, it may fail your customers as skin comfort is a key requirement for wearable electronics. Ansys Mechanical is the industry leading simulation tool for all of the following:

  • Strength AnalysisStructural_Thermal
  • Vibration and Drop Testing
  • Thermal Analysis
  • Electo-Thermal-Structure Interaction

In an internet of things, your product will have to deal with the noise. With multiple antennas from different communication types interfering with each other your antenna needs to perform up to your product’s promise. Ansys HFSS gives you everything you need to make sure your antenna can handle the following issues:

  • Interference/cross talkIoT-Antenna
  • Effect of wrapping on antenna performance
  • Parametric optimization  & tuning for conflicting design objectives

In a small, communications enabled device, power efficiency & safety is paramount. Whether your are optimizing power for both throughput and regulatory compliance, implementing wireless charging or making your design as efficient as possible, Ansys has the tools you will need:

Wireless Charging

Car3In recent years, Wireless Chargers have drawn a lot of attention.  This technology can be applied to electronic devices such as mobile devices, laptops, and electric vehicles charging systems. The common methods for wireless chargers are

  • Near-Field (Electromagnetic Induction and Magnetic Resonance)
  • Far-Field (Resonance and Microwave).

For Wireless Power Transfer (WPT), Ansys solution offers Maxwell & Simplorer  for Near-Field method and HFSS & Designer for Far-Field method.Charger2
