A common HPC use case involving the simulation of computer chip designs, circuit boards, or similar items. For example, simulating how the design of a die for a given CPU chip will actually work when powered up, or doing the same for an entire circuit board of components like a server motherboard design. Usually an MPI-based workload, as the simulations involved involve the same space of calculations—i.e., the workload revolves around computing how all the electromagnetic forces in a given simulation all interact with each other.
