If AXIEM isn’t faster than in-house commercial, competitive 3D planar EM tool, AWR will buy lunch for the whole design team.

AWR’s AXIEM EM simulator is the most accurate solver in its class and can solve large problems up to ten times faster than competing planar EM tools. AWR is so confident that AXIEM can solve complex problems faster than commercially-available, competing tools, that it will buy lunch for the entire design team if proven otherwise. AWR will either benchmark AXIEM for the team or the team can perform the benchmark itself. The challenge is open to anyone working at a commercial company located in North America, Europe, or Japan, and runs until June 30, 2009.

Entrants in the AXIEM Challenge must simply agree to the terms of the challenge that are described on AWR’s web site

About AXIEM: AXIEM software is the first to deliver EM analysis as a true upfront design technology and is seamlessly integrated within AWR’s Microwave Office® and Analog Office® software. Its speed, capacity, and accuracy allow designers to diagnose issues early, significantly shortening the design process. It was developed specifically for 3D planar applications such as RF printed circuit boards and modules, as well as RFICs, MMICs, and LTCC designs.
