New Software: FORTRAN Flowchart Generator Now Supports f90
Posted Wed December 08, 2004 @01:33PM
Print version Email story Tweet story
News OmegaChart converts a FORTRAN source code (f77 & f90, fixed or free form) to their FlowChart equivalence. The generated flowchart is then transmitted as an Excel file.

OmegaChart 2.0 is useful for untangling the behind-the-scenes programming logic in a messy spaghetti code and therefore generate visual documentation of the execution route. While other analysis tools only provide "assembly level" info such as calling trees or variables attributes, OmegaChart provides detailed "module level" logic such as loops, if-elseif-endif constructs and select-case constructs.

With OmegaChart, you can effortlessly minimize the use of GOTO's and therefore "modernize" your code.

Whether you are a programmer, a program analyst or a software maintainance personnel, OmegaChart is a "MUST HAVE" tool to ease your life. It can relieve you of hundreds or even thousands hours of headache.

Version 2.0 of OmegaChart adds support for the FORTRAN-90 language standard.

News Fluent Inc. has announced the release of Icemax 2.0, the second major release of its Integrated Circuit (IC) electrical modeling software package, with a range of new capabilities and enhancements. Icemax is powered by advanced geometry processing engines and the flagship FLUENT finite volume 3-D flow field solver, facilitating quick and accurate parasitic RLC extraction of complex IC package layouts.

Icemax 2.0 addresses the following general categories of significant advances, all based on suggestions and requests of current Icemax users:

  • Detailed analysis of multiport nets, particularly for multi-die system-in-package designs and internal ground/power nets
  • Mesher and solver optimization to facilitate full package extraction of high pin-count packages, including multilayer flip chip designs
  • Parametric solution capability to enable users to perform a frequency sweep and detailed design optimization
In addition, the Icemax 2.0 solver is being rolled out on a Linux platform enabling users to take advantage of cluster computing for larger designs.

Print version Email story Tweet story
News Fluent Inc., world leader in computational fluid dynamics (CFD) software, has announced that multiple Formula One motor racing World Drivers' and World Constructors’ Champions, Ferrari Spa, has extended its relationship with the company to recognize it as its Strategic CFD Provider. The new relationship was cemented in early September in Maranello, Italy, when Jean Todt, General Manager of Ferrari Spa, signed a new contract with Fluent for 3 years. The existing relationship between Ferrari’s Aerodynamics Department and Fluent Italia stretches back to 1996 when Fluent supplied them with software and services for CFD analysis of racing cars.

Commenting on the new agreement, Mario Almondo, Head of the Industrial Department of the Scuderia, said “We consider the use of CFD simulation and the services offered by Fluent as an important element in our racing success. That is why we are happy to name the company our Strategic CFD Provider”.
