New Cadence Clarity 3D Transient Solver Delivers Up to 10X Faster System-Level EMI Simulation


Reading time ( words)

Cadence Design Systems, Inc. expanded its system analysis product line with the introduction of the Cadence® Clarity 3D Transient Solver, a system-level simulation solution that solves electromagnetic interference (EMI) system design issues up to 10X faster than legacy 3D field solvers and offers unbounded capacity. Built on Cadence’s massively parallel matrix solver technology, the Clarity 3D Transient Solver handles workload levels that previously required time-consuming and expensive anechoic test chambers to test prototypes for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) compliance. The new solver is capable of simulating large designs that until now have been impractical or unable to be solved, reducing respins and accelerating time to market. This makes it ideal for many complex applications in the hyperscale computing, automotive, mobile, and aerospace and defense markets.

“As a premier engineering service provider, Ultimate Technologies focuses on quick, efficient and first-time-right designs,” said Satoshi Utsumi, CEO of Ultimate Technologies, Inc. “The Clarity 3D Transient Solver from Cadence allows us to simulate with test-measurement accuracy so we can predict what will be measured during EMI testing, thereby ensuring our customers pass EMI compliance checking on the first pass while dramatically reducing the number of prototype designs. This allows us to shave up to three months off automotive ECU design cycles, reducing design cycle time by as much as 30 percent. With Clarity 3D technology, we can quickly iterate and improve design quality while meeting customer schedule demands.”

The Clarity 3D Transient Solver is capable of quickly and accurately performing large-scale simulations when designing critical interconnects for PCBs, IC packages, and system on IC (SoIC) designs within a mechanical enclosure. It relies on proven, proprietary Cadence distributed multiprocessing technology that spreads computing resources over hundreds or even thousands of cores in cloud-based compute environments. This unbounded capacity lets designers move beyond the module level to simulate entire systems at speeds up to 10X faster than legacy field solver technology while maintaining verifiable accuracy. This results in less time spent testing prototypes against EMI emissions and immunity standards such as those set by Comité International Spécial des Perturbations Radioélectriques (CISPR). The Clarity 3D Transient Solver also offers unparalleled integration with Cadence Virtuoso® Layout, Allegro® PCB Designer and SiP Layout.

“Many customers advise it is very time consuming and expensive to find problem areas in anechoic test chambers, and often those problems are challenging to isolate, identify and fix,” said Ben Gu, vice president of multi-physics system analysis in the Custom IC & PCB Group at Cadence. “Now they can rely on the power of computational software simulation to identify and fix problems earlier in the design cycle. The Clarity 3D Transient Solver demonstrates that Cadence continues to deliver industry-leading solutions that significantly speed electronic system design.”

The Clarity 3D Transient Solver supports Cadence’s Intelligent System Design strategy, enabling system innovation. It is expected to be available in the first quarter of 2021.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

01/06/2023 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007
The youngsters are back in school, and we’re all back to work. The water is back on for most of us in Atlanta; when temps dropped down to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, our pipes started bursting left and right. After a Christmas dinner with no water, I have a new appreciation for H2O. It’s been a busy week, and we published a variety of articles, columns, and news items. In this week’s top five, we have news about the market in Southeast Asia, a look at what the CHIPS Act really entails, a deep dive into CMMC, and a peek at how printed electronics developers are using flexible circuit concepts to facilitate PEC. We also say goodbye to a Top Gun PCB designer who left us way too soon.

We’re still not officially into summer yet, but Atlanta is bringing the heat, baby! It’s hit 97 degrees a few times this week, and I now have a fan aimed right at my face. At least it’s nice and humid too. I’m glad I don’t wear make-up. And it’s been a hot week in the circuit board community. This week, Eltek reported a fire at a board shop in Israel, and Flex committed to building a 145,000-square-foor facility in Jalisco, Mexico to serve the electric and autonomous vehicle segment.

Additive Manufacturing Requires Additive Design Techniques
