ANSYS Acquires Assets of Delcross Technologies


Reading time ( words)

ANSYS, the global leader of engineering simulation software, announced today that it has acquired substantially all the assets of Delcross Technologies, a premier developer of computational electromagnetic simulation and radio frequency system analysis software. The acquisition will enable ANSYS users to understand how antennas interact within their operating environments and how this behavior affects the system's overall ability to transmit and receive data without interference. Terms of the deal, which closed earlier this week, were not disclosed.

Driven by development for the Internet of Things, antennas are becoming increasingly pervasive across industries and products. Autonomous vehicles, smart metering, drones, bio-sensors and wearable electronics are just a few examples of products that now use one or more antennas and wireless systems to provide such services as voice, data communications, sensing and navigation. But these antennas and other electronic components can disrupt the operation of devices, a phenomenon known as electromagnetic interference, or EMI. Delcross' solutions identify and help mitigate EMI issues. 

"ANSYS will bring Delcross' industry-leading technology to a broader market and further strengthen our leadership in antenna design, wireless system performance and EMI prediction," said Jim Cashman, ANSYS president and CEO. "The combined ANSYS high-frequency solution will deliver an unequalled portfolio for wireless system design. When we pair this expanded electronics offering with our best-in-class structures and fluids solutions, our users can create more complete virtual prototypes of whole systems."

"The combination of ANSYS and Delcross provides a powerful solution for next-generation wireless system design," said Matt Miller, Delcross president. "The acquisition opens new system opportunities and better positions ANSYS to meet the simulation needs of these important applications. That's why the Delcross team and I are extremely pleased to join ANSYS."

The I-Connect007 editorial team recently spoke with Barry Olney of iCD about simulation. Barry, a columnist for Design007 Magazine, explains why simulation tools can have such a steep learning curve, and why many design engineers are still not using simulation on complex high-speed designs.

Eliminating ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out’ With Checks and Balances

03/26/2021 | Nick Barbin, Optimum Design Associates
The proverbial saying “garbage in, garbage out” holds true in the electronic product development world. PCB designers stand squarely in the middle of a busy information intersection flowing with inputs and outputs. Missing or bad information at the beginning of a design project will undoubtedly lead to board re-spins, increased costs, and most importantly, a delayed product release. The same can be said about the PCB designer who doesn’t provide a fully checked and comprehensive data package to the downstream manufacturers, i.e., “throwing it over the fence.”

Turning ‘Garbage In, Garbage Out' into ‘Good In, Good Out’

03/23/2021 | Tamara Jovanovic, Happiest Baby
In the PCB design cycle, it is so easy to unintentionally introduce “garbage” into your system. Unless you have time to extensively check everything you bring in from an external source, it is very likely that something will not match up with your design data. In the end, this means you’ll have to put more work into your design and basically reverse-engineer a part that was supposed to save you time and effort.
