Tech-X has released VSim7, an electromagnetic time-domain three-dimensional solver with particle and plasma simulation capabilities.

It uses a package model to customise the physics engine to meet the needs of customers needing electromagnetic, microwave device, and plasma simulation capacity.

New is this release is VMesh – a mesh generator that makes gridding up complex geometry easier and blazingly fast. VSim 7 now supports STEP CAD files, in addition to the STL and VTK formats. The VSim for electromagnetics package has simplified problem setup. VSim7 also improved external circuit modelling capabilities, new analysis capabilities, and improved plasma modelling capabilities.
