Applications

A full-featured EM simulation solver, XFdtd outpaces other methods in efficiency as the number of unknowns increases. XF includes full-wave, static, bio-thermal, optimization, and circuit solvers to tackle a wide variety of applications, including antenna design and placement, biomedical and SAR, EMI/EMC, microwave devices, radar and scattering, automotive radar, and more.  It also works with Remcom's ray-tracing products to provide thorough simulation capability at the low-, middle-, and high-end of the electromagnetic spectrum.
