Zuken Expands ANSYS Simulation Support with Latest CR-8000 Release
Zuken’s CR-8000 3D product-centric PCB design platform includes support for ANSYS’ electronics database (EDB) standard as part of the 2016 release, available now. The CR-8000 2016 release expands ANSYS support beyond the existing ANSYS neutral file (ANF) format to include EDB, enhancing the simulation interface with Design Force, Zuken’s PCB design tool, ANSYS® HFSS™ software and ANSYS® SIwave™ software.
Using EDB in Design Force 2016, users can easily pass extensive information to support simulation, such as ports, boundary definitions and simulation control parameters to the ANSYS platform. CR-8000’s support for the EDB will deliver a unique virtual prototyping flow to simulate electromagnetic, thermal, and mechanical behavior of a product, allowing design engineers to meet their system power and performance targets, while reducing cost.
