With our highly efficient solvers, full 3D models can be simulated in short time frames to allow your full design to be evaluated without assumptions and simplifications. Here is a quick example of 3D transducer stimulated with a pulse and ringing down in an open air environment.

Pentagonal FBAR Simulation

First few cycles of a pentagonal shaped FBAR. The video shows surface velocity, like you’d see on a laser vibrometer in the lab. Full simulation runs for 3,000 cycles and builds up a full spectral analysis of the device from a single run! This design was Optimized using Matlab’s Genetic Algorithm via FlexConnect.

GDSII is an industry standard file format for integrated circuit (IC) layout artwork which is now compatible with PZFlex. The video offers a quick demonstration of how the tool works and how to generate a model from a GDSII file.

Wave Propagation in a Cracked Block

PZFlex simulation of a plane wave propagating from the left side of a steel block, encountering an angled defect at approximately 1/3 of the way along its length. This simple example showcases a number of fundamental features of ultrasonic wave propagation, such as reflection, refraction and mode conversion. Note the Rayleigh wave running along the crack surface.
