Solving Automotive Design Challenges with Simulation

Every vehicle operates in a constant state of flux. Not only must a car’s engine produce the necessary energy to propel the vehicle forward; its battery must also provide power to operate various electronic devices (sensors, radio, touch-screens, etc.) within the vehicle. These components, in turn, operate at different frequencies requiring constant DC to AC conversion. Electronic components must also withstand incredible temperature variation within a vehicle’s interior, from subfreezing to well over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
