xfdtd software

Hi,

another commerical software that uses FDTD is semcad. https://www.semcad.com. It has a student license selling at $99 (online) that allows you to simulate up to 10 objects and you have the same level of access to technical support and downloads as the full licensed user Affordable as it is, the down side is that it may not be as powerful as xfdtd or CST MWS. Check it out for yourself Element7k #### Mica188 ##### Member level 2 downloads xfdtd 6.0 Element7k said: Hi, another commerical software that uses FDTD is semcad. h**p://www.semcad.com.

What you mean exactly by scattering? FDTD does scaterring naturally..
Don't you mixed it up with another Remcom's product Wireless insite?
BTW Semcad is somwehat special product because of coupled thermal module and some biological stuff.

What do mean the programme is so hard to setup, do you mean the input data, geometries? Right now, a new version 6.1 is release, do you think it has some improvement?

some buttons for making some solid bodies appeared in version 6.0.
Remcom Site said:
Version 6.1 improves on the solid foundation of version 6.0, adding powerful new features like sweeping, shelling, mouse-driven editing, and adaptive meshing.
i think xfdtd is much more userfriendly now.

Hi eirp

I have told that you can't use waveguide port only probefed is it right ?

The last Ver 6.3 it can run on linux.

in middle 2006 also CST 2006 will run on Linux.

Mica188: cst and hfss have good agreement with RCS.
