Q3D Extractor provides 2-D and 3-D parasitic extraction for engineers designing electronic packaging and power electronic equipment. Q3D Extractor provides partial inductance and resistance extractions that help design DC-DC power converters, along with unit cell capacitance extractions for touchscreen devices.

To accelerate model creation, it can also import files from well-known MCAD and ECAD providers such as Altium, Autodesk, Cadence, Dassault, Mentor Graphics, PTC and Zuken.

More About Q3D Extractor

  • A key benefit of ANSYS Q3D Extractor software is its automatic adaptive meshing techniques. ANSYS Q3D Extractor contains an advanced quasi-static 3-D electromagnetic field solver based on the method of moments (MoM) and accelerated by the fast multipole method (FMM).

Features of Q3D Extractor

Q3D Extractor are of interest where Simplorer serves as the system platform for circuit analysis. Maxwell and Q3D Extractor are used to model a given sub- system such as the EMI filter or the PCB where the results are exported and inserted into Simplorer as a state-space model or an equivalent circuit.

Enables you to accurately extract 3-D parasitics from PCBs, IC packages, MCMs, cables and converters.

Extracts signal and power ground parasitics for inclusion in IBIS models.

Optimizes inverter/converter architectures and minimizes bus inductance, overvoltage situations and short-circuit currents.

Provides answers with user-specified accuracy with minimal setup effort or manual intervention with the mesh process.

Automatically creates models for circuit simulation.

Extracts and optimizes RLC parasitics for touchscreen design.
