Will we see tech students spraying Champagne during the awards ceremony at the Indy Autonomous Challenge next October? What is sure is that the race initiative confirms a strong academic commitment to autonomous vehicle research. Meanwhile, Hyundai Motor and Apple are reportedly planning to sign a partnership deal on autonomous electric cars by March and start production around 2024 in the United States. More about the Indy race below, after some EDA news. Other updates this week concern CPUs, machine learning, and robotics.
EDA updates: Ansys, Siemens
Ansys has recently launched its new HFSS Mesh Fusion. Available in Ansys HFSS 2021 R1, the new solution enables fully-coupled simulation of entire, complex electromagnetic systems. It combines integrated circuits, packaging, connectors, printed circuit boards, antennas and platform in a single Ansys HFSS analysis to predict electromagnetic interactions.
The EDA business of Siemens – formerly Mentor – has announced that its tools for the verification of analog/mixed-signal circuits are now qualified for early design starts on Samsung Foundry’s new 3nm Gate All Around process technology. Early-stage AMS designs can now be verified using the Analog FastSpice (AFS) platform on Samsung’s most advanced process technology.
