Printed Circuit Board Trace Modeling with Ansys Sherlock | Ansys Webinar
- 10th December 2020
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Time: 4pm GMT
As electronics continue to become more complex, it is a challenge to develop modeling techniques that can capture this increasing complexity. Detailed modeling can be key when using simulation to evaluate electronics for reliability and performance. Printed circuit board assemblies (PCBAs) consist of multiple layers with hundreds or thousands of copper traces — not to mention the hundreds, thousands or even tens of thousands of components mounted on a typical PCB. These PCB features range in size from tens of microns to tens of millimeters, making them uniquely difficult to model. Traditional modeling techniques for electronics tend to lump the conductor and dielectric portions of a printed circuit board into a single homogenized effective set of material properties. While this can be sufficient for simpler use cases, this approximation is limiting for instances that require higher levels of fidelity. One method to consider in such situations is Trace Modeling.
In this webinar the Trace Modeling functionality in Ansys Sherlock will be reviewed, and we will show how it can be leveraged for analyses of PCBAs. This will include a general overview, several examples and a live demo highlighting the workflow. Other methodologies such as lumped properties, trace mapping and reinforcements will be briefly examined to compare different levels of modeling fidelity.
