Navigating the High-Tech Landscape

The high-tech industry is fast-paced and cut-throat competitive, but lucrative when companies get it right. Across the sector, companies vary from international household names to start-ups offering niche products direct-to-consumer. Regardless of size, all companies must consistently innovate and differentiate themselves from their competitors to stay relevant and profitable.

Altair’s enterprise-wide, high-tech engineering solutions bring simulation and data-driven design to critical teams so new products can get to market faster. By breaking down information silos, teams contribute across a single platform from design concept to finished product. Moving to virtual engineering speeds up projects, avoids costly mistakes, and reduces the need for expensive physical prototypes and testing campaigns. Trusted digital twins expose design and performance sensitivities before production starts and provide real-time, actionable insights to improve and correct products already in service.

Controlling Costs

By its very nature, the high-tech industry brings together diverse sources of advanced, often expensive, materials and leading-edge components into complex processing chains. At every step, an unforeseen event can cause a delay resulting in cost increases. Errors and unexpected events that are discovered late in any project are always challenging to correct, and they can result in lost time and added cost.

With Altair’s engineering solutions, organizations can leverage simulation, gain insight, and optimize designs early in any project, which ensures that the right materials, designs, and processes are in place to reduce waste, reduce inferior parts, and improve recyclability.

Energy and time-optimized processes using Altair’s AI solutions can significantly lower costs. Likewise, Altair technology solutions make it easy to monitor equipment health in real time, predict failures, and plan preventive maintenance to avoid costly unplanned production downtime.

Smarter by the Minute with Altair’s Technology Solutions

Smart devices are light-years more powerful than the computers that put us on the moon. The Internet of Things — both personal IoT and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) — is driving exponential growth, usage, connectivity, and reliance on smart devices. We’re using it not only to stay fit and control our home environments, but to orchestrate more and more aspects of industry, businesses, and our working lives. The possibilities are endless. This increasing connectivity unlocks the full potential of data to fuel innovation, drive new opportunities, and accelerate your smart manufacturing transformation.

While customers are fickle and will swap allegiances to have the newest, fastest, sleekest devices, they are also wising up to value-for-money and impact on the planet. Energy efficiency, repairability, and end-of-life repurpose or recycle are now factors in choosing the best devices — for personal, work, and global-enterprise use.

Smaller and smaller smart devices mean microelectronics need to go nano to keep up with trends. Altair solutions help the electronics industry shift towards ever-smaller devices and improve accuracy within production lines for correct assembly.

Getting More from Hardware-assisted Design Environments with Altair Hero 2.0

There's perhaps no industry more competitive than electronics design and manufacturing, and the semiconductor industry relies on expensive EDA tools that must be utilized efficiently for maximum value and performance. As Moore's law has stalled and designs grow in size and complexity, organizations are looking for new ways to speed up verification and regression testing. Increasingly, firms are turning to hardware-assisted verification technologies to simulate designs faster and speed up regression tests.

This paper explains some of the challenges associated with hardware verification and introduces Altair Hero – an enterprise job scheduler purpose-built for multi-vendor emulation environments. It also discusses techniques used to improve emulator efficiency and show how organizations can improve throughput and realize a better ROI on their emulator investments by leveraging advanced workload management.

How to Enable High-Performance VLSI Engineering Environments

VLSI engineering organizations manage workflows with high complexity dependency trees and simulation license availability constrains. Webinar viewers will understand how a carefully curated tool chain can help VLSI engineering teams optimize design processes for maximum performance and efficiency with critical success factors such as collaboration, efficient sharing of compute and license resources, clear visibility of progress and project status and reproducibility of results and concepts in mind.


EDA in the Cloud: Containerization, Migration, and System Telemetry

Cloud computing is becoming an increasingly good choice for EDA, but a data-led transformation is needed to take advantage of the flexibility that public compute resources can offer and to maximize performance and cost. Cloud allows an organization to benefit from a clear return on investment that supports innovation and rapid prototyping, provided those advantages are fully exploited. The wins achievable by a well-planned hybrid cloud strategy should see reduced costs both on-premises and in the cloud. The ability to dynamically tune compute and storage resources based on business and application needs is only available in the cloud, and only if the right telemetry and data pipelines are in place to inform infrastructure decisions. In this paper we discuss how to put that plan in place and ensure that key business objectives are met as workflows are adapted and migrated to a new compute environment.
