To show the benefits of remote/distributed simulation we've used shape modifiers on an existing output matching network of an amplifier to tune in the performance of the device to a specified efficiency and output power.  A total of 625 unique output matching networks were simulated in AXIEM with three different sets of computational resources; the local workstation, a single remote simulation server that has higher performance than the local workstation, and six identical remote simulation servers so that the geometry sweeps can be run in parallel.  A summary of the benefits of running the simulation on the faster remote machine and distributing the simulations across multiple, faster, remote machines is below.

What is Simulating?

The output matching network is a three section stepped impedance matching network.  Shape modifiers are used to increase/decrease the length and width of the first two sections of the matching network.  A total of 625 unique EM structures were simulated to explore this design space.
