System Simulation for Sensor Development

Influence of manufacturing tolerances and operational conditions on sensor performance

The Bourns Automotive Division has played a leading role in the design, development and manufacture of potentiometric sensors since 1949. New applications such as advanced driving assistance systems (ADAS) lead to increasing demands for sensor resolution and robustness under various operating conditions.

In order to meet requirements for development, sensor characteristics, manufacturability and costs, Bourns approach is to use system simulation based on the combination of reduced order models derived from field simulations and behavior models.

System simulation accelerates the purposeful development of complex sensor systems consisting of various interacting components. Even with competing optimization goals and design restrictions it is possible to identify ideal sensor configurations through parameter variation.

Please read the full article, learn about the system model set up in ANSYS Simplorer and how Bourns – a CADFEM customer –  is able to fully meet increasing design demands.

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
assembly locations.

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.
