The Virtual Development Platform transforms Requirements into Designs.
Requirements no longer reside in a set of static, text based, unrelated documents. Now they live within the platform and provide a thorough understanding of the dependencies among the various subsystems. Our Virtual Development Platform uses efficient and proven design workflows with a combination of co-simulation technologies, such as Electromagnetic, Thermal, Fluid Flow, Structural and Electronic analysis tools to create a Multi-Physics, Multi-Domain solution of the device and system.
The highly accurate simulation produces a Virtual Prototype of both hardware and software.
The Virtual Prototype is analyzed as it functions in the application, verifying the customer’s performance requirements. It is then run through a series of Virtual Validation tests, such as Extreme Ambient Temperature conditions, Operational Thermal Cycling, Vibration, EMC and Durability.
Thermal, mechanical and frictional stresses are analyzed in critical areas to determine the robustness of the design, such as in side loading of an armature to determine mechanical hysteresis and long term surface wear.
Rapid design variations can be studied and optimized early in the development cycle and with lower costs.
