XFdtd Applications

A full-featured electromagnetic simulation solver, XFdtd 3D EM Simulation Software 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.

5G MIMO: Remcom’s EM simulation software provides a complete 5G solution, from system and MIMO antenna design through performance assessment in realistic, simulated environments, and planning for deployment in 5G networks.  Our mission is to provide accurate solutions so customers can reliably predict how their systems will behave in the real world.

Antenna Design: Antenna technology is constantly advancing to meet the growing demands of industry.  Likewise, Remcom has been keeping pace in order to provide engineers with antenna simulation software that matches their processes and helps them meet their device design requirements.

Antenna Placement: Remcom’s antenna modeling software tools ensure proper design and placement of antennas in almost any application. Our simulation tools can work alone or together for a complete analysis of how an antenna will perform.

Mobile Device: Precision is key when designing today’s complex mobile devices, and engineers can’t afford discrepancies between device efficiency and simulation results.  Remcom users see less than a 0.5 dB difference in device efficiency when compared to electromagnetic simulation results.

Automotive Radar: Simulation technology has advanced to meet more stringent design requirements for 24 GHz and 77 GHz automotive radar sensors including blind spot detection (BSD) and lane change assistance (LCA). Remcom offers an integrated approach from sensor design to drive test scenarios.

ESD Testing: Utilizing XFdtd's electrostatic discharge testing simulations allows engineers to pinpoint locations susceptible to ESD damage and optimize ESD mitigation during the concept and design stage of product development.

Metamaterials: XF supports simulations of devices containing metamaterials including negative index materials, electronic band gap structures, and frequency selective surfaces. Special materials including frequency dependent models, anisotropic and ferrite materials, and computational extensions to the FDTD method are also supported.

Microwave: Remcom's XFdtd software is well-suited for any microwave device design or analysis task.Whether the application is waveguides, power dividers, filters, couplers, or the like, XFdtd can provide quick, efficient, and accurate EM simulation results.

Touchscreen Capacitance: Capacitive sensors are commonly used as touchscreens to detect the location of fingers or a stylus on the screens of smart phones, tablets, computer screens, music players, and computer touch pads. XFdtd computes the capacitance of complex sensor designs, allowing designers to choose the best geometry for their needs without prototyping.

Biomedical: Remcom's EM simulation tools speed the design and certification process by allowing realistic simulations of device performance before the costly prototyping stage. Analysis options are both device-oriented, such as tuning, and bio-interaction related, including SAR. Realistic, posable human body models are available in addition to CAD-based SAM phantom.
