ANSYS SIwave

ANSYS SIwave is a specialized design platform for power integrity, signal integrity and EMI analysis of electronic packages and PCBs. The software is available in three product packages: SIwave-DC, SIwave-PI and SIwave. The products build upon each other, delivering maximum flexibility to equip PCB and package engineers with the analysis capabilities they require. The SIwave GUI has several Add-On solver technologies, such as the Sentinel-PSI solver and the ANSYS Q3D Extractor solver, which enables streamlined analyses for 3-D Package Power Integrity and 3-D Quasi-static parasitic extraction of packages and PCBs.

Leading companies around the world trust ANSYS SIwave to provide accurate, powerful and fast Power Integrity, Signal Integrity, and EMI analyses of complex electronic packages and PCBs. To accelerate model creation, SIwave imports ECAD files from well-known ECAD providers such as Altium, Autodesk, Cadence, Mentor Graphics and Zuken. Other formats such as GDSII, ODB++ and IPC2581 are supported as well, providing the ability to build up complete ECAD systems. This greatly improves the efficiency of analyzing modern electronic packages and PCBs to ensure proper product performance. To model real life devices, SIwave seamlessly transfers data to different physics solvers such as ANSYS Icepak for thermal design and ANSYS Mechanical for structural analysis within ANSYS Workbench.
