AURORA, IL – Vector Fields Inc. has introduced a new variant of Concerto, its advanced RF and microwave design software. ConcertoES offers 3D Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) analysis at a lower cost of the full version. It is being introduced with the release of Concerto version 6, which comprises Concerto's advanced 3D geometric modeler and FDTD solver.
ConcertoES can reportedly be easily upgraded to the full-scale version of the design suite. Both versions use the same geometric modeler and model formats remain the same, making it easier to reuse models across the range.
"Reducing the cost of FDTD modeling is a significant step to take,” said Managing Director Kevin Ward. “While the full-scale version is competitively priced, we were aware that not everyone can afford, or needs, all of the advanced capabilities that it provides. That is why we decided to introduce ConcertoES, allowing engineers to pay less for top design performance."
