Cadence Design Systems (NSDQ:CDNS) announced yesterday that Butterfly Network (NYSE:BFLY) deployed its Cadence Clarity 3D Solver in its handheld ultrasound system.
San Jose, California–based Cadence said in a news release that its Clarity 3D solver was used to support and enhance the design of Butterfly’s handheld, single-probe, whole-body ultrasound system.
Clarity 3D is used as part of Butterfly’s system design and analysis workflow for its speed and capacity, eliminating the need to partition the design and sacrifice accuracy to extract the circuit’s electromagnetic behavior, Cadence said. Butterfly achieved a five-times speedup in advanced model characterization with high accuracy compared to an alternative solution, while Clarity 3D allows the users to optimize designs and ensure the critical signal and power integrity of the system.
Butterfly Network Co-Founder & Engineering VP Nevada Sanchez said in the release that Cadence’s system enables the Butterfly engineers to identify design problems quickly and accurately, allowing them to get products to the field sooner.
“The unique role our products play in effectively simulating and optimizing Butterfly’s complex technology and enabling delivery to the healthcare market as quickly as possible is highly rewarding,” Cadence VP of Multiphysics System Analysis (Custom IC & PBC Group) Ben Gu said. “We look forward to continuing to partner with Butterfly to design critically important next-generation medical equipment using the complete robust design and analysis capabilities provided by our Virtuoso, Allegro X, Clarity, Celsius and Sigrity X technologies.”
