PLANO, Texas, March 10, 2009 – Siemens PLM Software, a business unit of the Siemens Industry Automation Division and a leading global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, and Remcom, Inc. of State College, Pennsylvania, a market leader in the field of electromagnetic simulation software, today announced that Remcom has licensed the D-Cubed™ software component product 2D Dimensional Constraint Manager (2D DCM) and incorporated it into the latest release of its flagship product, XFdtd® Release 7.0 (XF7).
XFdtd provides engineers with design, simulation and analysis tools for modeling the electromagnetic characteristics and effects of a variety of devices including antennae, microwave circuits and wireless communication devices. Among a wide range of enhancements, XF7 has introduced significant improvements in its CAD modeling capabilities, including a new parametric sketcher that is based on the D-Cubed 2D DCM.
“The D-Cubed 2D DCM was integrated with XF7 to enable our customers to more productively create solid models, whether building new parts, or editing features in imported parts,” said Bradley Flubacher, Senior Software Engineer at Remcom. “We selected the D-Cubed 2D DCM because it was clearly the most credible option in the market. The D-Cubed 2D DCM’s status as the industry-standard sketching engine, coupled with an excellent support service and the stability of Siemens PLM Software as a component supplier, ensure market-leading value for Remcom and our customers.”
“As the world’s leading supplier of geometric constraint management technology and components, our software solutions – such as the D-Cubed 2D DCM product – are used in most of the leading mechanical CAD, CAM and CAE software applications available today,” said Joan Hirsch , vice president of Product Design Solutions, Siemens PLM Software. “Remcom is now among the first electromagnetic simulation software suppliers to license the D-Cubed 2D DCM product, and the latest example of the ever broadening appeal of our PLM Components family of solutions.”
Remcom has been a market leader in the field of electromagnetic simulation software for nearly 15 years, creating the first universally usable full wave EM solver to be based on the Finite Difference Time Domain (FDTD) method. In addition to its flagship product, XFdtd®, Remcom provides a suite of innovative software and services for antenna design and propagation. Remcom is committed to its customers’ unique needs, offering flexible licensing options for installations of all sizes as well as custom engineered solutions. Visit
