Published on

As threats to national security evolve and increase in sophistication, electronic technology is advancing to detect and mitigate these threats. Physics-based simulation is a key enabling design tool for developing innovative robust electronic detection systems. In addition, the impact of using simulation tools on project cost and schedule is directly aligned with design for affordability initiatives. Learn more about the role of physics-based simulation and the importance of multi-physics capabilities for the design of robust electronic systems.
