Product development, computing and data intelligence solutions company, Altair has acquired Cambridge Collaborative’s SEAM software, a high-frequency noise and vibration predictive technology that can be used to improve sound quality and user experience within vehicles.
The addition of SEAM software to Altair’s portfolio of simulation and solver solutions will expand the company’s portfolio of engineering software. The Statistical energy analysis (SEA) feature embedded into SEAM software enables engineers and designers to identify and solve noise and vibration problems early in the design cycle, saving time and money, shortening product development cycles and improving the user experience.
“This sophisticated software has helped launch submarines, spaceships, cars and planes, and we are confident it will be a strategic complement to Altair’s portfolio,” said James Scapa, Altair’s chief executive officer. “We continue to focus on our mission of enabling our customers to innovate intelligently through the use of our cutting-edge algorithms.”
SEAM software will fall under the Altair HyperWorks platform and will be integrated with other Altair technologies like NVH Director and OptiStruct for noise and vibration analysis, and UltraFluidX to simulate noise with external aerodynamics studies.
“This is a terrific day for SEAM customers; not only can they continue to use SEAM to help their ideas take flight, but they soon will enjoy the benefits of the Altair ecosystem,” said Dr Patricia Manning, president of Cambridge Collaborative.
