Software uses parallel processing to accelerate multiphysics analysis
Cobham Technical Services has released an updated version of its flagship Opera software platform, which it says enables design engineers to accelerate multiphysics analysis by harnessing the parallel processing capabilities of multi-core processors.
With Opera-3d version 16, Cobham says users can now model complex devices with up to several hundred coils, in a smaller time frame than ever before.
Electromagnetic, thermal and stress analysis simulation also operate in parallel, allowing users to set up a chain of analyses of the same model and solve them sequentially.
The Opera-2d circuit editor has been extended to include additional functional components. Capacitors and inductors can be defined as fixed components or as functions of any parameter used in the simulation.
Version 16 of Opera-2d and -3d also sees the addition of a new dynamic graphing facility that enables users to generate graphs quickly and easily and with greater control over format and content.
Other major features include the addition of a tool for simulating magnetron sputtering and thin-film coating, and a volume plasma emitter.
