Ansoft releases 3D full-wave electromagnetic field simulation software

Honolulu, H.I.—Ansoft Corp. has released HFSS v11, industry-standard software for 3D full-wave electromagnetic field simulation.

HFSS v11features new technology that delivers greater accuracy, capacity and performance compared with previous versions. HFSS v11 includes new higher-order hierarchical basis functions combined with an iterative solver that provides accurate fields using smaller meshes and thus more efficient products for large multi-wavelength structures.

A fault tolerant, high-quality finite element meshing algorithm allows
HFSS to simulate very complex models two to five times faster using half of the memory compared to previous versions.

“The new technology in HFSS v11 allows our customers to perform massive simulations of structures that were simply too large to solve previously,” said Zoltan Cendes, Ansoft's chairman and chief technology officer, in a statement. “Designers of high-frequency and high-speed components now have the ability to explore electromagnetic performance over a range of dimensions, orientations, material parameters and frequencies and hence to gain design insights that were not possible before.”

HFSS is the standard for 3D full-wave electromagnetic field simulation, a critical aspect in designing high-performance electronic devices that are more portable, smaller in size and operate at higher frequencies. These devices include RF/microwave components, on-chip passives, PCB interconnects, antennas and IC packages.

HFSS v11 is available on the following operating systems: Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, Windows XP x64 Edition, Windows Server, Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3, Solaris 8 and Solaris 9.
