XFdtd is compliant with and passes all tests outlined in the international Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) standards determined by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The standard, including full problem descriptions, is detailed in the IEC/IEEE standard .
The validation tests described in the standard are summarized in the downloadable documents, presented with references to the corresponding IEC standard section, and followed by XF's results.
Each release of XF is verified against the standard and the associated documentation is available for download.
