Remcom announced an updated version of its electromagnetic simulation software, XFdtd Release 7 (XF7), which includes several geometric modeling additions and new performance efficiencies. The upgrade, which updates the software to Release 7.2, contains enhancements that simplify and speed overall usability:

• Additional modeling capabilities that enable more precise control over cut geometries when sketching complex models

• Simplified sampling interval settings for Frequencies of Interest (DFT)

• Simulations using averaged materials now exploit XStream GPU acceleration technology

• XFSolver intelligently records which XStream devices are being used for simulations, allowing multiple simultaneous XStream simulations on a single machine

• Performance of Broadband Far-Zone (previously known as Transient Far-Zone) computations have been dramatically improved

• Additional efficiencies in CAD import, particularly for large models with many assemblies

• Improved performance for simulations with large amounts of steady-state field data

XF7 is available in both Pro and Bio-Pro versions. Both include XStream GPU acceleration, 32- or 64-bit analysis module, geometric modeler and postprocessor, shared memory multiprocessor (MPM) at eight cores, and a comprehensive variety of 3D CAD import modules. The Bio-Pro version also includes SAR capability and high fidelity human body meshes.
