What about IE3DZeland???

What do you think about this EMsimulator? I want to start using it because I need to do some designs for my company. Is IE3D a good and accurated simulator? I'd like to know all your opinions about this software , advantages and drawbacks, in order to decide if is IE3D the correct tool. Thanks a lot

What about IE3DZeland???

Hi Javirulo,

I think IE3D is a very good and user friendly software, I have used it for a while, and a friend of mine made some of his research on microstrip antenna using it. He used version 10 with evaluation license. He told me that it is accurate but it gives some shift in the resonant frequencies due to the assumption of infinite substrate. and infinite ground. However, it cannot be used with 3D structures, so if you are planning for 3D antennas (horn or parabolic), you should look for Microwave Studio, HFSS or FEKO.

Hope this might help,
Adel

Re: What about IE3DZeland???

note that IE3D can handle many 3D problems. (otherwise why would they call it xx3D?)

I don't know if IE3D can do 3D structures, that is a good information, thanks loucy, I will check this out.

However, I wanted to correct that HFSS and Microwave studio cannot be used with electrically large antennas such as parabolic antennas. I think the best would be a mix of EM and physical optics. I think this is done in Microstripes and superNEC.
