New developments of the Electromagnetic Data Exchange
The development of the Electromagnetic Data Exchange (EDX) standard was initiated as a joint effort in the Antenna Centre of Excellence (ACE) and the European Antenna Modelling Library (EAML) project, respectively funded under EU-FP6 and ESA-TRP budgets. Since the end of ACE the development continues in the Working Group on Software of the European Association on Antennas and Propagation (EurAAP) in close cooperation with the EAML partners.
The key issues in the recent developments have been a vastly improved interface to MATLAB and so-called companion tools which enable easy browsing of EDX files and graphical visualization of the contents of such files. Further, new methods for automatic formal data set validation have been studied and new validation tools have been implemented. The future role of the EDX as an important component for data exchange is also discussed showing its potential for improved EM modelling.
