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.

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.

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.

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.
