Altair has a comprehensive electromagnetics analysis portfolio that enables users to solve high-frequency and low-frequency electromagnetic analyses with a range of sophisticated solvers. With advanced material modeling capabilities, electromechanical power conversion applications, scriptability, and integration into a multiphysics environment, Altair offers users the best-in-class solution for electromagnetic simulation. Besides the products listed below, Altair has an additional suite of electromagnetic tools through their partner alliance program to deliver industry-specific solutions such as PollEx and newFASANT.
Flux is the low-frequency solver in the Altair Electromagnetics portfolio. It finds its strength in automating the design of electromagnetic devices such as motors, generators, coils, sensors, and actuators using an intuitive UI and scripting capabilities. It is able to utilize the thermal, electrical, and magnetic characteristics of components to estimate flux, saturation, and temperature in steady-state and transient conditions.
FEKO is the high-frequency solver in the Altair Electromagnetics portfolio. It is used extensively in various industries for antenna design and placement. The ability to hybridize both full-wave and asymptotic solvers allows the program to tackle electrically large problems and a wide range of applications such as RF, scattering, and electromagnetic compatibility. It stands out from the competition through its ability to export data to WinProp for wave propagation and radio network planning.
