Altair acquires EM Software & Systems

Altair has acquired EM Software & Systems and its international distributor offices in the United States, Germany, and China. This move adds the FEKO solver to Altair's HyperWorks suite and offers an improved suite of tools for the aerospace, automotive, and shipbuilding industries in particular.

it will also enhance electromagnetic expertise at the company’s consulting arm, Altair ProductDesign, as typical applications of FEKO include antenna design, antenna placement, electromagnetic compatibility analysis, bioelectromagnetics, radio frequency components, 3-dimensional electromagnetic circuits, design and analysis of radomes, and radar cross-section analysis. 

Altair HyperWorks contains a number of solvers, including OptiStruct, RADIOSS, MotionSolve, and AcuSolve.  The addition of FEKO will help to address coupled electromagnetic-thermal and electromagnetic-mechanical problems, among others.

‘Electronics and communications technology are driving additional complexity into product development on an unprecedented scale, making computational electromagnetic simulation very important to many of our customers,’ said James R. Scapa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Altair Engineering. ‘We are extremely happy to welcome the expert knowledge base and cutting-edge technology of EMSS to the Altair family, and look forward to exciting future developments in both FEKO and complementary technologies for multiphysics simulation and design optimisation.’
