HFWorks is a 3D electromagnetic simulation software for RF, Microwave, antenna, and high frequency and high speed electrical and electronics devices and circuits. HFWorks solves electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetic waves, electromagnetic interference, and electromagnetic compatibility problems for RF frequencies and beyond. It uses state-of-the-art finite element solvers and meshing technologies to compute both fields, antenna and circuit parameters. Field parameters include near and far electromagnetic fields and waves such as electric field, magnetic field, and electromagnetic energy. Antenna parameters include antenna pattern, antenna gain, antenna directivity, axial ratio, and antenna efficiency. Circuit parameters include scattering parameters, impedance, and VSWR.
Solidworks and Ansys SpaceClaim embedded
HFWorks is seamlessly integrated in Solidworks and Ansys SpaceClaim and Gold Certified by SOLIDWORKS® Corporation. Its seamless CAD integration enables you to analyze the most complex high frequency and high speed electrical and electronics devices and circuits in record time because you do not need to create a special model for the electromagnetic simulation. Don't "reinvent the wheel", simply grab a CAD model from the drafting department or colleague and start your 3D EM simulation instantly. Since it is built on top of the most popular CAD software packages, you can import designs in a wide range of popular CAD and geometry kernel formats including Parasolid, ACIS, IGES, STEP, STL, CATIA, ProE, DXF, DWG, etc,.
Integrated Thermal Solver
HFWorks comes with an integrated Thermal Solver. Hence, in addition to the plethora of electrical and electronic design parameters, you can also obtain the temperature, temperature gradient, and heat flux of your high frequency design due to conductor and dielectric losses. Unlike competing products where you often need to export your heat loads to a separate thermal software, HFWorks offers you a hassle-free coherent environment where you can simultaneously study the electrical and thermal aspects of your design right on the same model with one single finite element mesh.
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. Whether you are interested in frequency response, resonance behavior, electromagnetic interference, matching networks, filtering characteristics, attenuation, electromagnetic radiation, electromagnetic waves, electromagnetic compatibility issues, you will find this 3D field EM simulation tool accurate, fast, versatile, and easy-to-use. It is equipped with three solvers: Antennas, S-parameters, and Resonance.
