At the beginning of 2021, Cadence made two big announcements: As part of the Intelligent System Design (ISD) Strategy, Cadence has acquired Numeca and Pointwise. This move strengthens Cadence’s competence in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD). Ben Gu, Vice President of R&D at Cadence and one of the masterminds behind the ISD strategy, dives deeper into the impact of these acquisitions for Cadence.
However, even for a company like Cadence, which has managed many acquisitions in the more than 30 years of its existence, tapping into the CFD market is a courageous step since a typical microelectronics engineer and a typical CFD engineer have hardly interacted so far, but we believe that the situation is about to change. System design and analysis requires more and more multi-physics application, where different solvers, thermal, electro-magnetic, CFD, and others will interact with each other in order to give the system designer a fuller picture of the complete system before it is created.
With only a few hands-on tutorials, students at West Virginia University were able to generate many different mesh topologies to study the aerodynamics of a fairing
Just like Cadence, we are continuing to expand our network and the technical breadth of our program and community. Avid readers of this blog might remember a very similar article that I wrote one year ago on the integration of AWR and EMX users into the Cadence University Program; and now, we are sharing how the Cadence Academic Network will be supporting the academic users of Numeca and Pointwise software solutions.
We are offering four academic packages for universities:
Different use cases of Fidelity software
More information on the Cadence CFD University Program bundles can be found here. In addition to university network licenses, individual student licenses are available, learn more here.
For the CFD users that are new to the Cadence Academic Network, we want to share some of the other benefits we offer beyond just licenses.
If you want to reach out to us and discuss what we can do for you, please write us to email@example.com. We are present in all regions where Cadence does business and we do our best to serve the academic community! For more information about the Cadence Academic Network, visit our website.
