N3247A EMPro Fundamentals

2   Days | Classroom Training | Advantages of Keysight Training

RF and microwave engineers who design passive HF structures

The EMPro course teaches users how to efficiently create three-dimensional models using an advanced mechanical CAD front end and set these up for either FEM or FDTD electromagnetic analysis. The CAD user-interface uses constraintbased modeling technology which allows users to build complex models that can easily be edited. The modularity of the class allows it to be readily adapted to either include both simulation methods – Finite Element Method and Finite-Difference Time Domain method – or to make use of only one of the methods. Attendees learn how to define EM sensors for near and far fields, currents, and other quantities that can be derived from the simulations. Finally, users learn to display the data results using the built-in Post Processor (FEM and FDTD) or the Advanced Post Processor (FEM only).
