Trace Mapping


ANSYS Mechanical Premium Capabilities

Trace Mapping

Creating models of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and integrated circuits (ICs) often involves oversimplification and assumptions to avoid computationally expensive and laborious creation of models with trace material modeled discretely. Trace mapping enables you to import ECAD files in a vast array of formats used extensively in PCB and IC development, and choose to what extent trace material is mapped onto meshes within the model. You are free to refine the model around areas of interest. Models can be built in minutes, not hours, meaning the behavior of electronic components and systems can be understood in thermal, static and dynamic environments.
