SODA is a Structural Optimization, Design and Analysis computer program for use by structural engineers. The program has been developed over many years by a research group in the Civil Engineering Department of the University of Waterloo, Canada, in conjunction with a broad base of practising engineers throughout North America to ensure that the program meets the practical needs of the structural engineering community.


Sonnet's suites of high-frequency electromagnetic (EM) Software are aimed at today's demanding design challenges involving predominantly planar (3D planar) circuits and antennas. Predominantly planar circuits include microstrip, stripline, coplanar waveguide, PCB (single and multiple layers) and combinations with vias, vertical metal sheets (z-directed strips), and any number of layers of metal traces embedded in stratified dielectric material.

The ECE Shop manages the installation of this program.
