NEW FEATURE FDTD Simulations on Cluster of Networked Linux x64 Computers
Simulating FDTD projects on a supercomputer is the ideal approach. A single system with multiple processors coupled with significant RAM will prove most effective in calculating FDTD designs.
Another excellent solution is to setup a Linux cluster to distribute the computationally intensive load. In OptiFDTD 11, the user can now run FDTD simulations on a cluster of networked Linux x64 computers. This cluster implementation uses the same multi-threaded simulation engines as a single workstation and provides enhanced utilization of computer resources.
NEW FEATURE Parameter Sweep Visualization
During the simulations with Parameter Sweep GUI, power transmission spectrum and reflection spectrum data is stored in Observation Areas. The user may choose to export the collected data to be viewed in our Analyzer to better understand the performance and behavior of the design.
NEW FEATURE Access to Observation Object Data from VB Script
When using the Parameter Sweep feature during simulations, the user may access the power transmittance and reflection data stored in the Observation Objects at the end of simulations, to perform custom optimization algorithms.
