Tampa, Florida, June 3, 2014 – Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces new features to automate workflows for field source coupling and multiphysics simulation using its System Assembly and Modeling (SAM) framework at MTT-S IMS, booth #1423 .
Since 2012, CST has offered the ability to link together multiple simulation and post-processing tasks using the SAM framework in its EM simulation software, CST STUDIO SUITE. The 2014 release of CST STUDIO SUITE builds on this with features that automate the creation of SAM projects for common design tasks, such as antenna placement, emissions analysis and thermal detuning.
Multiphysics workflows, which combine full-wave EM simulation with thermal simulation, can now be created using the wizard from the schematic view in CST STUDIO SUITE. This means that all the solvers are set up and connected, and the entire simulation started with a single click. For simulations with temperature dependent materials, SAM allows simulations to be iterated until convergence is achieved. Mechanical simulations can be easily added to the workflow, allowing expansion and detuning effects to be calculated. All solvers are integrated in the same parametric 3D modelling GUI, making parameter studies and optimisation runs including EM-thermal couplings possible.
Darmstadt, Germany, May 28, 2014 – Computer Simulation Technology (CST), silver sponsors of the IEEE MTT International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in Tampa, FL on June 1-6 2014 will be showcasing CST STUDIO SUITE® at booth #1423 and presenting a series of application-based talks.
The CST Booth Presentations will provide a practical overview of CST STUDIO SUITE through demo workflows, highlighting interoperability and simulation aspects within CST STUDIO SUITE and partner simulation tools. Each session is scheduled to run for approximately 15 minutes, with an opportunity for discussion at the end.
Expert CST engineers will also be at the booth from June 3-5 during exhibition hours to talk to attendees about the various high frequency applications of CST STUDIO SUITE and to answer any technical questions.
New interface between CST STUDIO SUITE and SOLIDWORKS Introduced.
Darmstadt, Germany, May 8, 2014 – Computer Simulation Technology (CST), has joined the SOLIDWORKS Partner Program as an official Solution Partner. In conjunction with the new partnership comes the ability of CST’s flagship EM simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE® 2014 to import models from SOLIDWORKS directly. Direct SOLIDWORKS import together with CST’s new CAD import version control is a powerful combination for rapid design and optimization.
SOLIDWORKS, from Dassault Systèmes, is a 3D CAD and project management software, used by millions of engineers worldwide. CST STUDIO SUITE is a package of cutting-edge electromagnetic simulation tools for modeling and optimizing designs across a wide range of application areas. Using the new SOLIDWORKS import feature introduced in CST STUDIO SUITE 2014, the two products can be combined in one straightforward workflow to help engineers bring their ideas to fruition faster and more effectively.

The new CST branch office has been established to enhance the company’s operations in Poland and will focus on offering a local, personalized approach to addressing the EM simulation needs of industry and academia. It will be the hub for sales efforts in the Baltic region and provide expert technical support to existing users.
December 19th, 2013 – Computer Simulation Technology (CST), Darmstadt, announces winners of the CST University Publication Award 2013, an annual grant to university institutes and researchers for published papers related to 3D electromagnetic field simulation applications.
The CST University Publication Award acknowledges the importance of work from university researchers and academics by granting winners extensions and upgrades to their CST STUDIO SUITE® installations. 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the Award, showcasing support in further research and innovation within universities.
Nuremberg, Germany, October 8, 2013, CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) will be previewing the latest version of its flagship electromagnetic simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE® 2014, at European Microwave Week 2013, booth #103.
CST STUDIO SUITE is used by engineers and researchers working across the electromagnetic spectrum to model systems and optimize designs. Its modules include a palette of high-frequency and low-frequency solvers suitable for a wide range of applications across different fields, complemented by more specialized technology for applications such as PCBs, cables and charged particle devices.
Darmstadt, Germany and Stellenbosch, South Africa, October 3, 2013, CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) and MAGUS (Pty) Ltd (MAGUS) are developing new tools for linear antenna arrays including feed networks, to launch with the newest version of Magus’ flagship product Antenna Magus. These features will be previewed at European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2013, booth #103.
Engineers involved with planar arrays often estimate the performance of the array from single elements, using array synthesis methods to determine the number of elements required, their spacing and the relative excitations. Although this approach provides a good starting point, it does not include a number of practical effects, such as mutual coupling, or the influence of the feed network – and indeed, the actual layout of the feed network.
Darmstadt, Germany and Espoo, Finland, October 2, 2013, CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) and Optenni Ltd (Optenni) are collaborating to provide engineers with design tools for MIMO antenna optimization. These tools for multiport matching will be demonstrated at European Microwave Week (EuMW) 2013, booth #103, and in a free webinar on October 24.
Multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) antennas are a fundamental part of many next-generation communication standards, promising high data rates and good reliability in multipath environments. Miniaturization and antenna diversity mean that designing efficient MIMO antenna systems can be difficult. For this reason, CST and Optenni are working to improve the design flow for MIMO systems and make it easier for engineers to optimize their MIMO designs.
