What's New in Software Update 1.26

Since it is the giving season, our team at OnScale give you the gift of v1.26!
We are happy to announce more features and helpful changes to our platform. This brings an array of new features, improvements and bug fixes. In this update you can:
  • Add Primitives to 2D Models
  • Use an expanded selection of boundary conditions
  • Use calculations and equations within the parameter table
  • Create Time Averages as outputs
  • Archive multiple jobs at once

Update Highlights:

Adding Primitives to 2D Models

With v1.26 launched, you can now use 2D primitives in the designer workspace, 2D models can be used as a quick assessment gaining insight into a device's performance before moving to a fully 3D simulation, you can find out more about how to how to build 2D models with primitives in the tutorial below.

Calculations and equations in the parameter table
Now users are able to add scientific formulas and calculations to the parameter table. These calculations can even use the parameters already in the table.


Updated and New Boundary Conditions
There is now a wider selection of boundary conditions in designer, so now you can apply different boundary conditions to different regions of a model.

How to Design a Better RF MEMS Resonator for 5G Smart Devices

In the rapidly developing world of Internet of Things (IoT), the radio frequency front-end (RFFE) of smart devices will have to handle higher data rates and access the full bandwidth of 4G/5G wireless technology. The reason for this, of course, is the growing demands of ubiquitous low latency data at higher operating frequencies required to accommodate enhanced data transmission capabilities and rapidly growing numbers of users.

Ultrasonic Sensors 101: How They Work, and How to Simulate Them

In this blog post we discuss how ultrasonic sensors work and how a vibrating piezoelectric disc generates ultrasonic waves. We have also included an interactive demo to show you how to simulate an ultrasonic sensor in OnScale using Finite Element Analysis. An ultrasonic sensor is a system that can emit and receive ultrasonic waves. It is generally used to sense the distance to and from an object. It also belongs to the family of “transducers” because it generates ultrasonic waves from an alternating voltage. Thus, it transforms electrical energy into acoustic energy.
