Quantify the various sources and their paths and figure out which ones are important and which ones cancel each other out. Perform transfer path analysis (TPA) to identify and assess structure-borne and airborne energy transfer routes, from the excitation source to a given receiver location. TPA quantifies the various sources and their paths and figures out which ones contribute the most to the noise issues and which ones cancel each other out. From the quantified and modeled sources and paths, it becomes a relatively straightforward design task to optimize vibro-acoustic and the noise, vibration, and harshness (NVH) performance of the system.

The family of thermal characterization hardware solutions provides component and systems suppliers with the ability to accurately and efficiently test, measure and thermally characterize semiconductor integrated circuit packages, single and arrayed LEDs, stacked and multi-die packages, power electronics modules, thermal interface material (TIM) properties and complete electronic systems.
Our hardware solutions directly measure the actual heating or cooling curves of packaged semiconductor devices, continuously and in real time, rather than artificially composing it from the results of several individual tests. Measuring the true thermal transient response in this way is far more efficient and accurate, leading to more accurate thermal metrics than steady-state methods. Measurements only need to be performed once per sample, rather than repeated with an average taken as with steady-state methods.

Perform robust and reliable quality testing during manufacturing. Simcenter Anovis combines all necessary sensors, accurate sound and vibration signal recording hardware, smart signal analysis, and flexible test bench control software to precisely perform pass or fail checks and to deliver a formal proof that the part meets its specifications or that the machine operates safely.
Benefit from a tradition of cutting-edge engineering expertise and maximize your testing efficiency when performing impact testing on small structures, running large-scale campaigns with hundreds of measurement channels, or validating 3D finite element models with experimental data. Understand how a component or product assembly reacts under load with digital image correlation (DIC) technology. Measure full-field 3D displacement, strain and acceleration everywhere at once, under any load, with only a pair of cameras for faster and more responsive development cycles.
