Stellenbosch, South Africa & Darmstadt, Germany, April 14th, 2010, MAGUS (Pty) Ltd, CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST), EMSS - EM Software & Systems-S.A. (Pty) Ltd announce the release of the second major version of Antenna Magus.
The number of antenna topologies in the Antenna Magus database has almost doubled since the release of version 1.0. There are now 113 popular antennas available to be designed for a wide variety of objective values. Some of the more popular additions are the bi-quad, the axial choke horn, the travelling wave waveguide slot array, various patch arrays, the Vivaldi and the probe fed cheese.
Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces shipping of CST STUDIO SUITE™ version 2010 has commenced.
Engineers and researchers working with electromagnetic problems will benefit from CST’s latest software release, CST STUDIO SUITE version 2010 and its multitude of powerful new solver options, features and functionality. The extended range of solvers included in this release continues CST’s complete technology tradition. This offers different solution options within one design environment thus enabling a wide range of applications to be analyzed without leaving the familiar, easy-to-use CST interface.
CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® (CST MWS) now incorporates an asymptotic solver. This solver is based on the Shooting Bouncing Ray method, an extension to physical optics, and is capable of tackling simulations with an electric size of many thousands of wavelengths such as radar cross section analysis.
CST announces the introduction of CST MPHYSICS STUDIO™, a new product in CST STUDIO SUITE 2010, at EuMW, booth # 527.
In many branches of microwaves and RF engineering, the analysis required is not confined to the electromagnetic problem, particularly when dealing with high power applications. Both the temperature rise and resulting stress have to be considered in the design process since these may have major implications for the device’s performance.
The introduction of CST MPHYSICS STUDIO™ facilitates an integrated workflow in which the electromagnetic simulation calculated by CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® is just the starting point. The dielectric or conductive losses can be used for thermal analysis, which in turn is one of the possible sources of mechanical stress. The resulting deformation can then be subjected to sensitivity analysis.
The design of lightning protection systems (LPS) is a challenging task, particularly for a mobile Radar system. A detailed study of the current path resulting from a lightning strike through an external lightning protection system, and the induced currents in the system to be protected, enable a reliable design of all relevant parts.
Ing. Americo Dominicis of Selex-SI in collaboration with Prof. A.Orlandi of University of L’Aquila investigated the impact of a lightning strike on a mobile 3D radar using CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® (CST MWS).
San Francisco, July 27th 2009, Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces the introduction of a new CST PCB STUDIO® solver module for Power Integrity analysis at DAC, booth #3155.
Engineers working on the design of power delivery networks will benefit from CST’s latest addition to CST STUDIO SUITE™. The new CST PCB STUDIO™ Power Integrity solver, based on a special 3D FEM approach, helps calculate accurate impedance profiles within a full 3D simulation, but in a fraction of the time required by traditional 3D solvers.
