ANSYS Acquires Assets of Delcross Technologies


Reading time ( words)

ANSYS, the global leader of engineering simulation software, announced today that it has acquired substantially all the assets of Delcross Technologies, a premier developer of computational electromagnetic simulation and radio frequency system analysis software. The acquisition will enable ANSYS users to understand how antennas interact within their operating environments and how this behavior affects the system's overall ability to transmit and receive data without interference. Terms of the deal, which closed earlier this week, were not disclosed.

Driven by development for the Internet of Things, antennas are becoming increasingly pervasive across industries and products. Autonomous vehicles, smart metering, drones, bio-sensors and wearable electronics are just a few examples of products that now use one or more antennas and wireless systems to provide such services as voice, data communications, sensing and navigation. But these antennas and other electronic components can disrupt the operation of devices, a phenomenon known as electromagnetic interference, or EMI. Delcross' solutions identify and help mitigate EMI issues. 

"ANSYS will bring Delcross' industry-leading technology to a broader market and further strengthen our leadership in antenna design, wireless system performance and EMI prediction," said Jim Cashman, ANSYS president and CEO. "The combined ANSYS high-frequency solution will deliver an unequalled portfolio for wireless system design. When we pair this expanded electronics offering with our best-in-class structures and fluids solutions, our users can create more complete virtual prototypes of whole systems."

"The combination of ANSYS and Delcross provides a powerful solution for next-generation wireless system design," said Matt Miller, Delcross president. "The acquisition opens new system opportunities and better positions ANSYS to meet the simulation needs of these important applications. That's why the Delcross team and I are extremely pleased to join ANSYS."

Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

Hard to believe that a year ago, I was getting ready to attend DesignCon and IPC APEX EXPO and wondering if this Novel Coronavirus was going to cut into attendance from the Pacific Rim. Now, we’re accustomed to virtual trade shows. They’re not ideal, but they’re the best we can do while meeting in person is not possible. We’ve learned to adapt.
