ANSYS Takes Home DesignCon Award For Second Year In A Row

ANSYS® HFSS™ for ECAD with Cadence wins modeling and simulation tools category

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 7, 2013 — (PRNewswire) — �For the second year in a row, ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) has earned a prestigious award celebrating for offering an innovative, high-quality tool that simplifies the electronic product design process. DesignCon 2013's DesignVision Award for the Modeling and Simulation Tools category was presented to ANSYS in recognition of its HFSS for ECAD integration which was recently released in ANSYS version 14.5.

As electronics products become smaller and smarter, the need to include electromagnetic analysis within traditional electronic design has increased dramatically.  ANSYS HFSS is critical to designers of printed circuit boards (PCB), electronic packages and custom integrated circuits because it provides the most accurate electromagnetic extraction of critical signal pathways. 

Engineers that design printed circuit boards, electronic packages and custom integrated circuits use electronic computer aided design (ECAD) programs; one of the most widely used ECAD programs are the Cadence Design Systems suite of tools. The ANSYS HFSS for ECAD integration leverages the Cadence layout-based user interface and provides engineers with a comfortable environment to begin using simulation for product validation. This customized environment automates the process of preparing layout data for analysis using HFSS whereby all materials, boundary conditions and ports are set up automatically and reliably, streamlining model set-up for a broad class of electrical engineers. 

"It's with great pride that ANSYS accepts recognition from DesignCon for the second consecutive year," said Larry Williams, director of product management at ANSYS. "This integration is strategic because engineers can acquaint themselves with simulation in the familiar Cadence environment and as high-speed electronic designs become more complex and require 3D and multiphysics capabilities, customers have the necessary integration and migration paths to the full ANSYS multiphysics analysis portfolio."  

DesignVision award winners were selected based on three criteria: how well the product met the market's vision and offered unique insight into customer needs; the originality of the solution and if it offered a new approach to meeting market needs; and the quality of the implementation and how well it fits the market requirements.
