HFWorks is a high frequency (MHz to millimeter wave) electromagnetic simulator that uses a full wave approach to model electric and electronic components and systems. It includes s-parameter or scattering parameters, antenna or radiation, and resonance or eigenvalue simulation.
Take a first look at HFWorks
Electromagnetic software packages significantly facilitate the designer’s task by reducing the need to build physical prototypes, hence reduce the time to market. Unfortunately, most of the commercial electromagnetic software packages that may be utilized for this end are difficult to use. In addition, they oftentimes require from the designer to simplify the geometry, which can result in the loss of critical details and thus affecting the performance of the end product. EMWorks’ products make the exception. They are fully and seamlessly integrated inside Solidworks. Consequently, the electromagnetic designer needs not to simplify the geometry or worry about CAD. The design can indeed be taken from drafting straight to analysis.
HFWorks is a 3D field simulation software fully integrated inside Solidworks, for RF, microwave, and wireless applications. It includes multiple solvers covering: Antennas, 3D passive structures (S-parameters), resonant structures and RCS calculation.
HFWorks covers a wide range of applications such as dielectric resonators, high Q filters, oscillators, tuning elements, matching circuits, waveguide twists and bends, waveguide tees, directional couplers, isolators, circulators, attenuators, antennas, EMI emissions, EMC and coupling, etc.
HFWorks is based on the powerful finite element method (FEM), which solves the physical equations rigorously and without any simplifications or assumptions. It is designed to help you gain physical insight into the performance of your designs through the computation of important parameters such as: resonance frequencies, Q-factors, scattering matrices, antenna patterns, antenna gain and directivity, and field distributions.
Whether you design circuit components or antennas, whether you use planar circuit technologies (MIC, MHMIC, MMIC), standard waveguides or dielectric guides, whether you are interested in frequency responses of antennas and circuits, resonance behavior, or scattering from objects, EMI or EMC, HFWorks covers your needs.
HFWorks is seamlessly integrated inside SOLIDWORKS, allowing you to run your simulations right on your models without the need for re-importing data with each design modification.
