Advanced Micro Devices
- Reduced file transfer times from hours to minutes
- Eliminated prototype boards, saving thousands of dollars annually
- Shortened file search time dramatically
- Improved collaboration between mechanical and electrical engineers
Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) is a leading semiconductor design innovator. AMD’s graphics and computing technologies power a variety of solutions, including PCs, gaming consoles, and the servers that drive the Internet and businesses around the world. The chip manufacturer’s Thermo-Mechanical Engineering Group needed capable 3D design tools to develop thermo-mechanical packaging for its products and a PDM system for collaborating across locations.
AMD chose SolidWorks® Premium design and SolidWorks Enterprise PDM product data management solutions to develop its products because the software is easy to use, facilitates collaboration between electrical and mechanical engineers via CircuitWorks™, and supports work across multiple locations. By selecting SolidWorks solutions, AMD reduced file transfer times from hours to minutes, eliminated prototype boards and saved thousands of dollars annually, shortened file search time dramatically, and improved collaboration between mechanical and electrical engineers.
