Ansoft Corp. has released three-dimensional, full-wave HFSS v11 that 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. The new version of EMF simulation software features improved accuracy, capacity and performance.

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," Zoltan Cendes, Ansoft chairman and chief technology officer, said 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 3-D full-wave EMF 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 for Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional, Windows XP Professional, Windows XP x64 Edition, Windows Server, Red Hat Enterprise Linux v3, Solaris 8 and Solaris 9.
