(BUSINESS WIRE)-- IMST is pleased to present the brand new edition of the leading 3D electromagnetic field (EM) Design Suite EMPIRE XPU, based on the powerful Finite Difference Time Domain Method (FDTD). The unique XPU technology guarantees a superior performance for a wide range of applications such as antennas, microwave circuits, components, chip design, medical equipment and much more.
Designing complex modules with highly integrated RF frontends for wireless communication, multimedia entertainment, and 5G mobile applications, for example, can be a real challenge for EM solvers but becomes an easy task with EMPIRE XPU.
The key features of the new edition are:
+ Intuitive 3D design mode
You can easily create and edit sophisticated models in 3D with little or no effort. The 3D design mode allows user friendly modeling and supports unlimited local coordinate systems. It perfectly complements the 2D design mode which has superior editing functionalities for planar multilayer assemblies.
+ Data exchange
EMPIRE XPU supports now all industry standard CAD formats, for example ODB++, ACIS, CATIA, IGES, and STEP, and supports direct data exchange between different field solvers.
+ Cloud computing
The Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud can be easily directly accessed via an encrypted connection from the EMPIRE simulation control. The EC2 cloud provides worldwide a large selection of instance types fitting all simulation needs from small single core PCs up to large 64 core workstations with 2 TB main memory.
Demo videos and tutorials are available at
An evaluation version of EMPIRE XPU 7.50 can be downloaded free of charge at
