Cadence Design Systems CDNS is set to acquire a simulation software company — Future Facilities — for an undisclosed sum.
Future Facilities provides electronics cooling analysis and energy performance optimization solutions for data center design and operations using 3D digital twins’ technology. The company has a strong clientele based across hyperscale, enterprise data center, managed services and colocation providers.
Future Facilities’ electronics thermal solution enhances Cadence’s Celsius Thermal Solver. It also had a computational fluid dynamics (CFD) electronics cooling simulation technology platform. Future Facilities combines CFD with various data center infrastructure management tools and cooling modules to replicate the impact of changes in servers on physical capacity, power infrastructure and cooling.
The combination of solutions offered by the companies will aid users in creating a 3D digital twin model that will improve prediction, visualization, and quantification of the impact of changes made to change the data center before application and during operations. This will enhance business goals with facility design and operational efficacy, stated Cadence.
The increasing global demand for digital twin solutions augurs well for Cadence. According to a report from Grand View Research, the worldwide digital twin technology market is expected to witness a CAGR of 39.1% from 2022 to 2030.
