process automation meets engineering. Dassault
Systemes' Isight simulation process automation and design
has been upgraded with new methods and capabilities to exploit
processing along with a new licensing model designed to reduce cost.
SIMULIA brand, gives designers, engineers and researchers an open system
integrate design and simulation models created with diverse CAD, CAE and
design tool applications. The software is designed to help automate the
execution of hundreds or thousands of simulations, saving time and
improve designs by optimizing against performance or cost variables
methods such as Design of Experiments or Design for Six Sigma.
The new Isight 4.5
upgrade provides new scalable parallel algorithms for leveraging
computing resources, enhanced approximation and reliability methods to
product performance across a range of real-world operating variables,
improvements to multi-objective optimization and data mining which
deeper insight into performance attribute tradeoffs. Dassault also
SIMULIA Execution Engine (formerly Fiper) 4.5 for executing Isight
process flows across computing resources.
Customers will now
be able to leverage the new parallel algorithm and optimization features
Isight combined with the distributed computing capabilities of
Engine to evaluate more design alternatives in less time, according to
Crowley, director of product management, SIMULIA, Dassault Systemes.
result in developing better products at a lower cost, he said.
In a related move, users of SIMULIA's Abaqus
Unified FEA will benefit from a new licensing policy that dramatically
the cost for using SIMULIA's Abaqus Unified FEA in automated design
with Isight. Using the combination of these products allows customers to
their Abaqus token usage as much as 60 percent.
The increased adoption of wireless technology for mission-critical applications has revved up the global market for dynamic electronic general purpose (GP) test equipment. As the link between cloud networks and devices -- smartphones, tablets, and notebooks -- results in more complex devices under test, the demand for radio frequency test equipment is starting to intensify.
Much of the research on lithium-ion batteries is focused on how to make the batteries charge more quickly and last longer than they currently do, work that would significantly improve the experience of mobile device users, as well EV and hybrid car drivers. Researchers in Singapore have come up with what seems like the best solution so far -- a battery that can recharge itself in mere minutes and has a potential lifespan of 20 years.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
