The ANSYS HFSS is industry standard software made to simulate 3-D full-wave electromagnetic fields. The HFSS features gold-standard accuracy, and advanced solver and high-performance computing technology, making it ideal for designing high-frequency and high-speed electronics found in communication systems, radar systems, satellites, smart phones, and tablet devices.
SPEAG's latest release of SEMCAD X introduces a new solver based on the Mode Matching Technique for the accurate and fast simulation of passive waveguide structures. The new solver has been integrated into the existing SEMCAD X framework to solve complex EM challenges in microwave industry. Together with the EM and Thermal solvers, SEMCAD X Microwave can be successfully applied to a wide variety of electromagnetic problems ranging from microwave devices, EMC, optics, to bio-medical applications.
Sonnet’s high frequency electromagnetic (EM) software can be used in the analysis of microwave circuit discontinuities, arbitrary microstrip and stripline circuits, planar (patch) antennas, planar spiral inductors, RFIC and MMIC circuits, multi-layer circuits like LTCC and PCB technology, planar filter analysis, and high density interconnects.
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.
The challenges involved with measuring an antenna’s radiation characteristics when it’s mounted on a large platform stem from the fact that it’s very difficult to accurately simulate an antenna’s interaction with an electrically large environment.
