Designed to enable designers to reduce chip size, lower power consumption, decrease production cost, and minimize time-to-market, RaptorH EM solver combines the company’s flagship High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) with the speed and high-capacity architecture of its RaptorX pre-LVS electromagnetic modeling software. RaptorH, says the company, will empower engineers to accelerate and improve 5G, three-dimensional integrated circuit (3D-IC), and RF IC design workflows for innovations like smart devices, antenna arrays, and data storage systems.
“Companies designing the next-generation of electronics face mounting time-to-market pressure as they try to solve incredibly complex design challenges within error-prone and expensive workflows,” says John Lee, vice president and general manager, Ansys. “By combining the world-class engines of Ansys HFSS and Ansys RaptorX into a single analysis solution, Ansys will provide an immediate solution for efficiently addressing electromagnetic effects across multiple high-speed and high-performance applications.”
From high-performance systems-on-chips (SoCs) for 5G mobile devices and network infrastructure to the RF transceivers that enable autonomous vehicles and the industrial Internet of Things, says the company, circuit design is heavily impacted by electromagnetics. The highly-integrated analysis of 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.
