For EM Circuit Simulation :
For EM circuit simulation you can go for :-

1. Ansoft HFSS
2. Sonnet
3. AWR Microwave Office
4. Agilent Eagleware
5. CST Microwave Studio

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

For Antennas Simulation:

1. Zeland IE3D
2. Ansoft HFSS

////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

To begin with you can download Sonnet lite version and startup.

As far as EDA tool is concerned evaluating to the "best" can be said based on the problems.

thankyou for your information thankyou very much
but can you tell what is the latest version o f Ansoft HFSS that works on windows7 and vista

Added after 2 minutes:

thankyou very much aaea3.
i hope i will download all the links soon

sagar474, you did not specify any details of your application. You will not be able to get reasonable response this way. It would be beter if you write your problem specification and ask how to model it.

e_m_c is correct. Depends if you need multiple types of physics simulated (Comsol), if you can use 2 or 2.5 dimension vs. full 3D, what frequency range (HFSS not good for optics and such), etc. Comsol, HFSS, CST Microwave Studio are all standard full 3D simulators. If you want more circuit simulation, ADS and Momentum work well together and give some EM possibility.

And if you want to buy any of them they're all extremely expensive, like >$10,000.
