Korea rings in mobile phone simulations

9 May 2008



Acceleware, in conjunction with Schmid & Partner Engineering (SPEAG), announced Korea’s Radio Research Laboratory (RRL) is adopting its combined simulation solution to conduct the testing and certification of all mobile phone handsets in Korea.  

RRL is mandated to certify all mobile handsets for the Korean market as well as perform compliance testing and simulations to create national standards. The Acceleware and SPEAG accelerated simulation solution is currently used by RRL to solve advanced Electromagnetic Compliance (EMC), Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) and Signal Integrity problems to determine the electromagnetic safety of mobile devices for human exposure.

‘RRL is performing compliance testing and creating standards in Korea covering human exposure to RF fields as well as EMC and EMI,’ said RRL researcher Mr Sung-sik Kong. ‘The introduction of SEMCAD X combined with the Acceleware ClusterInABox Quad has improved our research potential by increasing our data processing capabilities. In addition, this new technology provides us with more powerful simulation software to solve advanced human exposure to RF fields and EMC/EMI problems.

’Based on the computing architecture of Nvidia’s Graphics Processing Units (GPUs), Acceleware’s products, paired with SPEAG’s SEMCAD X, provide a significant increase in speed to Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) simulations, offering a high-speed turnkey simulation solution that can quickly and accurately model regulatory compliance for cell phone manufacturers and other electronic devices. With this combined solution, RRL is able to expand their research capabilities for larger and more sophisticated electromagnetic simulations.
