A software architecture for the design of electromagnetic simulators is presented. It is suggested that the system should be structured in layers, due to the benefits of separating responsibilities, facilitating the software adaptation to consider different environments. Using this architecture, new features can be easily added to the software at low cost. An application using the proposed architecture was developed with the Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD) Method, but it allows different numerical methods to be implemented.
