Electromagnetic and Electromechanical Simulation Software
Opera Version 19 is a major release which introduces significant new features into Opera, including enhancements to multiphysics capabilities and charged particle solutions. Many other minor changes have been made throughout the software to enhance its functionality and reliability. To find out more about the benefits of this latest release, see below:
In Opera 19 the only limit on tracks during a solution is the amount of memory available to store the tracks as they are being computed.
Additional system variables are available for use in defining emission regimes. This allows the user to create modifications to the standard emission strategies.
For users with Multicore licensing improvements in the way the solver computes tracks and in the way multithreading is handled has resulted in significant improvements in tracking accuracy and parallel tracking speedup.
Opera 19 offers the improved ability to accurately model particle dynamics in a magnetron sputterer. This includes modeling the electrons tied to the magnetic field lines, the production of ions in the plasma and the interaction between the ions and the target material and the resulting production of sputtered neutral particles.
A new solver technology, Direct Sparse Solver (DSS), is now available for a number of the solver modules in Opera-3d. This has the advantage of improved solver times for a number of model configurations as well as offering improved parallel (multi-threaded) solver speed up over the existing iterative solvers.
