Darmstadt, September 3 2015, CST® - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics Research IGD, will demonstrate how the emerging technology of immersive virtual reality can be used in the EM design workflow and integrated with its flagship electromagnetic simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE® 2015, at European Microwave Week (EuMW) on September 8 2015, booth 311.
CST STUDIO SUITE is used by engineers and researchers across a wide range of fields to model electromagnetic systems and optimize designs. In order to allow it to be used in as many design workflows as possible, CST supports its powerful electromagnetic and multiphysics solvers with import/export tools for a wide range of CAD and EDA formats, and with a visualization engine that can plot field propagation and radiation patterns in full 3D. At European Microwave Week 2015, CST will demonstrate how next generation technologies such as virtual reality will also be entering the EM design process in the near future and how these technologies can be used to supplement simulation.
Virtual reality is still thought of as a platform for games and entertainment, but also offers advantages for engineers who need to visualize complex behavior in their device. Using software developed in cooperation with Fraunhofer IGD, CST will demonstrate how immersive virtual reality can be used to explore coupling paths on a complex PCB in order to identify the sources of EMC issues such as cross talk more simply. Visitors to the CST booth can try on a pair of Oculus Rift goggles and fly through a CST STUDIO SUITE simulation of a PCB in an enclosure in order to quickly and intuitively identify couplings.
“Virtual reality offers a new way for users to visualize simulation data and investigate the behavior of their devices,” commented Dr. Martin Timm, Director Global Marketing, CST. “Being able to immerse yourself in your system and experience the fields and currents as if they were tangible quantities is not only fascinating, but gives you a new way to explore the physics of your system.”
San Francisco, CA, June 9, 2015 – Computer Simulation Technology (CST) demonstrates an innovative workflow that combines the full wave simulation and extraction capabilities of CST STUDIO SUITE® with the accuracy of Synopsys HSPICE® at booth #2827 during DAC 2015.
Engineers concerned with the design of modern electronic systems can take advantage of this new workflow. It enables the combination of an industry-standard circuit simulator, HSPICE, with the accurate full-wave extraction of 3D components and interconnects performed by CST STUDIO SUITE.
In the center of this workflow is CST DESIGN STUDIO™, the block schematic tool at the heart of CST STUDIO SUITE. In chip-package-board co-design, an engineer can model a full channel system by linking blocks together. These blocks can represent circuits, IBIS models, 3D elements such as connectors, flip-chip or BGA, and - with CST STUDIO SUITE version 2015 - arbitrary HSPICE models. All these blocks can then be simulated together as a system. The 3D electromagnetic full-wave solvers in CST STUDIO SUITE can perform the extraction of the channel and create a new, simulation-ready HSPICE netlist representing the full channel which can be passed on to HSPICE for simulation and analysis, automatically.
CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST), developer of the technology leading CST STUDIO SUITE®, and Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today jointly announced a partnership to integrate 3D electromagnetic simulation technology from CST into Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
High-tech, transportation & mobility, aerospace & defense, industrial equipment and other industries will soon have access to a best-in-class multi-physics simulation solution for the creation and design of smart objects.
The Internet of Things market is expected to reach 26 billion units by 2020 as devices, cars and buildings are developed beyond form and function to digitally interact with the physical world. However, this connectivity can lead to electromagnetic interference between devices or other unintended consequences that degrade product performance, reliability and safety.
The combination of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform with CST STUDIO SUITE technology will enable customers to create and analyze electromagnetic behavioral models that simulate device function in a wide range of frequencies. This capability enhances the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s simulation applications for solving multi-physics challenges in several areas including hybrid vehicle drivetrains and wearable electronics.
Darmstadt, Germany, March 18, 2015: CST – Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces a series of webinars to accompany the release of the 2015 version of CST STUDIO SUITE®. The webinars will demonstrate the new features and tools available and their application to the areas of microwaves, RF and optical, EDA and EMC/EMI and low frequency simulations.
Darmstadt, Germany, February 10, 2015: CST – Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces a new series of webinars showing the best way to get ahead with EM simulation. These webinars will cover both CST tools and products from CST’s partners Magus Pty. and Optenni Ltd.The webinars will benefit both existing CST customers who want to improve or update their workflows, and engineers who would like the opportunity to see how market-leading software can be employed to simplify design tasks.
CST – Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces CST EMC STUDIO, a product for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) analysis, at stand 627 during DesignCon 2015.
EMC is an important consideration in product design across a wide range of industries. CST develops electromagnetic simulation solutions that help identify potential compliance issues before the actual prototype is built, and to analyze products that fail compliance testing. Engineers can study effects such as radiated or conducted emissions in consumer electronics devices, or susceptibility to electrostatic discharge, lightning strike and high-intensity radiated fields (HIRF). With CST EMC STUDIO, CST directly addresses the unique requirements of this market.
Darmstadt, Germany, December 18, 2014 – Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) has announced the winners of the CST University Publication Award 2014, an annual event awarding university institutes and researchers for published papers related to electromagnetic simulation applications.
The CST University Publication Award recognizes the importance of work from university researchers and academics by granting winners of the award extensions and upgrades to their CST STUDIO SUITE® installations.
For papers to be considered in the award, they must meet three conditions: they must be authored or co-authored by university researchers, they must have been published either in scientific journals or conference proceedings, and the numerical results must be entirely or partly obtained through simulations using CST software.
Submissions are evaluated on a number of criteria, including originality of application and theory, clarity of presentation, and the skillful use of CST software. A special award is also given for short papers, of four pages or less, to acknowledge the importance of short conference papers in promoting practical applications of simulation.
“Universities are exploring new and exciting fields of electromagnetic research. The award helps us to discover the vast variety of important and sometimes surprising ways the software is being applied in today’s fast changing world,” said Dr. Martin Timm, CST, Director of Global Marketing. “Thank you to everyone who submitted a paper to this year’s award.”
