Sandia RF & Microwave Day 2013
ANSYS Electronics Updates
This session provides a full update on ANSYS highfrequency software with design examples from
microwave, antenna and high-speed electronics
applications. Topics include new features in HFSS
(matrix solver through HPC multithreading, HFSS-IE
solver using preconditioner, antenna-related features,
spectral decomposition, and multiphysics) and
DesignerRF; advanced numerical techniques such as
finite elements, both frequency and transient based,
and method of moments and physical optics, all
combined with hybrid solution approaches; HPC; and
high-frequency circuit simulation
Robust Design for RF/Antenna Applications
ANSYS HFSS 15.0 includes new enhancements of the
Hybrid Finite Element and Integral Equation Method,
providing an efficient solution for electromagnetically
large models with complex sources. Radiators
comprised of mixed material types are modeled
seamlessly across solve domain methodologies. In this
work, we will present the hybrid features, and
demonstrate how and where to apply these new
features to improve the efficiency and capacity for
various applications.
Bidirectionally Coupled Full-Wave EM to Thermal
Stress Simulation
This session details RF/microwave systems simulation
in a real-world multiphysics environment. It
demonstrates the ANSYS HFSS 15.0 comprehensive
solution capable of performing bidirectional coupled
analysis between EM, thermal, structural mechanics
and fluid flow.
