COULOMB, a powerful three-dimensional electrostatic design and analysis tool featuring our innovative Boundary Element Method (BEM) technology. COULOMB is especially well suited for applications where the design requires a large open field analysis and exact modeling of the
boundaries. COULOMB combines exceptional ease of use, speed and accuracy all in one fully-integrated package.
Design engineers depend on COULOMB for the design and analysis of electric/electronic equipment and components such as:
- insulators, bushings, grounding electrodes
- microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)
- high voltage shields
- power transmission lines
- telecommunication cables
- lenses for beam deflection
- microstrip and integrated circuits
- parts and assemblies subject to electrical fields
Quick, productive...up and running in no time
COULOMB maximizes productivity by allowing for the simulation of virtual prototypes on the computer. COULOMB significantly reduces design and prototype costs and provides engineers far greater insight into design optimization and
As easy as one, two, three
COULOMB provides fast accurate results, exact modeling of boundaries and easy analysis of open region problems. No Finite Element Mesh (FEM) is required. COULOMB delivers a powerful, easy-to-use design and analysis tool right to your
desktop. COULOMB goes to work in just three easy steps.
- Create your design through our geometric modeler or import from your CAD program.
- Assign the physical attributes of the model.
- Analyze the model, display the results and optimize for performance.
