Acceleware and Vector Fields accelerate microwave design
20 June 2008Tweet
Acceleware and Vector Fields announced a partnership to accelerate microwave design by combining Vector Fields’ Concerto automation software package with Acceleware’s FDTD Accelerator solution.
Vector Fields produces software for modelling and analysing electromagnetic equipment and effects, and Acceleware develops fast electromagnetic solver technology. Together, the technologies will offer RF engineers the tools they need to experience a 20-times performance increase in their electromagnetic simulations – shortening design cycles while greatly increasing the integrity of product design and safety. Vector Fields’ Concerto provides a design-simulate-analyse-optimise tool chain for high-frequency electromagnetic applications. Two-dimensional or three-dimensional component or system models can be created using an integrated geometric modeller, or imported from CAD programs. The package's applications span the high frequency spectrum and include antennas, waveguides, cavities and resonators, filters, connectors, microwave heating, and radar systems.
Acceleware’s Accelerator Card and ClusterInABox products harness the parallel processing power of Nvidia's GPU Computing architecture, which pairs with Vector Fields’ Concerto software to offer a turnkey solution for extremely fast electromagnetic simulation. This solution is delivered as a 'desk-side supercomputer' that is simple to manage, and available on-demand for engineers.
