The programs we distribute

FasterCap. Capacitance extraction at scale.

Our premium 3D and 2D multi-platform parallel capacitance field solver

FasterCap is a powerful three- and two-dimensional capactiance extraction program.
Build upon state-of-the-art technology, overcoming the limitations of FastCap2, and able to handle lossy dielectrics, with automatic mesh refinement, error control, and out-of-core capabilities, FasterCap can handle huge geometrical models without resorting to any windowing technique, and therefore preserving the far-away interactions for maximum accuracy.
Out-of-Core capabilities are also greatly enhanced by the recent widespread availability of the new solid-state Hard-Disks with fast access times. Combined with the smart FasterCap algorithms that efficiently serialize the data for sequencial access, big amounts of fast virtual RAM are available for supporting huge simulations.
FasterCap improves the capabilities of the premium 'golden reference' FastCap2 software, while preserving the accuracy for which FastCap2 is renowed. For large simulations FasterCap is faster, requires less memory, and provides additional capabilities with respect to FastCap2.
FasterCap is available for MS Windows as well as for Linux 32 and 64bits operating systems, in binary and source formats, in our download section.

FastCap2. Golden reference capacitance extraction.

Windows porting of the well-known 3D capacitance solver FastCap

FastCap2 is a software for computing the self and mutual capacitances of conductive three-dimensional structures embedded in a dielectric. The dielectric can be homogeneous or inhomogeneous.
A de-facto golden reference standard, FastCap2 is derived from FastCap, originally developed by Keith Nabors at M.I.T. on Unix platform for the solution of Maxwell equations and extraction of capacitiances.
Binary and source code versions, including the original M.I.T. code, are available from our download section. The original FastCap source code distribution is also available directly from M.I.T. at the link in our links page.

FastHenry2

FastHenry2. Golden reference inductance extraction.

Windows porting of the well-known 3D inductance/resistance field solver FastHenry

FastHenry2 is a software for computing the frequency-dependant self and mutual inductances and resistances of a generic tridimensional conductive structure, in the magnetoquasistatic approximation. It can also generate Spice-compatible, multiple-frequency equivalent-circuit models.
A de-facto golden reference standard, FastHenry2 is derived from FastHenry, originally developed by Mattan Kamon at M.I.T. on Unix platform for the solution of Maxwell equations and extraction of inductances and resistances.
Binary and source code versions, including the original M.I.T. code, are available from our download section. The original FastHenry source code distribution is also available directly from M.I.T. at the link in our links page.

FastModel. View your models.

Windows 3D viewer and text editor for FastCap2, FasterCap and FastHenry2 files

FastModel is our 3D viewer and text editor for FasterCap, FastCap2 and FastHenry2 files.
FastModel provides a front-end graphical interface that allows you to easily model and see in real time the geometry described in the field solvers input files. FastModel supports FastHenry2 and FastCap2 input file formats, including the Patran interface for FastCap2, as well as support for non-hierarchical FasterCap files.
Binary and source code versions are available from our download section.

FastImp. Full-wave impedance extraction.

Surface-based, wide bandwidth, fast field solver.

FastImp is a program for accurate analysis of wide-band (full-wave) electromagnetic effects in very complicated geometries of conductors. It is based on a surface formulation, therefore the geometries are defined only through surface panels, making it easy to describe arbitrary shapes.
FastImp has originally been developed by Zhenhai Zhu at M.I.T. on Unix/Linux platform for the wide-band solution of Maxwell equations.
Binary Linux version and source code, including the original M.I.T. code, are available from our download section. The original FastImp source code distribution is also available directly from M.I.T. at the link in our links page.

E.M. Workbench. Fast Field Solvers front- and back-end.

Modern, powerful and free front-end and back-end interface for the Fast Field Solvers

FreeCAD is a parametric 3D CAD modeler. Parametric modeling allows you to easily modify your design by going back into your model history and changing its parameters. FreeCAD is open-source, multi-platform and highly customizable, scriptable and extensible.

The Electro-Magnetic workbench is being developed to offer a modern, powerful and free front-end and back-end interface for the Fast Field Solvers, with the intention to eventually replace FastModel.
The E.M. workbench is a FreeCAD plug-in written in Python language, and must be installed on top of FreeCAD.
The source code is available from our download section.
