ANSYS Wins DesignCon Vision Award For Third Year Running

PathFinder™-Dynamic From ANSYS Subsidiary Apache Design Wins Integrated Circuit Design Tool Category

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 5, 2014 — (PRNewswire) —

PITTSBURGH, Feb. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third year in a row, ANSYS (NASDAQ: ANSS) has earned an award celebrating unique tools that improve and simplify the electronic design process.

ANSYS won the DesignCon 2014 DesignVision Award for the Integrated Circuit (IC) Design Tools category for ANSYS PathFinder-D technology. A comprehensive layout-based electro-static discharge (ESD) integrity solution, PathFinder is critical to custom IC designers because it helps identify weak areas of the design in layout or circuit that could potentially cause ESD failures.

Historically, electronic components have often experienced ESD failures, or electrical shorts. However, these failures are becoming more frequent due to the rise in use of smart devices, shrinking geometries, higher levels of digital and analog integration and advanced electronic package designs. So the advanced technology to address these phenomena is becoming increasingly valuable.

"It's with great pride that ANSYS accepts recognition from DesignCon for the third consecutive year," said Norman Chang, vice president and senior product strategist at ANSYS subsidiary Apache. "As electronics products become smaller and smarter, ensuring design reliability has become increasingly challenging. This DesignVision award further underscores our commitment to providing best-in-class technology to our customers and the electronics industry."

DesignVision award winners were selected based on three criteria: how well the product met the market's vision and offered unique insight into customer needs; the originality of the solution and if it offered a new approach to meeting market needs; and the quality of the implementation and how well it fits the market requirements.
