ANSYS HFSS

4.5
(3)

ANSYS HFSS software is the industry standard for simulating high-frequency electromagnetic fields. Its gold-standard accuracy, advanced solvers and high-performance computing technologies make it an essential tool for engineers tasked with executing accurate and rapid design in high-frequency and high-speed electronic devices and platforms. HFSS offers state-of the-art solver technologies based on finite element, integral equation, asymptotic and advanced hybrid methods to solve a wide range of microwave, RF and high-speed digital applications.

"The best tool for electromagnetics analysis"

What do you like best?

Its user-friendly feature is one of the best features. You can draw what in your mind is and do your simulations. I bet it is the best software in terms of accuracy as I compared its results with measurements and they were perfectly matched. Students can take advantage of the student version from this link:https://www.ansys.com/academic/free-student-products

If you look at the publications in IEEE Transaction on Antenna and Propagation, you can find out that authors mostly use HFSS for their simulations.

What do you dislike?

Probably defining the boundary conditions is a little complicated and needs experiences to set the correct one with correct dimensions. Its documentation is far behind the abilities of the software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Nowadays in antenna and microwave design, there are two big software, HFSS, and CST. As an engineer who used both in an advanced level, I prefer HFSS as it is more versatile in drawing and design.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my previous project, I was antenna and RF designer. So I used HFSS for designing and simulating different antennas and antenna arrays. In my previous project, I was antenna and RF designer.

"The most-trusted EM simulator for academia as well as industry."

What do you like best?

HFSS form Ansys is one of the best 3D EM simulators for high-frequency structures in the market from my point of view. The way you can model your own 3D structure and the flexibility you have is not in any other software. In addition, the simulation time can be dramatically reduced when you have great GPU or Multi-core machine and use the HPC feature of HFSS.

What do you dislike?

When you have a pool license type, you can get some delays when initiating the analysis to fetch the right license.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Accuracy, speed, and flexibility are the most features I use HFSS for.

What Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Best software when It comes to learning about different concepts of radio frequency"

What do you like best?

The best thing that I like about this software is the ease of use, setup and admin. It helps you in having better understanding about the concepts that you have learnt theoretically it provides you with the practical platform where you can make use of the concepts that you have learnt and can actually put them in use for manufacturing a product say like a microstrip patch antenna according to your preference and try designing the same with different dielectric materials.

What do you dislike?

The thing that I hate about this software is it almost took me 1-2 weeks time to get well versed with the software and to understanding different tricks and tips about this software.

Recommendations to others considering the product

One of the best software in the business. Worth giving it a shot. I do recommend everyone in the field of electrical engineering having their focus on radio frequency concepts and related work should try this software at least once.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used this software for implementing and manufacturing different microstrip antennas of different shapes and sizes and also with different materials and also used it to analyze the performance of these antennas.
