January 20, 2002 by Jeff Shepard

Ansoft Corp. (Pittsburgh) announced its 64-bit technology solution compatible with Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Solaris operating environment (OE), which is designed to meet customer demand for microwave and antenna systems and ultra-high-speed packaging and chip designs, Ansoft's 64-bit solution for the Solaris OE will provide simulation-software users with the ability to run extremely large models on high-performance systems such as the Sun Blade 1000 workstation and the Sun Fire V880 server.

"Today's increasingly complex studies require the immense floating point power and the high performance of Ansoft's 64-bit solver technology on the Sun platform," said Peter Denyer, group manager of design and analysis market development at Sun Microsystems. "Ansoft's products, running on the scalable and powerful Sun platform, will help engineers reduce time-to-market for high-frequency devices."
