Wireless Connectivity

Wireless Connectivity

Altair® Feko® is the leading tool for antenna design, antenna placement and coupling, virtual test drives and flights, radio frequency interference, radar and radio coverage and planning, and spectrum management. It provides a unique solution combining installed antenna performance with wireless coverage analysis, and its hybrized and parallelized solvers permit customers to efficiently analyze complex and electrically large problems. Thanks to its WinProp and WRAP technologies it also includes fast and accurate wave propagation models for all scenarios from indoor through urban and rural to nationwide.

Electromechanical Systems

Electromechanical Systems

Altair® Flux® models even the most complex electromechanical systems with proven accuracy. It provides multiphysics capabilities – magneto static, steady-state, and transient conditions, along with electrical and thermal properties – to optimize machine performance, efficiency, dimensions, cost, and weight, and it is used to develop sensors and actuators, in addition to high-power electrical equipment including transformers, insulator, power bars, and circuit breakers. Electric rotating machines can be quickly developed in Altair® FluxMotor®. Then, with the power of the Flux solver available within Altair® SimLab®, Altair’s process-oriented multidisciplinary environment, users can run a selection of tests, try different configuration, compare results, and optimize performance all within an intuitive user experience.

RCS and Radomes

RCS and Radomes

Feko enables customers to analyze performance for a wide range of electrical sizes and industries to answer radar cross-sections (RCS) questions for automotive, energy, communications and defense. Leveraging the integration of multiple solvers, the complex multiphysics problems posed by radomes - protecting antennas, contributing to aerodynamic efficiency, and delivering the desired electromagnetic transparency - can be accurately analyzed.

Electromagnetic compatibility and electromagnetic interference

EMC and EMI

Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) have become key topics with the proliferation of connected devices, both for component integration and satisfying EMC regulatory requirements. Flux can evaluate the magnetic field radiated by power cables and busbars, and the effect of external fields on the operation of sensors or actuators. Feko can simulate the radiation and irradiation of cables, antennas, and devices to inform the design of effective shielding.

Radiation Hazard and Bio-EM

Radiation Hazard and Bio-EM

Humans are exposed almost everywhere to electromagnetic fields, which at sufficiently high-power levels can adversely affect health. Due to technical advancements new field sources are constantly being added in the environment and for electronic devices compliance with the legal regulations must be verified. Feko is used across industries to evaluate and provide insight into the interaction of electromagnetic fields inside or close to the body considering compliance with regulations that limit the absorption rates, including SAR, and the temperature increases in the body.
