Communication Modules for IoT Applications
In the development of new home appliances the connection to the internet of things (IoT) plays a crucial role for BSH Hausgeräte GmbH. Read the full article
The company is driving innovation for the smart home even faster with the help of simulation using ANSYS electronics tools.
Using ANSYS HFSS and ANSYS optiSLang the influence of various geometry parameters on the antenna performance can be assessed. This allows optimization of the resonance frequencies, the bandwidths and the antenna gain and furthermore understanding the influence of manufacturing tolerances and varying
New layout concepts are investigated with ANSYS SIwave, especially the arrangement of the power and ground layers and the placement of decoupling capacitors are optimized. In this way capacitors are saved and new design rules are established.
The signal integrity analysis using ANSYS SIwave shows saving potentials for termination resistors and assists the optimization of critical high-speed signal lines.
Crucial for an efficient analysis of PCB layouts is a
streamlined EDA workflow from Mentor Expedition as
layout tool to the ANSYS electronics tools, where apart
from the geometry also part information is transferred to
the analysis tool.
