Simulation Assists Hardware Development Productivity and Lowers Risk

On Thursday, April 13th, 2017 the IEEE Consultants’ Network of Northern NJ ( on multi-physic simulation assisting development and reducing project risk. 

About the Topic

This presentation examines some of the challenges in electronic design and how simulation can enable engineers to predict complex design scenarios. These scenarios may be too difficult to physically test and/or enable engineers to understand exactly why and how a product performs. Various electromagnetic and coupled physics (ie: mechanical, thermal) applications will be used to demonstrate these concerns using ANSYS products.

About the Speaker(s)

Dr. Charlotte Blair is a Lead Application Engineer for ANSYS, Inc supporting the high frequency product applications. She specializes in HFSS which is an FEM electromagnetic simulation software code for RF and Microwave devices. Prior to working at ANSYS she worked at Radio Frequency Systems as a Filter Design Engineer where she designed, built and tested prototypes of various cellular band pass filters. Currently she is the IEEE Connecticut Section Chair for the MTTS/APS/UFFC and WIE societies and IEEE Region 1 Public Visibility Chair. She is also the Technical Program co-chair for the 2016 IEEE R1/R2 WIE Forum. Charlotte received her BSEE from Rutgers University and her MSEE and PhD EE at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT).
