Creates a new simulation project file. If there is an existing project file in the GUI, the old project file will not be saved.

 

Supported Product: FDTD, MODE, DEVICE

 

Syntax

Description

newproject;

Creates a new layout environment.

This function does not return any data.

 

Examples

Creates a new project with the newproject command.

newproject;

 

However, for FDTD and MODE, users can have more choices:

 

For MODE, it can have numerical variables:

 

Syntax

Description

newproject(option);

The options are

1.use default file and material database as template

2.use current file and material database as template

3.open a file browser to select and existing file as a template

The default option is 1.

 

Examples

Creates a new project with the newproject command.

newproject; 

newproject(2); # open a template using current file and material database

 

For FDTD, the variables can be either numerical, or string:

 

Syntax

Description

newproject(option);

The options can be number or string:

number

string

template

1

default

use default file and material database as template

2

RF

use default RF template

3

current

use current file and material database as template

4

existing

open a file browser to select and existing file as a template

 

The default option is 1. Since most material data in the Material Database is for optical frequencies, open a RF project will not modify the original material data in the material database.

 

Examples

Creates a new project with the newproject command.

newproject; # open a template for optical frequency simulation 

 

newproject('RF');# open a template for RF simulation 

or

newproject(2); # open a template for RF simulation
