Wind turbines located near a radar installation can significantly interfere with the ability of the radar to operate properly. Remcom has used our tools and expertise in radar scattering to perform a number of government-funded and internal research efforts into the impact that wind turbines and wind farms have on radar returns for Air Traffic Control (ATC) radar, early warning radar, weather radar, and instrumentation radar. We have also teamed with partners to investigate methods to mitigate this effect.
CST MPHYSICS STUDIO® (CST MPS) is seamlessly integrated into CST STUDIO SUITE®, enhancing the EM simulation tools by adding the ability to calculate thermal and mechanical stress effects. This easy-to-use tool allows a multiphysics approach for the complete simulation of devices.
Blink is the industry’s first modeling software to offer two different EM (electromagnetic) solvers for the design of passive devices. It allows IC designers to model new passive devices within a normal Cadence Virtuoso based integrated circuit design flow. It quickly characterizes spiral inductors, baluns, transformers, MIM caps, interdigitated capacitors, and transmission lines for RFIC and mixed signal IC design.
Complex cable bundles/harnesses cannot be solved by full 3-D EM solvers due to excessive computational resource requirements. Instead, such analysis is done by solving 2-D fields at selected positions, or cuts through the bundles to determine the transmission line (TL) characteristics. These characteristics are then used within a Spice-equivalent network simulation to calculate the currents and voltages along the 3-D cable path.
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.
