Updated November 10, 2011: An on-demand downloadable recording is available at this link: On-demand Webcast: Which EM Solver Should I Use?
Oliver Heaviside wrangled Maxwell’s equations down to the fab four, so why are there about four thousand different EM solvers? Why so many techniques and implementations? When to use which? What’s the quasi- in quasi-static? (Hint: check out the posting Meaning of Quasi-static) If there’s a full wave solver, why isn’t there a half wave solver? Isn’t ‘3D planar’ an oxymoron and isn’t the 0.5 dimension in a 2.5D solver a bit like being half pregnant?
To answer these questions (well, OK, not the joke ones 🙂 ) and more, we’re offering a free webcast entitled Which EM Solver Should I Use?
Why this presentation is important:
Different applications require different EM simulation technologies, but it is not always easy to determine which technology is best for a particular application. In this webcast we will review the most common EM simulations technologies in use today for RF, microwave and high-speed design projects: Method of Moments (MoM), Finite Element Method (FEM) and Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD). We will start with some background theory, and then show several application examples that highlight the strength of each technology.
Who should attend:
ADS users, EMPro users, RF & microwave designers, high speed digital and signal integrity engineers, RFIC/MMIC designers, RF SiP / module designers

For a quick preview of the EMPro (FEM and FDTD) part of our solution, please watch this five minute video. It provides an overview of the EMPro modeling environment, creation of parameterized 3D EM components for ADS, one-click ADS layout import capability, and how the FEM and FDTD simulators cover a broad range of applications.
