In addition to improved gridding capabilities, 6SigmaET has also announced a new Double Precision Solver function, designed to improve the calculation of the temperature residual in order to solve models in significantly fewer iterations.


The renewed focus on speed and solve time comes following independent research from Thales Global Services, which highlighted that 6SigmaET’s meshing time is up to 41x faster than its nearest competitor, with model convergence being reached 2.7x faster in an equivalent design.


In addition to solve times, 6SigmaET has also improved its integration with the Rescale cloud platform. Since early 2016 6SigmaET has partnered with Rescale to offer high-powered solving without the need for high-end, on premise hardware. Within Release 11, users can now send models to Rescale for solving, monitor progress and retrieve results directly from the 6SigmaET user interface. They can also now use a client PC to submit and retrieve 6SigmaET jobs from a CFD server on a high-performance-computing cluster in the cloud.


Other additions to Release 11 include:

– Customisable ribbons: simplified menu allows users to add and remove regularly accessed features

– Import Wizard: an IDF and IDX import wizard ensures even simpler file imports

– File locking: Improved file locking guarantees that collaborative projects cannot be accidentally saved over

– Approximate component models: 6SigmaET will now recommend similar library objects when an exact match is unavailable

– Planar isotropic conductivity normal to surface: Allows flexible or bent PCBs to be modelled and solved accurately
