This paper describes two recent extensions of the electromagnetics computer code FEKO. The first extension is the hybridisation of the various techniques available in FEKO with transmission line theory in order to model coupling of electromagnetic fields into shielded cables. Secondly, some improvements for the MLFMM (Multilevel Fast Multilevel Method) will be presented concerning the parallel pre-conditioning using SPAI (Sparse Approximate Inverse) and regarding the fast near-field calculations.
