PCBs can be difficult to model for mechanical analysis because they have a large number of components of various materials all contained within small dimensions. To overcome these challenges, PCB models are often simplified for analysis. However, modeling with too few details can lead to insufficient results, while including too many details can lead to computationally expensive models. The type of analysis to be performed and the board design can also call for varying levels of detail.
This webinar will help guide analysts on the level of detail required when setting up PCB models.
