Ansys Inc. Recent Developments
In October 2021, Together with EMA, Ansys added EMA3D Charge to its simulation solution portfolio, addressing critical design and safety needs for applications ranging from space exploration to everyday commutes. The new solution enhances predictive accuracy for engineers analyzing charging and discharging events that can lead to catastrophic product failures early in the design cycle, driving faster time-to-market and bottom-line savings.
In February 2021, Ansys launched Moxie. The new product enables engineers to run and analyze SysML behavioral models in virtual environments and confirm these designs represent systems that will satisfy mission performance requirements—from military aircraft performing reconnaissance to automated cars navigating cities to satellites capturing photos of forest fires.
In January 2021, Ansys launched Ansys HFSS Mesh Fusion. Cutting development expenses and expediting the development of leading-edge products, HFSS Mesh Fusion drives rapid and fully coupled simulation of complex EM systems — without compromising the design or fidelity.
In February 2020, with the release of Ansys RaptorH, Ansys will empower engineers to accelerate and improve 5G, three-dimensional integrated circuit (3D-IC), and radio-frequency integrated circuit design workflows for innovations like smart devices, antenna arrays, and data storage systems. RaptorH fuses the fidelity of Ansys' flagship HFSS with the speed and high-capacity architecture of RaptorX — enabling designers to reduce chip size, lower power consumption, decrease production cost, and minimize time-to-market.
From high-performance systems-on-chip for 5G mobile devices and network infrastructure to the radio-frequency transceivers that enable autonomous vehicles and the industrial Internet of Things, circuit design is heavily impacted by electromagnetics. Ansys RaptorH will empower customers to overcome unwanted interference that often leads to lengthy design cycles, increased risk, higher costs, and sub-optimal performance.
The highly-integrated analysis solution of Ansys RaptorH enables designers to simulate electromagnetic phenomena on advanced nanometer silicon designs across multi-chip 3D-ICs, silicon interposers, and advanced packaging — resulting in shorter design cycles and improved reliability and integrity.
In January 2020, Ansys released Ansys 2020 R1, which streamlines product development lifecycles and helps boost product performance with enhancements to the interfaces, functionality, and power of our simulation solvers. Among these advances is Ansys Minerva, a knowledge management application platform that delivers an integrated suite of Ansys tools, fusing simulation and optimization to product lifecycle processes across any enterprise. Minerva spurs collaboration within global engineering teams and increases data sharing to innovate product designs and reduce development costs. From improving product development with Ansys Minerva to running complex simulations with substantially streamlined workflows with Ansys Fluent to optimizing electromagnetic design processes with Ansys HFSS, Ansys 2020 R1 helps enable companies to pioneer innovations and create cost-effective designs.
To leverage the combined benefits of cloud computing and best-in-class engineering simulation, Ansys partnered with Microsoft Azure to create a secure cloud solution. In Ansys 2020 R1, Ansys Cloud introduced new licensing options to enable greater business flexibility. Companies can cost optimize cloud software usage by mixing elastic (usage-based) and traditional (leased or paid-up) licensing while accessing on-demand compute resources.
Ansys Inc. Mergers and Acquisitions (M&A) Activities
In August 2021, Ansys acquired Zemax, LLC, a high-performance optical imaging system simulation. The acquisition will expand the scope of Ansys' solution offering, giving users comprehensive, end-to-end solutions for simulating next-generation optical and photonics products. Those innovations range in scope from photonics-enabled circuits to precision vision systems to system-level illumination and could drive breakthroughs in healthcare, autonomy, consumer electronics, and the industrial internet of things.
In March 2020, Ansys has acquired Lumerical Inc., a developer of photonic design and simulation tools. The acquisition will add best-in-class photonics products to the Ansys multiphysics portfolio, providing customers with a full set of solutions to solve their next-generation product challenges.
Emerging technologies such as 5G and industrial internet of things (IIoT) applications as well as autonomous vehicles are challenging companies to deal with massive volumes of data faster than ever. Traditional means of transmitting that data are being replaced by higher-efficiency optical networks. Lumerical's photonic simulation products enable designers to model the most challenging problems in photonics, including interacting optical, electrical, and thermal effects. Lumerical's solutions can improve the performance of data center architectures by removing networking bottlenecks, potentially slashing the total cost of ownership. Additionally, the acquisition of Lumerical is expected to enable Ansys customers to predict light behavior within complex photonic structures and systems.
