Get Started

In this course, you will learn the basics of Ansys HFSS geometry design and the EM simulation workflow. This course will cover concepts like creating a geometry, assigning boundaries, analyzing the solution setup and plotting the results with field overlays. We will first look at the Ansys Electronics Desktop (AEDT) simulation software then move on to Ansys HFSS, which is used to design and simulate high-frequency EM designs.

Ansys HFSS uses various types of solvers to create a mesh to get accurate results. It has high-performance computing and analysis options to speed up the simulations. Each lesson in this course consists of a lecture that supports the workshops and required simulation files.

Maxwell is an electromagnetic tool for analyzing low-frequency phenomena and devices. It is integrated into the Electronics Desktop, together with all the other Ansys electromagnetic tools. It can also be integrated in the Workbench Platform for multiphysics analysis. Geometries can be created either directly inside Maxwell or imported from external CAD tools. Maxwell can be launched from an Ansys Workbench installation as well. This workflow is intended for when Maxwell will be using any of the variety of features in the Workbench system, such as CAD connections, design of experiments or multiphysics analysis. Quasi-static solvers in Maxwell offer an automatic meshing refinement algorithm. The transient solver allows the analysis of large movements and mechanical transients.

Thermal analysis at the components and system levels is required to foresee device performance over long durations. Using thermal analysis can help you evaluate the internal heat generated by the electronic circuits and visualize the possible ventilation by following the airflow. Thus, designers can ensure that these electronic circuits or devices operate in desired thermal conditions. Thermal analysis can also determine the effects of environmental conditions on these electronic circuits. The Icepak tool integrated with the Ansys Electronics Desktop (AEDT) can be used for this electrothermal analysis. This course focuses mainly on the basics of Icepak and electrothermal analysis by using multiphysics analysis inside AEDT.

In this course, you will learn the basics of Ansys Q3D Signal Integrity and Quasi-static EM field simulation workflow. This course will also cover some basic equations related to capacitance and inductance and then introduce few basic matrix operations. It introduces two important capacitance matrices – Maxwell and SPICE capacitance matrices.
