Driving Innovation in a 5G World

Every new advance in technology means a boon for consumers—and a challenge for manufacturers. One of the latest challenges is 5G technology, which looks to provide fast communication, reliable low-latency data links, and support for vast quantities of connected devices. 5G promises new ways of doing business across a variety of industries, from smart manufacturing to safe autonomous driving and remote surgery.

Of course, our devices need to be designed to make use of it—and quickly—and that’s where manufacturers face a bumpy road. They have to deliver high-performance designs in a short time frame with no compromise to compliance, reliability, and safety. Fortunately, just as consumer technology advances by leaps and bounds, so does the technology they need to be competitive.

Digital Simulation is Critical for Innovation

Like many manufacturers designing and producing physical consumer goods, device manufacturers can improve the efficiency, speed, and reliability of their designs by making use of simulation technology. By employing virtual simulation throughout the design process, from early concept exploration to virtual compliance testing, they can save time and money by only making and testing physical prototypes when the digital simulations are error-free.

Fully integrated platforms, such as Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE, which combines simulation, modeling, manufacturing, collaboration, and intelligence apps in a single package, make the virtual simulation effort seamless.

In addition to the basic capacity in 3DEXPERIENCE for managing complex data and design variations, it’s SIMULIA solution includes CST software for electromagnetics which provides a number of advanced benefits:

  • The ability to simulate full 5G systems in their environment, including the human body.
  • Electromagnetic simulation speeds of up to ten times that of other simulation approaches.
  • High performance computing (HPC) capabilities to explore alternate designs in parallel and meet short product timelines.
  • A library of designable antenna models for rapid synthesis, modeling, and simulation.
  • A complete multiphysics portfolio including structural, thermal, and fluids for co-simulation.
  • High-fidelity design exploration via Design of Experiments capabilities.
  • The ability to create key performance indicators (KPIs) and regulatory results with automated post-processing.

For enterprises looking to develop new products that utilize 5G technology on time and in budget, an integrated platform such as 3DEXPERIENCE can be the answer. For more information on how to maximize your installation and configuration, contact Adaptive.

GoSCAN Spark

New GoSCAN SPARK Demonstration Videos

Curious about the new CREAFORM GoSCAN SPARK? Watch Adaptive’s own Frank Thomas as he demonstrates the capabilities of this portable, handheld 3D scanner.

The Go!SCAN SPARK is ideal for applications in automotive seating, aerospace interiors, and retail apparel like tennis shoes and sportswear.  

Go!SCAN SPARK features four inline cameras for faster 3D scanning, and acquires both 3D color and texture in material. It features an ergonomic design that allows for different types of hand positions.  It also outputs two types of files (.STL and .MOV) that are compatible with most 3D printers.

In this first video, Frank shows how quickly you can scan a sneaker and merge two images together.

In this video, Frank takes a classic laundry detergent bottle to illustrate how the scanner handles products with curves, labels, shiny surfaces.

Improve Productivity and Double Product Development Speed with 3DEXPERIENCE

New data from Dassault Systèmes demonstrates how companies can improve productivity by 30% and accelerate product development by 100%, simply by moving to 3DEXPERIENCE, Dassault’s comprehensive product lifecycle management (PLM) platform.

The Problem

Many organizations are still working with a static, on-premise set of siloed applications. CAD, CAE, MFG, and PLM software each evolved individually, and as such, each has its own data set and its own user interface, 3D modeler, data model, file format, and security configuration. Using data from one application in another means transferring and translating it—which often necessitates a PDM system to manage file versions and traceability, increasing the number of non–value added activities employees must perform just to access data.

In addition, the quantity of data in the organization—no small matter with large file packages—and the potential for mistakes increase exponentially as employees copy files onto local machines. Not only does this result in multiple static versions of data, but it also means a huge likelihood of wasted work, rework, or errors when individuals or teams use the wrong versions of files.

Siloed applications didn’t create siloed disciplines, but their separation doesn’t encourage cooperation. Mechanical, electrical, and systems teams build their own models in their own separate domains, and the first time any team sees the systems fully integrated and the whole product working often isn’t until a physical prototype is tested. It’s no surprise physical prototypes sometimes don’t work even after more than 100 build-test-fix iterations, which means projects are delayed and quality suffers.

The Solution

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes delivers a unified system with more than 500 applications built natively on a digital platform with just one UI, 3D modeler, data models, and security. Each application accesses data from the shared platform without the need to share, transfer, or translate files between formats. Available on-premise or on-cloud, 3DEXPERIENCE is the single, authoritative source of data—real-time information available to all participants in the system—which eliminates local copies of files, as well as all of the non–value added activities, and increases productivity by as much as 30%.

3DEXPERIENCE also promotes collaboration, since multi-disciplinary teams can work together on a single virtual definition, from a single platform. With the software’s robust test and simulation capabilities, teams can virtually build, test, and fix all issues before ever creating a first physical prototype. This results in a high probability of the first physical prototype actually working as intended, as well as a greatly reduced number of physical build-test-fix iterations. Overall, a coordinated, collaborative platform with shared, synchronized data and leading-edge virtual simulation and testing tools means organizations can dramatically improve their product development speed.

Electromagnetic Simulation

Webinar: Electromagnetic Simulation for Design & Analysis of Antennas & MW/RF Components

Join Adaptive’s own Wayne Tanner, Chief Operations Officer and Narayana Balu, Simulation Solution Consultant, Dassault Systèmes for our latest webinar.

In the 5G era, antennas and arrays form the basis of connected devices and vehicles. Antenna design, simulation and placement on platforms form one of the largest and strongest application areas of CST Studio Suite. Users design and optimize components ranging from miniaturized antennas printed on densely populated PCBs to electrically large arrays and reflector antennas. Antenna Magus – a unique antenna design tool compliments the design workflow by enabling users to quickly choose antenna models based on a range of specifications.

RF components such as filters, multiplexers, and transducers are also essential with the proliferation and sub-division of frequency bands. It is important to mitigate interference between increasingly crowded systems of transceivers and hence filters with high dynamic range and sensitivity are crucial, but challenging to design and optimize. In this webinar, we will look at how CST Studio Suite helps design and simulate antennas and RF components across a diverse set of industries.

Key Takeaways

  • Learn the fundamentals of antenna design and simulation in a 5G era
  • Design and optimization of antennas and components ranging from miniaturized antennas on PCBs to large arrays and reflector antennas
  • How to mitigate interference between crowded systems of transceivers and filters with high dynamic range
  • How using a comprehensive design and simulation platform provides benefits to cross functional teams to shorten design cycles and bring products to market faster
