The new release of Electromagnetic Professional (EMPro) 2010 is a "souped-up" version of the 3D EM simulator, designed to provide significant improvements in simulation speed and design efficiency for analyzing EM effects on integrated-circuit (IC) packages, connectors, antennas, and other RF components. The software will be on display at Agilent's booth, No. 924, on the 2010 IMS exhibition floor.

As Marc Petersen, Product Marketing Leader in Agilent's EEsof EDA organization, explains, "EMPro's speed, accuracy, and efficiency improvements go a long way in meeting the needs of today's high-frequency, high-speed device designers. These improvements also provide a significant benefit to users of our Advanced Design System software who are using EMPro within their design flow." Some of the new capabilities include faster finite element method (FEM) simulations through meshing improvements and use of symmetry planes; built-in acceleration of finite difference time domain (FDTD) simulations using graphics processor unit (GPU) hardware; and support for Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows XP, Microsoft Vista, and Linux operating systems.
