Simulation apps for virtual prototyping

  • 16-Aug-2016 09:58 EDT


Engineers at BE CAE & Test (Catania, Italy), a COMSOL- (Stockholm, Sweden) certified consultant, have taken the simulation process beyond the typical approach of “run a test/deliver a report.” Using the COMSOL Multiphysics software and the Application Builder, they have created a series of easy-to-use custom applications that perform virtual prototyping of their customers’ surface-mount device designs. According to BE CAE & Test, the apps (pictured) hide the complexity of the underlying detailed model, yet still provide access to the powerful functionality of the simulation. BE CAE & Test is creating custom applications to give device designers interactive tools to access, analyze and share the vast amount of information available from the mathematical models they created without needing app users to be simulation specialists themselves.
