Duration 1 Hour

With increasing demands being placed on modern automotive electronic systems (including standard automotive electronics modules as well as electrified and ADAS/AV systems), it is imperative that engineers meet a wide range of electrical, thermal, mechanical, and combined performance metrics while mitigating the likelihood of encountering key failure modes (such as solder joint fatigue due to thermal cycling) as a part of the design process.

During this webinar, we will discuss how Ansys solutions for electrical, thermal, and mechanical reliability help engineers improve product performance and reliability, as well as reduce the number of physical tests that are needed during the product development process.

Within the context of safety-critical automotive applications, we will cover:

  • Design challenges and critical failure modes that need to be considered when designing electronic systems, including compliance with commonly referenced standards.
  • How Ansys HFSS, SIwave, and other tools can help improve Signal and Power Integrity.
  • How Ansys Icepak can be used to improve thermal integrity and allow users to evaluate efficient cooling strategies.
  • How Ansys Mechanical and LS-DYNA address thermal-mechanical behavior (such as warpage and thermal stresses and strains), as well as the effects of shock, vibration and drop effects and manufacturing considerations.
  • How looking at electronics reliability from a holistic, multiphysics standpoint can provide you with a more complete understanding of the expected performance of an electronics system.
  • How Ansys Sherlock can be used to predict the life/reliability of PCBs subjected to thermal cycling, shock, vibration, and other effects, as well as rapidly build high-fidelity models that can be used in combination with Ansys Mechanical, LS-DYNA, and Icepak.
