Sharp Laboratories Selects EFD.V5 for CATIA V5

(18 October 2007) – Sharp Laboratories Europe has selected Flomerics’ EFD.V5 engineering fluid dynamics software, embedded in CATIA V5, for the design and virtual prototype testing of Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) modules for various applications in Europe. “We are very pleased that Sharp Laboratories has chosen EFD.V5. For analysis to become an integral step in the design process, it needs to fit within the product development process with minimal disruption to the workflow. Since EFD.V5 is embedded in CATIA V5, Sharp Laboratories can use a single interface for both design and analysis and take advantage of virtual prototyping at the design stage to further improve their market leading products,” said Gary Carter, Flomerics’ CEO. “We selected EFD.V5 because it was the most accessible Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software for engineers working with CATIA V5. Analysis results are easily generated and also improve communication between different groups within the company,” said Scott Boham, mechanical design engineer. “EFD.V5 will be used by mechanical design engineers with varying levels of CFD experience – from novice to expert.”
Sharp Laboratories of Europe is a research center for consumer electronics and has played a vital role in Sharp's global R&D in liquid crystals since 1990. Liquid crystals occupy a state of matter in between liquid and solid, in which the materials are fluid but possess some intermolecular ordering. Liquid crystal devices are made from anisotropic organic molecules, which can change orientation on application of an applied voltage. Using this simple concept transmissive or reflective electro-optic shutters and displays can be made. LCDs have excellent image quality and exhibit features not possible in other display technologies, such as light weight, thinness and low power consumption. They have become the display of choice in many products such as TVs, computer monitors and portable media devices.
