ANSYS HFSS software is the industry standard for simulating 3-D full-wave electromagnetic fields. Its gold-standard accuracy, advanced solver and high-performance compute technology have made it an essential tool for engineers doing accurate and rapid design of high-frequency and high-speed electronic components.

arrow Watch the video below to learn how HFSS, the gold-standard, full-wave electromagnetic field solver, will help you solve your most challenging RF, microwave and high-speed designs.

HFSS offers multiple state-of the-art solver technologies based on finite element, integral equation or advanced hybrid methods to solve a wide range of microwave, RF and high-speed digital applications. The software includes a linear circuit simulator with integrated Optimetrics for input and matching network design.

Each HFSS solver incorporates a powerful, automated solution process, so you need only to specify geometry, material properties and the desired output. From there, HFSS automatically generates an appropriate, efficient and accurate mesh for solving the problem using the selected solution technology. With HFSS, the physics defines the mesh; the mesh does not define the physics.
