"Ansys delivered exceptionally strong results for the second quarter and significantly beat our financial guidance across our key metrics. Our broad-based growth validates our strategy of Pervasive Simulation, and our product leadership and ongoing go-to-market momentum gives us increased confidence in our business and ability to execute against our goals. In July, we extended our technology leadership with Ansys 2021 R2, which introduced breakthrough technologies and innovative capabilities across our product portfolio. These enhancements are bolstering the value of Ansys simulation for our customers by providing them greater engineering insight with enhanced speed and scalability,” said Ajei Gopal, Ansys president and CEO.

Nicole Anasenes, Ansys CFO, stated, “Our outstanding performance was highlighted by 25% ACV growth in the second quarter, driving our first half 2021 ACV growth to 16%. Given the strength and momentum in our core business year-to-date, coupled with our sales pipeline, I am confident in our ability to achieve our increased full-year 2021 guidance.”

‘The Trouble with Tribbles’

06/17/2021 | Dana Korf, Korf Consultancy
The original Star Trek series came into my life in 1966 as I was entering sixth grade. I was fascinated by the technology being used, such as communicators and phasers, and the crazy assortment of humans and aliens in each episode. My favorite episode is “The Trouble with Tribbles,” an episode combining cute Tribbles, science, and good/bad guys—sprinkled with sarcastic humor.

IPC-2581 Revision C: Complete Build Intent for Rigid-Flex

04/30/2021 | Ed Acheson, Cadence Design Systems
With the current design transfer formats, rigid-flex designers face a hand-off conundrum. You know the situation: My rigid-flex design is done so now it is time to get this built and into the product. Reviewing the documentation reveals that there are tables to define the different stackup definitions used in the design. The cross-references for the different zones to areas of the design are all there, I think. The last time a zone definition was missed, we caused a costly mistake.

Why We Simulate

04/29/2021 | Bill Hargin, Z-zero
When Bill Hargin was cutting his teeth in high-speed PCB design some 25 years ago, speeds were slow, layer counts were low, dielectric constants and loss tangents were high, design margins were wide, copper roughness didn’t matter, and glass-weave styles didn’t matter. Dielectrics were called “FR-4” and their properties didn’t matter much. A fast PCI bus operated at just 66 MHz. Times have certainly changed.
