RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...

Agilent Technologies Press Release - November 16, 2011
Agilent Technologies Announces Shipment of 3-D EM Simulation Platform, Further Enhancing RF Simulation Speed
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Dec. 12, 2011 – Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced shipment of the latest
release of its Electromagnetic Professional software, EMPro 2011.11. The updated 3-D modeling and simulation
platform features enhancements to further speed and improve RF design and verification.
with Agilent's Advanced Design System, EMPro is used to create 3-D models and analyze electrical performance of
packages, connectors, antennas and other RF components. The EMPro 2011.11 release builds on advances made
available in the 2011.07 release, introducing key improvements to the finite-element method simulator:
o A fast FEM iterative solver that doubles the speed of simulations that include internal ports (which
had already been doubled in the previous release). This continuous improvement reflects Agilent's ongoing
commitment to fast-paced advancements in simulation technology.
o A user-defined passive loads capability. This allows users to include ideal passive loads directly in an FEM
simulation to represent matching circuits and surface-mount components. (The loads are defined in the EM setup
environment, which consists of common series and parallel RLC network topologies. This capability enables accurate
field visualization results and radiation patterns that take into account passive loads.)
o A fast,
two-dimensional port solver that simplifies FEM simulation port setup. The solver allows users to quickly and
easily determine the number of modes, as well as reference impedance and optimum impedance line placement.
U.S. Pricing and Availability
The EMPro 2011.11 release is now available for download. Pricing
for the EMPro environment starts at $7,000. Interested parties can evaluate the software by applying for a trial
www.agilent.com/find/eesof-empro-downloads-and-trials. They can also download application examples at
edocs.soco.agilent.com/display/eesofapps/EM+Applications. These examples cover a wide range of topics,
including packaging, antennas, RF PCBs, RF modules, connectors and radar applications.
