3D graphics board

Unique cooling solution

Engineered as a mid-range, professional 3D graphics solution, the NVIDIA(R) Quadro(R) FX 700 is equipped with the full NVIDIA Quadro FX feature set. It features silent cooling that is reportedly ideal for users who require low acoustic levels, such as medical imaging, production studios, or where users require reduced decibel levels in large system concentrations.

Tool suite

Validate design intent early

The Capital Analysis tool suite is the latest addition to the company's CHS data-centric end-to-end toolset for complex wiring systems design, analysis, and manufacture. It is designed to meet the analysis requirements for electrical wiring systems design in the rail, automotive, and aerospace industries. It reportedly enables users to validate the design intent early in the design process with electrical simulation, sneak circuit, and failure mode effects analysis tools.

Layout speed enhancements

Intended to expand Ansoft Solver on Demand(TM) technology to include Nexxim(TM) and Q3D Extractor(TM) , Ansoft Designer(TM) v2.0 features environment scripting and netlist callback. It also contains system simulation expanded to address broadband spectral analysis, IBIS model support, SPICE netlist import wizard, and electric rule checking.

CAD/CAM Solution

Faster conceptual design

QuickShapes is designed as a comprehensive set of primitive 3D shape commands that are a simple, addition to the company's Version 9 for design modeling. Users can reportedly produce fast, accurate parametric shapes without having to initially define a base sketch. They can also quickly develop the essential layout of a product, or go completely from beginning to end, in less time, according to the company. VX Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/3849-609


Easily tune in workstation

The company's Performance Tuning Framework is designed to allow workstation customers to easily tune their Intel(R) Pentium(R) or Xeon(TM) -based workstations running 3D Studio Max for enhanced performance, stability, and productivity with 3D graphics driver installation and system optimization. The product automatically updates itself via the Web when new 3D Studio Max drivers and optimization applications become available. Hewlett Packardhttp://rbi.ims.ca/3849-610

Single-board computers

Selected as processing engines

The company's PowerEngine series has been selected to serve as the processing engines for a new, integrated Compact Redundant Naval Console, the CTI2000. The engines will serve in each of the two modules incorporated into the CTI2000: an MMI module running under BlueCat Linux, and a real-time module running under LynxOS. Both are installed in the same VME rack to offer a reportedly compact, high-performance, high-availability management system for naval applications. Thales Computershttp://rbi.ims.ca/3849-611

Design Environment

Reduces costs

Using pDfx, designers are able to optimize products for manufacturability before tape-out, allowing savings in product costs and faster ramp up to production-level yields. The product provides the company's knowledge of IC manufacturability directly to designers of integrated circuits. It is designed for integration with intellectual property from the target process and with products from Cadence Design Systems Inc. PDF Solutions Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/3849-613

Analysis software

Presentation options

Featuring additional result evaluation and presentation options, a new iterative solver, and new analysis capabilities for MES, the company's V14.3 is engineered to enable users to perform more analyses in less time. It is also designed to give users more options for evaluating and presenting their results. Other options include the ability to define result probes at desired locations, displaying impact planes for MES, and an embedded animation player. Algor Inc.http://rbi.ims.ca/3849-612
