Low Frequency
Electrostatic A 3D solver for simulating static electric fields.
Stationary Current A 3D solver for simulating the flow of DC currents through a device, especially with lossy components.
Magnetostatic A 3D solver for simulating static magnetic fields.
Low Frequency - Frequency Domain (LF-FD) A 3D solver for simulating the time-harmonic behavior in low frequency systems that is useful for simulations of coils used for wireless power transfer.
Low Frequency - Time Domain (LF-TD) A 3D solver for simulating the transient behavior in low frequency systems which include eddy currents, non-linear effects and motion. Resistive-capacitive effects may also be modeled.
System Simulator Multi-domain and state-space simulation.
Multiphysics
Steady State Calculates the stationary temperature distribution of a system. Heat sources can include electric and magnetic fields, currents, particle collisions, human bio-heat, and other pre-defined sources.
Transient Thermal Calculates how a system heats over time. Heat sources can include electric and magnetic fields, currents, particle collisions, human bio-heat, and other pre-defined sources.
Conjugate Heat Transfer Combines thermal and fluid dynamics simulation methods, and can calculate the heating of a device while taking convection and fan cooling into consideration.
Mechanical Offers linear and non-linear methods for calculating the displacement and deformation of structures.
Particle Dynamics
Particle-in-Cell A versatile, self-consistent simulation method for particle tracking that calculates both particle trajectory and electromagnetic fields in the time-domain, taking into account the space charge effects and mutual coupling between the two.
Particle Tracking A 3D solver for simulating particle trajectories through electromagnetic fields.
Wakefield A solver that calculates the fields around a particle beam and the wakefields produced through interactions with discontinuities.
EMC and EDA
PCB Solvers A tool for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) analysis on printed circuit boards (PCB).
Rule Check An EMC, SI and PI design rule checking (DRC) tool that reads popular board files from Cadence, Mentor Graphics, and Zuken as well as ODB++ (e.g. Altium) files and checks the PCB design against a suite of EMC or SI rules.
Cable Harness Solver Dedicated to the three-dimensional analysis of signal integrity (SI), conducted emission (CE), radiated emission (RE), and electromagnetic susceptibility (EMS) of complex cable structures in electrically large systems.
