Ansys has a collaboration with NVIDIA to develop next-generation simulation solutions powered by accelerated computing and generative AI. The expanded collaboration will fuse technologies to advance 6G technologies, supercharge Ansys solvers via NVIDIA GPUs, integrate NVIDIA AI into Ansys software offerings, develop physics-based digital twins and customize large language models (LLMs) developed with NVIDIA AI foundry services. 

Ansys recently joined the AOUSD to strengthen data interoperability and deliver enhanced graphics and visual rendering to its portfolio. Ansys has already connected Ansys AVxcelerate Autonomy to NVIDIA DRIVE Sim powered by the NVIDIA Omniverse platform, and plans to investigate additional integrations across the portfolio, including Ansys STK, Ansys LS-DYNA, Ansys Fluent and Ansys Perceive EM. 

In addition to Omniverse integrations, the collaboration will prioritize advancements in four areas:

  • Accelerated Computing: Ansys harnesses NVIDIA H100 Tensor Core GPUs to boost multiple simulation solutions and prioritizes NVIDIA Blackwell-based processors and NVIDIA Grace Hopper Superchips for products across the Ansys portfolio, including Ansys Fluent, Ansys LS-Dyna, and Ansys electronics and semiconductor products. Simultaneously, NVIDIA leverages Ansys technology, including semiconductor tools, to enrich virtual models and data center design.
  • 6G Telecommunications: Ansys is among the first adopters of the NVIDIA 6G Research Cloud platform, allowing researchers a suite to advance AI for radio access network technology. Ansys Perceive EM, a solver powered by Ansys HFSS, builds on NVIDIA 6G Research Cloud, which is designed to speed development of 6G technologies. Perceive EM’s synthetic data-on-demand enhances 6G system digital twins with elevated predictive accuracy, capable of assessing how real-world conditions impact wireless network performance. Perceive EM will also be available within the Ansys Academic and Ansys Startup Programs. 

  • AI-Enhanced Simulation: Ansys is exploring the NVIDIA Modulus framework for physics-based machine learning to boost its software with AI techniques. The work aims to deliver enhanced functionality within the Ansys AI+ product family.

  • AI Foundry: Ansys is examining adoption of NVIDIA AI foundry to advance LLM development, furthering the democratization of simulation by simplifying setup and use Ansys intends to leverage the NVIDIA NeMo platform, which offers a set of tools that make it easier to develop generative AI capabilities, the company says.

“We are excited to extend our collaboration with NVIDIA to enable a new frontier of generative AI and accelerated computing,” says Ajei Gopal, president and CEO at Ansys. “Within the dynamic realm of NVIDIA Omniverse, our visionary customers can propel innovation, bridging virtual and physical realities to shape tomorrow’s technologies and help solve the most pressing engineering challenges of our time.”

“Everything manufactured will have digital twins—and the world’s designers and engineers in heavy industry markets rely on Ansys as their simulation engine,” says Jensen Huang, founder and CEO of NVIDIA. “We’re collaborating with Ansys to bring accelerated computing and generative AI to these massive workloads, and to extend Ansys’ leading physics simulation tools with NVIDIA Omniverse digitalization technologies.”
