A parallel FDTD algorithm has been realized based on 1-D domain decomposition. Data communication among different adjacent processors is manipulated by a self-defined C++ class ( MPI_FDTD) in which portable functions of the message passing interface (MPI) library are used. The details of the implementation are discussed. EMC applications of the code such as cross talk of traces, cavity, vias, as well as an IC package are provided to demonstrate the parallel efficiency.
