How much does HFSS cost?

How much does HFSS cost?

Prices for HFSS version 9 start at $40,000. All HFSS capabilities are integrated within the HFSS Desktop, a new design environment for 3-D structure and electro-magnetics-based design.

How do I open HFSS files?

HFSS Information. Once the client comes up, go to start and go to ANSYS menu GO to Workbench and within Workbench click HFSS. Once there, click on Geometry (or someting else in the menu of the HFSS) and then the Electronics Desktop will open up. That is HFSS!!!

How is HFSS different from other simulation tools?

HFSS is based on Finite Element Method (FEM) which is more accurate for designing antennas while CST is based upon Finite Integration in Technique (FIT) and is also popular among antenna designers due to ease in simulations.

Why do we use HFSS?

Ansys HFSS is a 3D electromagnetic (EM) simulation software for designing and simulating high-frequency electronic products such as antennas, antenna arrays, RF or microwave components, high-speed interconnects, filters, connectors, IC packages and printed circuit boards.

Why can’t I solve frequencies simultaneously with HFSS 13?

HFSS 13 and prior versions did not support the HPC license in a way that would allow simultaneous solving of frequencies. These earlier versions required the DSO license to solve frequencies simultaneously, which explains your error. This was a new feature added to the HPC license in HFSS 14.0.0 though it was a bug that it would not work with DSO.

Can I distribute HFSS on a local machine?

I suspect once a distributed license is in place, you can distribute some or all tasks on a local machine if you want. There are certainly some parts of HFSS which the High Performance Computing (HPC) license permits, but I’m not exactly sure on that limits of that.

What are the solution types in HFSS?

HFSS Solution Types, Driven Modal and Driven Terminal, are closely related to the Port types. All four combinations of port and solution type are possible in HFSS. In the matrix above are a few examples are given with comments. Microstrip can be done in all four ways.

What are the different types of ports in HFSS?

Two main port types are wave ports and lumped ports. Ports can be used to compute network parameters (S, Y and Z Parameters) and field information. Both wave and lumped ports can be defined on a 2D surface in an HFSS model. Wave Port on microstrip Driven Modal Solution Type Lumped Port on microstrip Driven Terminal Solution Type 5
