Remcom has introduced a new version of XGtd, its high frequency ray-based EM (electromagnetic) simulation software. Version 2.8 includes new co-site analysis features, support for KMZ and COLLADA geometry files and a 64-bit graphical user interface (GUI).
Co-site analysis features allow users to calculate paths and coupling between transmitters and receivers for EMI/EMC assessment. The addition of transceivers simplifies co-location of functionally independent transmitters and receivers, Remcom states. Different transmitter and receiver properties may be assigned to a common transceiver location, including antenna gain pattern, antenna rotation and waveform.
According to a company press release, the 64-bit GUI improves performance when processing complex, memory-intensive models. Projects have also been made completely portable so users can move or copy an XGtd project between devices.
“Users will notice significant changes with this release, including sophisticated upgrades that make the software more intuitive and streamlined. The co-site analysis updates are particularly useful when constructing and analyzing an antenna coupling project. And usability updates such as drag-and-drop functionality in the project view and the new 64-bit GUI improve performance and efficiency for users,” says Ruth Belmonte, product manager for XGtd.
