EM simulator identifies sensitive tolerances

New in version 7.0 of the High Frequency Structure Simulator (HFSS) from Ansoft – a full wave finite element electromagnetic simulator – is an optimisation and parametrics module called Optimetrics and a significantly faster solver engine.

With Optimetrics, Ansoft says HFSS is the only EM based design tool that allows users to import parametric simulation results directly into the optimiser. This enables engineers to understand characteristics and quickly identify the highest performance design that is least sensitive to manufacturing tolerances.

A new multi-frontal matrix solver is six times faster than the previous version.
