Computational Electromagnetics

Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) is an important tool for for development of consumer products as well as for predicting and analyzing high-frequency radar signatures. These tools are utilized to evaluate interference reduction in electronic designs for component integration and compliance with FCC standards. SGI offers two complementary server architectures: the SGI® UV product line based on Intel® Xeon® processors and the SGI® ICE product line based on Intel® Xeon® or AMD Opteron™ processors. The computing capabilities of the SGI UV and ICE servers combined with advanced visualization and storage technologies provide efficient and cost-effective simulation environments for these CEM applications, which enable engineering teams to improve product geometries and coating materials without having to perform experimentation on costly physical prototypes.

SGI solutions for CEM maximize computational throughput and enhance the engineer's understanding of the effects of various design and process changes. Visualization, large shared memory, and cluster capabilities are integrated into a powerful solution tied together by a single, shared-file system that provides:

  • Capability to do more complex analyses on a greater variety of scenarios
  • Highest-resolution capabilities for simulations
  • Dramatic speedup in analysis time
  • Optimized performance of CEM software applications
  • Access to critical data where and when it is needed, so the engineering team can focus on creativity and innovation-not data management
