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.
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.
Design requirements for 24 GHz and 77 GHz automotive radar sensors are becoming more stringent as consumers increase demand for applications like blind spot detection (BSD) and lane change assistance (LCA). In turn, the engineering departments at Tier 1 suppliers like Delphi, Autoliv, and Continental are advancing technology in order to win bids from OEMs like BMW, Audi, and Chrysler.
Simulation technology has also advanced to meet design requirements. Remcom offers an integrated approach from sensor design to drive test scenarios.
WaveFarer™ is a high-fidelity radar simulator for drive scenario modeling at frequencies up to and beyond 79 GHz. Near-field propagation and scattering methods compute raw radar returns from target objects while considering multi-path interactions from ground reflections and other structures.
Electrostatic discharge testing is utilized worldwide by electronics manufacturers to determine the ESD susceptibility of their devices. It is extremely difficult to estimate the exact cost of ESD loss annually, but it can safely be stated that ESD requires the development and testing of many hardware prototypes and contributes to a high number of warranty claims and loss of consumer confidence if failure occurs in the hands of the customer. Given the high cost in time and materials associated with ESD hardware testing, the ability to simulate the ESD testing process in XFdtd is extremely valuable, allowing engineers to pinpoint locations susceptible to ESD damage and optimize ESD mitigation during the concept and design stage of product development.
Wireless InSite is a suite of ray-tracing models and high-fidelity EM solvers for the analysis of site-specific radio wave propagation and wireless communication systems. The RF propagation software provides predictions of EM propagation and communication channel characteristics.
Wind turbines located near a radar installation can significantly interfere with the ability of the radar to operate properly. Remcom provides radar scattering expertise for government-funded 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.
