Zuken Expands ANSYS Simulation Support with New CR-8000 ReleaseJune 16, 2016 | Zuken
Estimated reading time: 2 minutes
Zuken’s CR-8000 3D product-centric PCB design platform includes support for ANSYS’ electronics database (EDB) standard as part of the 2016 release, available now. The CR-8000 2016 release expands ANSYS support beyond the existing ANSYS neutral file (ANF) format to include EDB, enhancing the simulation interface with Design Force, Zuken’s PCB design tool, ANSYS HFSS software and ANSYS SIwave software.
Using EDB in Design Force 2016, users can easily pass extensive information to support simulation, such as ports, boundary definitions and simulation control parameters to the ANSYS platform. CR-8000’s support for the EDB will deliver a unique virtual prototyping flow to simulate electromagnetic, thermal, and mechanical behavior of a product, allowing design engineers to meet their system power and performance targets, while reducing cost.
Larry Williams, PhD., director of product management at ANSYS, said, “Zuken has been a long time partner with exceptional technology. ANSYS and Zuken have many common customers and we appreciate the investment Zuken is making to support EDB in CR-8000. Using EDB as an exchange format will significantly improve and streamline the concurrent design and analysis experience for engineers designing high-performance PCBs.”
Zuken’s 2016.1 release of CR-8000 will support the back-annotation of results, providing an even better user experience. Mutual customers will have the ability to effortlessly move design data and simulation results between products supporting EDB, reducing simulation time and iterations between design and analysis throughout the design process.
Humair Mandavia, chief strategy officer of Zuken, added, “ANSYS simulation and analysis tools are industry-leading and complementary to our hardware design platform, CR-8000. Support for EDB will enhance our mutual user experience, improving productivity and ease of use from the exploratory and path finding phase, down to post-layout.”
CR-8000 2016 is available for immediate delivery.
