Physware Unveils PhysPack-S 3D Full-Wave Electromagnetic Solution

Physware, Inc., a provider of high-speed, 3D field solutions for the high-frequency package and board markets, introduced PhysPack-S, a fully automated, high-speed, high-capacity, three-dimensional full-wave electromagnetic (EM) analysis solution for signal integrity.

“The constant trend towards higher levels of integration and faster data exchange rates in all semiconductor markets has placed tremendous pressure on package designers to provide compact, high-performance solutions. Our customers have told us that existing chip-centric and board-centric analysis solutions do not provide the accuracy and speed needed for meaningful package design insights,” said Dr. Feng Ling, Physware Vice President of Engineering. “They clearly need a package-centric, high-throughput analysis solution that rigorously accounts for a broad spectrum of physics from low-frequency inductance variation to high-frequency radiation. PhysPack-S has been designed from the ground up to provide a highly automated, scalable analysis solution to fill that need,” he added.

PhysPack-S supports industry-standard input and output formats and features automated port setup, automated and layered transparent mesh generation and automated boundary conditions. Based on innovative integral equation methods that employ finely tuned order-N fast hierarchical algorithms and advanced pre-conditioning methods, PhysPack-S is scalable to meet the needs of any level of complexity in analysis. PhysPack-S’s multi-threaded architecture accommodates hybrid distributed-shared memory computing systems, providing significant speed up through multiple cores and/or CPUs.

PhysPack-S is currently in beta release with select customers world-wide. General availability of PhysPack-S is scheduled for Q1 2008. PhysPack-S supports Windows and Linux OS.
