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.”
The following papers have been selected to receive the CST University Publication Award 2014:
Short Paper Award 2014:
• “Low Profile Cavity-Backed Four-Arm Archimedean Spiral Antenna with 8:1 Bandwidth”; Hongzhao Ray Fang, Mohammed Serhir, Ramanan Balakrishnan, Régis Guinvarc’h, Koen Mouthaan (National University of Singapore, SUPELEC, France)

CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) will preview the upcoming version of its flagship electromagnetic simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE® 2015, at European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2014, booth 109.
CST STUDIO SUITE is used by engineers and researchers working across the electromagnetic spectrum to model systems and optimize designs. Its tightly-integrated solvers cover a broad range of frequencies and geometrical scales, and are complemented by more specialized technology for applications such as PCBs, cables, thermal analysis, and charged particle devices.
As devices become more compact and more connected, the old distinctions between different fields of engineering break down. Increasingly, even a single design task can involve multiple simulation disciplines. With CST STUDIO SUITE 2015, the links between the different simulation domains have been tightened and new tools have been added to allow users to go beyond what can be done with electromagnetic field simulation alone.
CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) is demonstrating its powerful new antenna array design tool in CST STUDIO SUITE®, the Phased Array Wizard, at European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2014, booth 109.
Aerospace engineers use CST STUDIO SUITE to design and optimize antennas and arrays, to analyze their installed performance, and to calculate cosite interference between antenna systems. The upcoming release of CST STUDIO SUITE 2015 will significantly enhance its antenna design offering with the integration of the new Phased Array Wizard.
Their efficiency and flexibility mean that antenna arrays are beloved by engineers who need to design high-performance antennas with low power consumption and compact size. However, the number of elements involved and the complexity of the interactions between elements can make arrays difficult to design. The Phased Array Wizard allows users to create arrays from single elements. It complements the antenna synthesis features available in Antenna Magus for a fuller array design workflow.
CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) is showcasing its new features for radar cross-section (RCS) simulation in the upcoming version of its flagship electromagnetic simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE® 2015, at European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2014, booth 109.
Aerospace and defense companies and government agencies worldwide use CST STUDIO SUITE on mission-critical projects. Its tightly-integrated solvers cover a broad range of frequencies and scales, allowing demanding and complex electromagnetic environments to be simulated during the development phase of new technologies.
RCS is an important consideration when designing new equipment, and is something that CST has long supported. The 2015 release builds on the previous RCS capabilities of CST STUDIO SUITE by adding the ability to produce RCS maps – plots of RCS phase or amplitude against frequency and scan angle – with the shooting and bouncing ray (SBR) asymptotic solver. RCS maps give engineers a more detailed view of the cross-section of a platform, and can be used to help identify potential scatterers.
Rome, Italy, October 6, 2014, Computer Simulation Technology (CST) and Microwave Vision Group (MVG) will present the innovative link between numerical simulation and antenna measurements at European Microwave Week 2014 in Rome.
Lucia Scialacqua, MVG expert on advanced antenna measurement post-processing, will present at the Computer Simulation Technology (CST) booth, #109, during European Microwave Week, where she will be discussing how to use the software tool Insight to overcome the problems faced when using Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) solvers in the evaluation and optimisation of antenna placement on large complex platforms.
Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces the addition of Filter Designer 2D to CST STUDIO SUITE®, allowing the synthesis, electromagnetic simulation, optimization and multiphysics analysis of filters in one single environment.
Planar filters are widely used by engineers developing low-cost or compact printed electronics for applications such as networking, communication and signal processing. For these filters, the design process typically has two stages. The first step is selecting an appropriate filter topology from a synthesis tool or textbook and calculating the filter coefficients that match the specification. The second step is analyzing and fine-tuning the filter through simulation or prototyping to ensure that it operates correctly when installed.
Built on Nuhertz Technologies’ well-reputed and mature technology, Filter Designer 2D’s integration into CST STUDIO SUITE means the full workflow can now be carried out with a single tool.
Computer Simulation Technology (CST) gibt die Erweiterung der CST STUDIO SUITE® um Filter Designer 2D bekannt, wodurch die Synthese, elektromagnetische Simulation, Optimierung und multiphysikalische Analyse von Filtern in einer einzigen Umgebung möglich wird.
Planare Filter werden häufig von Ingenieuren verwendet, die kostengünstige oder kompakte gedruckte Elektronikteile für Anwendungen in der Netzwerktechnik, Kommunikation und Signalverarbeitung entwickeln. Der Entwicklungsprozess für diese Filter besteht normalerweise aus zwei Schritten. Im ersten Schritt geht es darum, die passende Filterstruktur mit einem Synthesetool oder aus entsprechender Fachliteratur auszuwählen und die Filterkoeffizienten zu berechnen, die zur jeweiligen Spezifikation passen. Der zweite Schritt besteht darin, den Filter durch Simulation oder durch den Bau eines Prototyps zu analysieren und zu perfektionieren, damit er korrekt funktioniert, wenn er eingebaut ist.
