Electromagnetic simulation software allows engineers to investigate the electromagnetic properties of components or whole systems efficiently, with virtual prototypes transforming the design cycle. Electromagnetic (EM) phenomena exist in various frequency ranges, from statics to optical frequencies. Dedicated solvers exploit specific numerical technologies for fast and accurate simulation. Electromagnetic systems also pose multiscale challenges, such as very wide frequency ranges and electrically large structures with very fine detail, which can be overcome by hybridization of solution methods or use of High Performance Computing (HPC).
Co-design within the SIMULIA product portfolio integrates EM simulation into industry processes, allowing multiphysics design flows on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and driving the development process from the earliest stages.
Electromagnetic simulation software is a game changer, not just in the high-tech industries of electronics and communication, but also in aerospace, defense, transportation and life sciences. Analysis with EM software ranges from individual components such as antennas, sensors and chips up to entire devices, including aircraft, smartphones and MRI.
