SONNET® Suites Professional™ Release 12 now offers dramatically faster simulations through parallel processing on multi-core CPUs. Each frequency port is computed in parallel within the same computers. The package’s matrix solve algorithms used on a typical workstation with dual quad-core processors can achieve a speed increase that is nearly seven-fold. Two new versions of the EM analysis engine em™ have been introduced. The Sonnet Desktop Solver Engine is aimed at typical engineering desktop PCs and utilizes two cores in parallel for analysis time reduction. The Sonnet High Performance Solver Engine targets high-end workstations with dual-core quad CPUs and uses up to eight cores for eight-way parallel processing on single frequency. Combined with an improved meshing algorithm, these new simulation engines provide analyses as much as 50 times faster than the previous release.For more information, see the Sonnet Software, Inc. website.
