VI-grade has released the latest update to its NVH Simulator, version 2021.0, which it says incorporates significant new features and capabilities, and completely revises the pricing model and product structure to enable easier technology use and accessibility.
The NVH Simulator solutions were recently incorporated into the VI-grade portfolio of automotive simulations solutions. Together with the rest of the company’s simulation solutions for ride and handling, ADAS and HMI applications, they provide automotive product development professionals with the tools they need to accelerate product development across a wide range of automotive applications, and from a single source.
VI-grade says it has continued to refine its NVH Simulator solutions over time, resulting in significant improvements in automotive product development efficiency.
“Many leading auto makers and suppliers depend on the NVH Simulator to bring their sound and vibration data to life, to experience, understand, communicate and make decisions on NVH issues faster than ever before possible. Now more than ever, automotive engineers and designers rely on virtual prototypes, including NVH virtual prototypes, to accelerate the design process and make critical design decisions,” noted Dave Bogema, director of NVH Solutions at VI-grade.
“The NVH Simulator technology has been provided through Brüel & Kjær for 15 years, and has enjoyed the benefits of being developed under the auspices of Brüel & Kjær, who have a long tradition of excellence in sound and vibration innovation exceeding 75 years.
“With over 50 Desktop NVH Simulators and full-vehicle Static NVH Simulators installed and in use around the world, the NVH Simulator solutions have become mainstream solutions for accelerating product development.
“With this release, we not only wanted to provide the usual abundance of new and expanded functionality, but also make the solutions more scalable and bring them within reach of everyone who can benefit from the NVH Simulator technology.”
