MEM Research releases EM3DS 2008 (version 10).

November 24, 2008 -- Pescara, Italy: MEM Research, a leading company developing high frequency EDA tools and providing design services, has released EM3DS 2008, version 10 of the popular Electromagnetic 3D Simulator.

The new version includes a macro-model builder, enabling the real-time tuning of a parametric structure, as well as enhanced help and animated tutorials, reducing the time needed to manage all the advanced features available in this tool.

A trial full version (30 days) as well as a completely FREE version with some limited functionality is available at

EM3DS is:

  • Low-Cost Fast Method-of-moments (MoM) based full-wave solver
  • Includes 2.5D and 3D EM solvers with one click mode of operation change
  • it is the first EM software to include modeling of piezo-electric bulk acoustic wave resonators (FBAR; coupled EM/acoustic modeling)
  • Specialized for planar and quasi-planar layered structures, is also able to model DR, dielectric discontinuities, thick metals, and active FET devices by using volume currents
  • Features parametric geometries and materials and automatic full-wave optimizer
  • Includes a new macro-model builder, to predict with reasonable precision in real-time how the response changes to a parametric modification
  • Includes a broad-band Spice-model extractor
  • Antenna charts (polar plots, far field 2D and 3D view)
  • Metal enclosure (shielded structures), absorbing boundaries (antennas) and magnetic walls (symmetry problems)
  • Script Engine (Pascal) for full customization of EM3DS
  • Internal ports (both planar and via): suitable for package modeling
  • Differential Ports
  • Several new calibration techniques
  • SmartFIT, an adaptive frequency selection algorithm: response on 50-500 frequency points available from the analysis of 5-10 frequencies
  • Asymptotic Evaluation: fast wide-band analysis
  • Import/Export geometry in GDSII/DXF/BMP formats
  • Seamlessly integrated in the AWR’ Microwave Office tool
  • Handles external files in Touchstone format
  • Includes a set of powerful pre- and post-processing tools in order to edit, visualize geometry and current distributions in 2D and in 3D, to animate, to create AVI and GIF movies, plot S/Z/Y/Antennas parameters in rectangular and Smith’ charts, and much more
  • Also included is a linear circuit solver to connect lumped elements to the full-wave analysis
  • Floating and node-locked licenses
  • Animated tutorials and intuitive context help
