WESTFORD, MA – Zuken and Electro Magnetic Applications have entered into a partnership to improve the accuracy of cable harness simulation models for complex electrical subsystems in aircraft and vehicles.
The collaboration enables design teams to assess, simulate, and validate electrical and electronic designs before they reach manufacturing. The collaboration between EMA’s EMA3D cable modeling platform and Zuken’s E3.series cable harness design software brings design information to the analysis process. Users can now transfer design information directly into the EMA3D analysis platform.
EMA3D is a 3-D finite-difference time-domain solver with an integrated multi-conductor transmission line solver. It is suited for simulations that address EMC, HIRF, and lightning strike requirements early in development before physical prototypes are complete.
“EMA3D enables engineers to efficiently analyze complex cable subsystems and evaluate protection schemes for the transportation and aerospace industries,” said Timothy McDonald, Ph.D., president of EMA. “Collaborating with Zuken to bring the cable harness design details directly into EMA3D will accelerate the time to prototype and improve the level of EMI protection.”
“As products become more and more complex, the ability to access and analyze a design for electrical integrity before manufacturing becomes a basic necessity,” said Kazuhiro Kariya, CTO and managing director of Zuken, Yokohama, Japan. “EMA is the ideal partner to address these challenges with their expertise in the analysis of electromagnetic effects in large systems. Combining Zuken’s E3.series and EMA’s EMA3D platform is an example of digital engineering at its best.”
