Cobham Technical Services produces the world’s most advanced software for modeling and analyzing electromagnetic equipment and effects. Its virtual prototyping tools speed the design process – helping to achieve a user’s goal, whether that is lowest cost, optimum performance, ease of manufacture, or the best combination.
Its portfolio includes the first comprehensive simulation solution for designing magnetron sputter coaters. The new software tool provides precision simulation of the complete sputtering process, offering a highly practical means of improving sputter target utilization, plasma formation and thin film deposition. The new Magnetron Sputter version of Opera provides a complete suite of three-dimensional (3D) tools for the finite element modeling, simulation, analysis and optimization of magnetron sputtering equipment. This development draws on Cobham’s two decades of simulation expertise and validation in the field of charged particle beams.
