HFWorks - Fully Integrated Microwave Design and Antenna Software

HFWorks is a complete 3-Dimensional field simulator for RF/Microwave and Wireless applications, based on the powerful finite element method. Currently, this microwave design and antenna pattern software is the only high frequency electromagnetic Add-in to SOLIDWORKS®, the #1 CAD software package.

HFWorks is Gold Certified by SOLIDWORKS® Corporation, and it is fully embedded in the software so you won't have to toggle between programs or deal with various formats. The HFWorks microwave design software includes three main solvers: Antennas, S-parameters, and Resonance.


The Antenna solver can help you find out how well your antenna radiates, what the pattern is, how much radiation resistance there is, and more, including polarization and axial ratios.

The S-Parameter (scattering parameter) solver can help you get the right figures for input impedance, return loss over frequency, insertion loss, and signal integrity, among other things. It can also help you understand microwave heating within your project to help avoid heat transfer problems and calculate changes to media thermal properties induced by the temperature variation in your project.

The Resonance solver can help you understand quality factors of your resonant structure, how changing geometry can impact your high-frequency resonance and how to optimize pole-zero placement in your microwave design, among many other related issues

The software covers a wide range of applications, including:

  • Dielectric Resonators
  • High Q Filters
  • Oscillators
  • Tuning Elements
  • Matching Circuits
  • Waveguide Twists And Bends
  • Waveguide Tees
  • Directional Couplers
  • Isolators
  • Circulators
  • Attenuators
  • Antennas And Feeds
  • Accelerators
  • Connectors
  • IC Packages
  • RF Coils
  • Emi Emissions
  • EMC Coupling
  • RF Mems
  • Chip-Package-Boards
  • PCBs

HFWorks high frequency field simulation software empowers you to gain physical insight into the performance of your microwave and antenna designs through the computation of important parameters such as resonance frequency, dielectric and conductor quality factors, scattering matrix, antenna pattern, antenna gain and directivity, impedance, admittance, VSWR, propagation parameters, field eigenvalues, far fields, electric and magnetic fields, SAR, and more.

HFWorks stands apart from competing microwave design software and software for antenna design by letting you quickly and easily compare alternative designs and create clone analysis studies. It also allows for modeling of air parts and gaps and makes utilizing metallization applications in printed circuit boards with split surfaces effortless. The software also comes with an extensive library and the best data and visualization tools in the industry. HFWorks lets you easily share results with complementary packages for multi-physics projects.

Whether you design circuit components or antennas, whether you use planar circuit technologies, standard waveguides or dielectric guides, HFWorks covers your needs. This fully-integrated antenna and microwave design software was created to help you quickly and easily solve the most complex problems in the industry with validated simulations and advanced calculations you can trust. Whether you are interested in frequency responses of antennas and circuits, resonance behaviour, EMI or EMC, we invite you to try this 3-D field simulator by choosing a trial download or scheduling a free demo with one of our electromagnetic software sales specialists today.
