The Cadence® Clarity™ 3D Transient Solver is a 3D finite difference time domain (FDTD) electromagnetic (EM) simulation software tool for simulating complex systems and subsystems. The Clarity Transient 3D Solver lets you tackle the most complex electromagnetic challenges when designing systems for 5G, automotive, high-performance computing (HPC), and machine learning (ML) applications with test-measurement accuracy.
Industry-leading Cadence distributed multiprocessing technology enables the Clarity 3D Transient Solver to deliver virtually unlimited capacity and 10X speed required to efficiently and effectively address these larger and more complex systems. Reporting is used for electromagnetic compliance (EMC) analysis, susceptibility analysis, antenna placement, biomedical analysis, and other applications.
The Clarity 3D Transient Solver produces results for voltage, current, field distribution, and field animation in the time domain. For frequency domain output, results include specific absorption rate (SAR), near/far field distribution, current distribution, and more.
Save Design Time with Parallelization
Historically, large systems have been analyzed at the sub-system level and results from full-system analysis come from the measurement of prototypes in the lab. No more. We designed the Clarity 3D Transient Solver from the ground up to take advantage of your multi-core compute resources by parallelizing the mathematical tasks required to solve for 3D structures. The tasks can be parallelized within one computer’s cores or across multiple computers, cutting the time to solve for complex structures by 10X and even more.
Industry-leading parallelization technology ensures that simulation tasks can be partitioned and parallelized across as many computers, computer configurations, and cores as are available. The amount of time required to solve is scalable based on the number of computer cores. If a user can double the number of computer cores, performance will be nearly doubled as well.
Cost Savings Solving for 3D Structures with Cloud Infrastructure
Using web-based cloud servers to solve 3D structures can be an alternative to purchasing computing hardware. Instead of choosing large and costly servers, designers using the Clarity 3D Transient Solver can select lower cost cloud-computing resources and still maintain the highest performance. This flexibility can produce considerable savings on the cost of cloud computing expenses when solving for 3D structures.
