Ansys Maxwell

Ansys Maxwell for Consumer Electronic Devices & Electric Machines: Widely used in motor design, Maxwell is increasingly being used by the world’s top consumer electronics companies, who are also our customers.

The advanced EM field solver addresses many design challenges in the consumer electronics market. These challenges are found in numerous applications, such as in wireless charging, PCB/ECAD magnetics, power supplies, magnetic latching, loudspeakers, and more. Permanent magnets are found in consumer electronics (i.e. tablets, phones, smartwatches, AR/VR goggles, earbuds/headsets ,etc.) where they contribute to Tx-Rx alignment, holding parts together, and sound generation. In this release, Maxwell serves this market with the following new capabilities:

  • Eddy current A-Phi solver, which facilitates the calculations of RLCG, current densities, and frequencies.
  • DC & AC Fields combination, which enhances the understanding of device’s performance and allows for a visualization of the frequency AC behavior and DC bias behavior.


Maxwell is ideally suited to address the challenges in the consumer electronics market and is an effective competitive tool against Cadence, who is not offering low frequency EM tools. Maxwell can be sold wherever HFSS is sold!

For electric machine applications, Maxwell offers a new solution technique called Continuum Air (pat.pend.), which is a modification of the transient solver, to achieve higher quality motor design. Users can obtain increased accuracy on the cogging torque and better handling of the non-constant timesteps and rotor speeds.
