Altair acquired 100 percent of EM Software & Systems – S.A. (Pty) Ltd and its international distributor offices in the United States, Germany, and China this month. This development adds the FEKO® solver to the HyperWorks® suite and strengthens the Altair simulation offering in the aerospace, automotive, and shipbuilding industries in particular, reflecting the commitment of the company to provide comprehensive, best-of-breed solutions to its customers. In addition, in-house electromagnetic expertise crossing multiple industries will enable the company’s consulting arm, Altair ProductDesign, to take on more responsibility in customer engagements where this specialized applied engineering knowledge is required.

Typical applications of FEKO include antenna design, antenna placement, electromagnetic compatibility analysis, bioelectromagnetics, radio frequency components, 3-dimensional electromagnetic circuits, design and analysis of radomes, and radar cross-section analysis. Altair HyperWorks contains a number of industry-leading solvers, including OptiStruct®, RADIOSS®, MotionSolve®, and AcuSolve®. The addition of FEKO will help to address coupled electromagnetic-thermal and electromagnetic-mechanical problems, among others.

“Electronics and communications technology are driving additional complexity into product development on an unprecedented scale, making computational electromagnetic simulation very important to many of our customers,” said James R. Scapa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Altair Engineering, Inc. “We are extremely happy to welcome the expert knowledge base and cutting-edge technology of EMSS to the Altair family, and look forward to exciting future developments in both FEKO and complementary technologies for multiphysics simulation and design optimization.”

The European FEKO User Meeting will be convened today during the European Altair Technology Conference in Munich. A multi-day FEKO training course is also being offered.
