Altair Development S.A. (Pty) Ltd
100 Exploration Way, Ste. 310-B
Hampton VA 23666
United States

Altair acquired 100 percent of EM Software & Systems – S.A. (Pty) Ltd and its international distributor offices in the United States, Germany, and China in June 2014. This development adds the FEKO® solver to the HyperWorks® suite and strengthens the Altair simulation offering in the aerospace, automotive, and shipbuilding industries in particular, reflecting the commitment of the company to provide comprehensive, best-of-breed solutions to its customers. In addition, in-house electromagnetic expertise crossing multiple industries will enable the company’s consulting arm, Altair ProductDesign, to take on more responsibility in customer engagements where this specialized applied engineering knowledge is required.

FEKO® (www.feko.info)offers several solution techniques (MoM, MLFMM, PO, GO Ray Launching, UTD and FEM) under a single licence. Hybridisation of these techniques enables the efficient analysis of a very broad spectrum of EM problems e.g. 3D antenna design, antenna placement on electrically large structures, microstrip-antennas, microstrip-circuits, EMC, biomedical and scattering. With the MLFMM, and the true hybridisation of the solvers, FEKO® is considered a market leader for antenna design and placement analysis.

Products

FEKO Suite 7.0

May 27, 2014

7.0

With the belief that no single computational EM (CEM) method is capable of solving the whole spectrum of problems, EMSS introduces fully integrated finite difference time domain (FDTD) and multilevel fast multipole/physical optics (MLFMM/PO) hybrid solvers. FEKO’s Suite 7.0 release will take the next step toward a complete solution.

FEKO Suite 6.2

September 12, 2012

Suite6.2FEKO Suite 6.2 introduces several completely new features to FEKO.  Characteristic mode analysis (CMA) is the numerical calculation of a weighted set of orthogonal current-modes that are supported on conducting bodies (similar to waveguide modes). The eigencurrents are independent of any specific source or excitation and thus only depend on the shape and size of the conducting body.

A Novel RF Coupler for SMART Utility Meter Remote Antenna Applications

In this paper the authors investigate and present a patent pending novel micro-strip coupler structure that exhibits very low RF insertion loss (high coupling) while insuring high electrical isolation (>10kV) between the wireless Network Interface Card (NIC) RF connection and the external antenna.

Download

Planar Structures

Microstrip filters, planar antennas and other RF structures are solved efficiently using the planar Green's function. Only the stripline or antenna needs to be discretised with this method. Ground planes are treated implicitly by the formulation and do not add to the number of unknowns.

Download

Windscreen Antennas

Antennas are increasingly incorporated into the windscreens of automobiles. FEKO has a special formulation to design the antenna and calculate the effect of the vehicle on the radiation pattern of the antenna.

Download

Radiation Hazard Analysis

The combination of the integral equation (MoM) and the differential equation (FEM) solvers allows the efficient solution of real world radiation hazard problems e.g. calculating the effect of an antenna's radiation on humans sitting inside a vehicle. SAR is calculated according to international standards.

Download

Cable Harness Analysis

The combined MoM and the Multi-conductor Transmission Line (MTL) theory enables the analysis of coupling into and radiation from cable harnesses in their real-world environments.

Download

EMC

Several extensions and special solvers are used in FEKO for efficient EMC analysis, e.g. adaptive frequency interpolation, cable harness analysis, SAR calculation, low frequency stabilisation, time domain analysis. Applications include shielding and coupling investigations, reverberation chamber design and EMC test environment modelling.

Download

Waveguide and RF components

Offering both a MoM and a FEM solver FEKO is well-suited for the full-wave analysis of waveguide structures e.g. Magic-T coupler, slotted waveguide antenna, cavity- and waveguide filters. Port modes are specified or calculated and near-fields and S-parameters are extracted with ease.
