Ansys Sherlock

Ansys Sherlock is the industry-leading reliability physics and failure analysis software that helps engineers predict and prevent electronics failures in complex systems.

Product Life Prediction

With Ansys Sherlock, you can quickly and accurately identify potential points of failure in electronic devices, allowing them to make informed decisions about product design and reliability. Its advanced algorithms and simulation capabilities enable you to simulate and analyze the behavior of electronic systems under various stress conditions, such as thermal cycling, vibration, and shock.

In post-processing simulation results from Icepak and Mechanical, and LS-DYNA, Sherlock can predict test success and estimate warranty return rates. Icepak, Mechanical, and LS-DYNA users are more efficient by directly connecting simulation to material and manufacturing costs.

Key Features

Sherlock uses your own design files to build 3D models for electronic assemblies for trace modeling, post-processing, and reliability predictions.

  • Builds and tests virtual products
  • Modifies designs in near real-time
  • Quickly runs mechanical simulations
  • Evaluates and optimizes design choices

We have only one winter per year…we have to shorten the entire process. Shortest ideas, shortest prototyping…with Discovery, modelling happens earlier in the process. It's a real game-changer.
