The newly launched Ansys 2020 R2 brings enhanced solving and
collaboration capabilities, key for enabling globally distributed
teams to further organization-wide innovation. Ansys' (NASDAQ:
ANSS) newly updated advanced digital engineering tools help
engineering teams develop new products, sustain business
continuity, improve productivity and win the race to market.
Engineering teams are facing the daunting challenge of solving
complex designs and meeting demanding product development schedules
while working remotely. Ansys' next-generation engineering
simulation software, high-performance computing (HPC) resources and
platform solutions has helped power team-wide global collaboration
and information sharing. Ansys 2020 R2 significantly upgrades these
tools, providing highly advanced solutions which reduce costs and
"Simulations that were taking us over a week to run are now
being completed in less than two days," said Benjamin Steinhaus, Engineering Director,
Coca-Cola Freestyle, The Coca-Cola Company. "Overnight simulations
are now being done in an hour. By using the Ansys®
Cloud™ system that was provided to us, our team has
actually increased productivity during COVID."
Ansys 2020 R2 helps engineering teams accelerate innovation in
any environment and create cutting-edge designs by harnessing new
workflows and dynamic capabilities across Ansys' flagship suites.
Updates in Ansys Cloud offerings, such as virtual desktop
infrastructure support, unite Ansys' flagship simulation solutions
with highly scalable compute power delivered by cloud-based HPC.
Platform solutions enhanced with powerful workflows deliver a
streamlined user experience with enhanced functionality for data
and configuration management, dependencies visualization and
decision support, as well as user-friendly workflows for process
integration and design optimization and materials management.
Ansys' digital twin solutions enable remote monitoring of assets
and are a critical component for predictive maintenance.
Collectively, these resources will help engineers generate
larger, more complex designs easier and faster than ever, increase
productivity, spur development of high-quality products and
expedite time to market.
Although the world has slowed with COVID-19, the most innovative
and cutting-edge companies within the automotive industry are
continuing their autonomous vehicle (AV) developments as planned.
Ansys 2020 R2 drives AV development and validation with new
technologies ranging from advanced LiDAR models to a new sky model
for enhanced daylight simulation that extends camera
hardware-in-the-loop use cases to daytime. It also provides a
complete New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) scenario kit for AV
function development, enabling rapid simulation of standard NCAP
testing scenarios, potentially reducing the cost of physical
testing by 50% as advanced driver assistance systems increase in
"Ansys' optical and simulation solutions
empower Weldex Corporation to render our engineering
innovations into visual material," said William Jung, CEO,
Weldex Corporation. "We are able to import optical simulation
results of headlamps from Ansys® SPEOS™ to
Ansys® VRXPERIENCE™ Headlamp and use
scenarios created in Ansys® VRXPERIENCE Driving
Simulator powered by SCANeR™ to create movies of driving vehicles
equipped with our products' virtual prototypes. We use the
results to facilitate post-processing and data visualization for
lamp certification, replacing costly and difficult night
tests. These tools also give us a real competitive advantage to
demonstrate our high-quality, durable automotive illumination
solutions to our customers through lifelike and reliable pictures
Additionally, Ansys 2020 R2 improves deployment, scalability and
performance of AI-based perception software testing through
multi-GPU parallelization, making it easy to systematically
identify hazards and comply with new safety standards like Safety
of the Intended Functionality (SOTIF).
"NXP is in process of deploying Ansys® medini analyze
internally as the recommended tool to perform quantitative safety
analyses. Several valuable tool improvements have been identified
and implemented over the last years of collaboration, for example,
related to distinction between transient and permanent faults and
import and allocation of design data," said Dr. Rolf Schlagenhaft, senior automotive functional
safety professional and assessor, NXP Semiconductors Germany GmbH.
"The number of NXP projects which use medini are increasing. The
collaboration between NXP and medini continues with a focus on easy
configurability of generic safety analyses to specific customer use
cases by field application engineers."
In support of automotive electrification, a new thermal and
vibrational analysis coupled with Ansys' industry-leading
electromagnetic field simulation software helps predict reliability
and noise, vibration and harshness. Additionally, modeling thermal
behavior of batteries during all stages of the design cycle is now
easier than ever by using a streamlined workflow and new
capabilities that simulate the important effects of capacity fade
and cell life.
Supporting 5G, Ansys 2020 R2 advances phased array
antenna analysis to enable engineers to simulate larger, more
complex designs with scalable leveraging of HPC. Additionally,
engineers may leverage significant advances for integrated circuit
(IC), package and board workflows, enabling electronics reliability
and electrothermal modeling. Lastly, on-chip device modeling
combined with 3D electromagnetic simulation software provides gold
standard verification for sensitive ICs.
"Across every industry, COVID-19 has forced engineering teams to
work differently and find new ways to innovate. Simulation unlocks
the potential of these distributed teams, enabling them to achieve
more with less while quickly responding to the changing demands of
their customers," said Shane
Emswiler, senior vice president, Ansys. "Ansys 2020 R2
provides the building blocks that help companies accelerate
innovation and expedite the development of high-quality products
for customers around the world."
