ANSYS Acquires Electronics Automated Design Analysis Leader, DfR Solutions

ANSYS has announced the completion of acquisition of all assets of DfR Solutions, the developer of Sherlock, the industry's only automated design reliability analysis software.

ANSYS' comprehensive multi-physics solutions, combined with DfR Sherlock's accurate reliability analyses, is expected to provide a complete designer-level toolkit enabling customers to quickly and easily analyze for electronics failure earlier in the design cycle – saving users time and money during the development process.

Companies are under continued pressure to develop groundbreaking products as advances in autonomous driving, electrification and internet of things continue to accelerate – increasing design complexity and making it more difficult to guarantee the reliability of electronic components and systems.

DfR’s Sherlock provides customers with a turnkey solution that seamlessly imports from ECAD and leverages embedded part libraries to enable engineers to rapidly build and analyze 3D models of electronic assemblies. Engineers can then subject their products to several environmental stresses, including temperature and power cycling, harmonic vibration, mechanical shock and bending, to help ensure manufacturability and maximize the life of a product.

Headquartered in Beltsville, Maryland, DfR Solutions has customers across a range of electronic technology markets and industries – including avionics and aerospace, automotive, consumer electronics, industrial, medical, defense and telecommunications – that rely on Sherlock to address their product challenges.

The acquisition will give ANSYS customers the ability to push electronics reliability analysis earlier in their design cycles, saving significant costs on testing and accelerating product design.
