EMAP5 is a numerical software package designed to model electromagnetic problems. It employs the finite element method (FEM) to analyze three-dimensional volumes, and the method of moments (MOM) to analyze the current distribution on the surface of these volumes. The two methods are coupled through the fields on the dielectric surface. This paper describes the formulation of the EMAP5 code and demonstrates how it can be used to analyze simple printed circuit board configurations
