HFWorks – High-Frequency Simulation – Antenna and Electromagnetic Simulation Software
HFWorks is an antenna and electromagnetic simulation software for RF, Microwave, mm-wave, and high-speed digital circuits. HFWorks solves electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetic waves, electromagnetic propagation, electromagnetic resonance, electromagnetic interference (EMI), electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and signal integrity (SI) problems for RF/MW frequencies and beyond. It uses state-of-the-art finite element solvers and meshing technologies to compute fields as well as antennas and circuit parameters. It can simulate single antenna elements as well as multiple array antenna configurations. HFWorks can also be used for time-domain computations such as TDR and Eye Diagram. It can predict the power handling capabilities of 3D structures and localize potential field breakdown areas. It also provides the capability to simulate RF microwave heating as a function of applied power.
Main Features and capabilities
Versatile High Frequency and High-Speed Tool: Whether your design involves antennas, RF and Microwave components, signal integrity, power integrity, EMC/EMI, chip-packaging, PCB, connectors, cables, RF MEMS, or filters and whether you use planar circuit technologies, standard waveguides or dielectric guides, HFWorks covers your high-frequency field simulation design needs for RF frequencies and much beyond.
Solidworks embedded: HFWorks is seamlessly integrated into Solidworks and Gold Certified by SOLIDWORKS® Corporation.
User-friendly interface and embedded learning materials: Intuitive and easy to use graphical user interface. The demo viewer feature in the software gives you access to extensive training material for fast learning and adoption of HFWorks.
Parametric simulation: HFWorks enables numerous analyses to obtain the best design for your application. Any CAD dimension or a simulation variable can be set as a parameter to study the effect of its changes on your design.
Time Domain Solution: HFWorks comes with a Time Domain Analysis type that helps designers to allocate discontinuities in connectors, adapters, cable transitions and high speed interconnect.
Integrated Electro-Thermal Analysis: HFWorks comes with an integrated Electro-Thermal Analysis. It offers you a coherent environment where you can simultaneously study the electrical and thermal behavior of your high-frequency design right on the same model.
Power handling: HFWorks produces safety factor maps that indicate where the breakdown has occurred in the model or where it is most likely to occur for a given level of excitation power or stored energy.
Grabcad, 3dcontencentral, trace parts: In recent years a burgeoning number of free 3D CAD models -millions- have become available in CAD depositories such as grabcad.com, www.3dcontentcentral.com, and www.traceparts.com. Consequently, you can simply grab a CAD model from the depositories, make necessary changes, and start your high-frequency electromagnetic analysis instantly.
