The increasing complexity of integrated designs has pushed the limits of computing capabilities beyond a single CPU process. The ability to utilize remote and parallel computing can dramatically reduce the overall simulation time for resource-intensive problems, as well as optimization routines requiring hundreds or thousands of iterations. A new application note overviews the latest high performance electromagnetic (EM) remote and parallel computing features for circuit simulations within Cadence® AWR Design Environment® software, specifically the AWR® AXIEM® 3D planar and AWR Analyst™ 3D finite-element method solvers.
