ANSYS has long been considered a leader in the multiphysics simulation category with a strong lineup of thermal, structural, and fluid dynamics platforms and solvers. This latest Apache acquisition builds on its plan put in place a few years back to build out an electromagnetic simulation offering (i.e., some would say an EDA story). As I read it, by targeting Apache, ANSYS gets two feathers in its cap: A position in low-power analysis and optimization tools, which is a really important addition to its portfolio given the surge in demand for low-power ICs in all of today's devices, and it starts to have a systems-level story for chip design, which as we've noted in multiple posts and stories, is increasingly where it's going.

This is another milestone in the series of developments you've been reporting, Beth, where companies in this sector are moving from point product providers to end-to-end solutions vendors. How does this aquisition position ANSYS from a competitive standpoint?

Engineer comic Don McMillan explains the fun engineers have with team-building exercises. Can you relate?
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
