Gaining insights into a product’s performances has never been easier. With the HyperWorks Design Explorer, users can easily set up and execute the design of experiments (DOE) and optimization studies, learning which attributes contribute the most to the different performances, review, plot, and compare results from multiple runs, and ultimately identify optimal designs. The quick and easy setup process is solver independent, yet fully integrated with Altair’s structural analysis solutions.

On the other hand, many design specifications are quantifiable and ... Read More

Proactive Electrical Root Cause Analysis is Easier Than You Think

Saigopal R M | Application Engineer, Altair

It is a widely accepted fact that PCB design flaws (like clearance, impedance mismatch, return current path discontinuity) manifest into serious electrical issues (reflection, EMI, crosstalk, etc). Owing to the increasing complexity of designs, Engineers find it difficult to probe the root cause of potential electrical problems with traditional approaches like visual inspection, rule-of-thumb, datasheet guidelines, and simulation. With the numerous electrical rules in Altair’s PollEx DFE (Design For Electrical Validity) and DFE+ (Advanced Design for Electrical Validity), we can ... Read More
