simulation

In the Simulation Department we create and analyze digital prototypes of physical models in order to identify and eliminate weak points in advance, making the final product more efficient and innovative. Simulation allows us to bring the future into the present.

A detailed list of our simulations/analyses:

  • Discovery Live, to evaluate real time design changes
  • FEM for the structural testing of mechanical parts
  • CFD for the optimization of fluid-dynamic investigations for cooling circuits
  • Thermal, to predict the thermal performance of the system
  • EMC for system interaction with electromagnetic compatibility analysis
  • Magnetics for the analysis and optimization of magnetic circuits of power components and EMI filters
  • High Frequency for the development and validation of RF antennas
