How Verathon Used OnScale to Cut Their Simulation Time by 80%

Verathon’s engineers leveraged OnScale’s Cloud HPC multi-physics software to accelerate virtual prototyping which drastically cut their simulation time from months to hours.

Verathon is a global leader in medical devices in over 60 countries and regions.

The company pioneered a novel ultrasound medical diagnostics device and spearheaded product development for solutions that minimize infection and optimize efficiency for patients. The engineering team at Verathon chose simulation with OnScale while working on designing their most sophisticated ultrasound transducer to date, in order to cut down on prototyping and to drastically cut their development costs and time-to-market.

THE CHALLENGE
A pain point for Verathon has always been limited computing resources for crucial simulation work. For their ultrasound sensor technology, the engineering team needed to rapidly evaluate new transducer technologies and select the optimal design for participation in a multiproject wafer (MPW) run at a MEMS foundry.

OnScale multi-physics simulation allowed the team to go from a whiteboard sketch to a complete sensor design in less than 2 months. This particular concept was Verathon’s most sophisticated ultrasound transducer to date, featuring a MEMS design, unfamiliar design rules, and performance trade-offs.
