As our company name suggests, EM is a subject we have ample knowledge and experience working with. Specifically, our areas of expertise include the modeling and simulation of numerous electromagnetic applications and the optimization of electromagnetic algorithms on commodity hardware platforms.
Whether naturally generated (i.e. solar radiation, lightning), or manmade (i.e. radio stations, cell phones, power lines), EM is all around us. Our offices, kitchens, and cars are all equipped with devices that rely on electromagnetic fields. EM comes into play every single time we turn a power switch on. The wireless communications revolution has EM at its very core. Voice and data information is transmitted and received via antennas. High frequency electronics, fiber optics, nanotechnology and almost every medical component on the market today require knowledge of electromagnetics.
Without a comprehensive understanding of electromagnetic fields, even the design of simple electronic components such as resistors, capacitors and inductors would not be possible. A complete understanding of electromagnetic field interaction, with matter at macroscopic as well as microscopic level, is also essential. In summary, most of the technological innovations we have seen in recent years are a result from the investigation, interpretation, and practical work done in EM — RF through the microwave and optical bands.
For over 10 years, our engineers have done extensive research across the electromagnetic spectrum and, as a result, have developed a number of computational electromagnetic tools – EMPLab, PBGLab, and FastFDTD, to name a few. While our technology focus has shifted and we are no longer directing engineering resources towards the development of these existing software tools, we continue to offer R&D services to our customers.
