# Analysis and Verification

EM solvers, analysis functions, mesh configuration, utility functions

Each element in the RF PCB Toolbox™ library has a set of analysis functions. Use these functions to analyze:

All the components in PCB Components Catalog.

Printed circuit board (PCB) components designed using

`design`

function.Custom PCB components created using functions and objects in Custom Geometry and PCB Fabrication.

Use this category also to mesh the PCBs into discretized triangles and tetrahedrons for solving analysis equations. You can also compare RF PCB Toolbox simulations with fabricated PCBs, measured results, and technical articles.
