Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

How does heat affect the performance of electronic devices?

Heat can significantly impact electronic devices by degrading components over time, forcing performance to be reduced to avoid damage and potential failure. Heat causes mechanical stresses in electronic assemblies, accelerating wear out. To manage these effects, simulation should be considered early in the design to choose the best product architecture, understand the thermal performance and optimize the cooling solution for the system for cost, power consumption, form factor and other considerations.

What are the advantages of using simulation and testing software in electronics design?

Using simulation software and testing during electronics development offers numerous advantages. Exploring the performance of the design from the outset ensures a design approach that will work, de-risking the development process. Time is saved in late design through fewer engineering change orders, saving costs and freeing up valuable engineering resources for innovation on the next project, not firefighting the current one. Testing during the development underpins simulation fidelity. These advantages make simulation an essential tool for modern electronics engineers in developing innovative and reliable electronic products and systems.

How can Simcenter solutions for simulation and testing add value to my design process?

The uniqueness of Simcenter lies in its integrated approach to simulation and testing and making these technologies available to design engineers as well as simulation specialists. Embedding Simcenter simulation within Siemens NX gives your development team far greater access to simulation, enhancing collaboration across teams by making product performance a unifying goal. Advanced multi-disciplinary simulation capabilities integrated with test data, support the development of digital twins to understand performance before manufacturing to optimize the design for performance, reliability and sustainability.

How can Siemens help me automate and optimize my engineering process for more operational efficiency?

Siemens offers integrated engineering workflows that unify various stages of the engineering process, from development to commissioning and maintenance. The workflow across multiple tools can be automated to remove manual activities that do not add value. This integrated approach ensures seamless data exchange as an unbroken digital thread between different engineering disciplines, including simulation models and data, reducing human errors and rework.
