Precision filter designers are often faced with the need to optimize filter designs using highly accurate full wave microwave electromagnetic (EM) solvers to overcome modeling limitations in standard microwave circuit simulators. However, using an EM solver within an optimization process can be very time-consuming.
FEKO Suite 7.0 sees the addition of a Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) solver to its comprehensive set of powerful computational methods as well as the hybridization of the Multilevel Fast Multipole Method (MLFMM) with Physical Optics (PO). Three new import file formats are also now available.
Determining the final set of component values in a matching network can be a challenging process. Traditionally, RF engineers have had to simplify and idealize their matching circuits in schematics that are separated from the EM simulation. This simplification into a lumped element schematic requires perfect grounds and leaves out the coupling and transmission line effects of the interconnect metal and the antennas.
The Re-Entry Vehicle Toolbox from the IDS Computational Electromagnetic Laboratory has been integrated into the ADF-EMS v5.1 system. The software aims to provide a set of capabilities for the analysis and optimization of RF links between a re-entry vehicle and ground or satellite relay stations.
FEKO software is a comprehensive electromagnetic (EM) analysis software suite, building on state of the art computational EM (CEM) techniques to provide users with software that can solve a wide range of electromagnetic problems.
The CST STUDIO SUITE® Student Edition is a free, downloadable program developed to introduce students to the world of electromagnetic simulation. This edition provides access to CST’s powerful visualization engine and some of the most advanced solvers of CST STUDIO SUITE, in order to make Maxwell’s equations easier than ever to understand.
