Three-dimensional time- and frequency-domain electromagnetic fields, magnetic diffusion, eddy-current analysis
Aether is one of the most advanced programs available for 3D electromagnetic fields at a fraction of the cost of competing products. The unified finite-element package handles all stages of a solution: mesh generation, field calculation and interactive analysis. The program has three modes of operation that cover the full spectrum of applications:
The Pulse and RF modes feature automatic implementation of the non-radiative limit for pulsed magnets and RF fields with eddy currents. Aether is coded in FORTRAN 95 for incredible speed. The Basic package runs on 32 and 64 bit Windows computers. The professional package features unlimited memory access and efficient parallel operation on 64-bit multicore computers.
- Pulse mode: EMI and end-to-end simulations of pulsed-power devices.
- Res mode: Resonant frequencies and Q factors of complex 3D structures.
- RF mode: Fast frequency-domain simulations of microwave and RF devices.
