Thermal-mechanical and ultrasonic cloud engineering simulation of a next-generation handset. This multiscale simulation study includes all aspects of the design – from system-level to detailed component-level. The time-domain 58 million degree of freedom simulation ran in the OnScale platform in under 25 minutes.


Silicon Valley, CA – OnScale, the leader in Cloud Engineering Simulation, today announces the availability of its Pay-as-you-Simulate SaaS model making scalable enterprise-grade simulation capabilities available to every engineer, on-demand.

Solving the Unmet Need for High-Performance Simulation and Digital Prototypes

To push the boundaries of innovation, engineers need more engineering simulation capability than ever before. Reliance on classic physical prototyping processes to innovate is simply no longer sustainable; however, traditional engineering simulation capability, a function of expensive software license availability and limited local hardware availability, also constrains innovation and holds companies back.

OnScale’s on-demand, scalable Cloud Engineering Simulation platform enables Digital Prototypes built by running thousands of full 3D multiphysics simulations in parallel through shared-memory, distributed cloud computing, and parametric simulation sweeps in the cloud. “In fast moving markets like 5G RF, engineers are pushing the boundaries of technology and realizing massive benefits from Digital Prototypes – in many cases, seeing a 90% reduction in overall cost, risk, and time-to-market compared with physical prototyping processes”, says Ian Campbell, CEO, OnScale.

Scale Your Simulation Needs with Limitless Compute Power – Without Involving IT and Without Breaking the Bank

OnScale has developed a disruptive software distribution mechanism to support the compute-intensive engineering simulation applications of the future including Digital Prototypes, Digital Twins, Simulated-Augmented AI/ML, Embedded IoT, and Simulation at the Edge. In a direction counter to existing legacy engineering software licensing schemes, OnScale has created a Cloud Engineering Simulation platform that removes all the traditional restrictions that limit the potential for engineers to innovate through simulation.

OnScale’s consumption-based model is based on the computational effort it takes to complete a simulation study. OnScale’s AI estimators accurately predict how much a simulation study will cost and how long it will take before an engineer hits run, allowing the engineer to manage tradeoffs between accuracy, solve time, and cost. OnScale’s engineers have experienced first-hand how legacy licensing schemes don’t scale up and down as needed. Thanks to this pay-as-you-simulate approach, engineers and engineering managers can now readily assess the ROI of their simulation work and manage their resources more effectively.

Further, as a cloud first SaaS simulation provider, OnScale requires zero IT support. Engineers can get set up on the OnScale platform in a matter of minutes and try out a fully featured version of the platform for free. Simulation guides are available at the OnScale website (https://onscale.com/simulation-guides/) for engineers looking for a quick start in advanced applications including MEMS, RF Filters, biomedical devices and NDT.
