Boston, MA., June 9th 2009, Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces new flexibility for customers interested in simulation acceleration at IEEE MTT-S IMS, booth # 2013.
Design engineers and researchers working in all areas of microwave and RF device R&D are constantly striving to shorten simulation times and therefore development cycles. To meet these demands, CST is researching new technologies to improve simulation performance: both methodological and the latest hardware technology. Today CST offers a multitude of simulation acceleration options such as multi CPU processing, GPU processing, cluster computing, and distributed computing to satisfy customer requirements. In order to secure customer investments as well as to facilitate the choice of the most effective acceleration solution for a given simulation model, CST is now introducing a token scheme which enables the versatile access to as well as the combination of different simulation acceleration options.
CST announces that the CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® frequency domain solver will feature 3rd order and mixed elements with the 2010 release.
Design engineers and researchers working on electrically small or resonant structures value the frequency domain solver of CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® as a well integrated alternative to the market leading time domain solver, and for cross verification purposes. The range of possible applications and users has now been enlarged.
With the introduction of the True Geometry Adaptation, a technique which improves the geometrical representation of a structure during the mesh adaptation process, in version 2009, CST reinforced its claim to technological leadership through a distinct and significant development. This technique overcomes an inherent accuracy problem of traditional FEM codes which refine the mesh but not the segmented geometry.
CST announces the introduction of a new CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® solver module for electrically large structures.
Engineers working on antenna placement, radar cross section simulation or other electrically large problems will benefit from CST’s newest addition to the CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® (CST MWS) solver family. The new CST MWS asymptotic solver targets a range of simulation model sizes beyond the reach of even the successful integral equation solver, i.e. much larger than 100 wavelengths.
Magus (Pty) Ltd., CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST), EM Software & Systems-S.A. (Pty) Ltd. today announce the release of a new software product to accelerate the antenna design and modelling process.
Antenna Magus – the first antenna design tool of its kind – has a huge database of antennas that can be explored to find, design and export models of designed antennas to CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® and FEKO. It is expected that Antenna Magus will become an invaluable aid to antenna design engineers, to EMC engineers requiring antenna models and to system integrators who require antenna models for antenna placement studies.
Darmstadt, Germany April 16th 2009, CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST), today announces that SimLab Software GmbH has become a 100% subsidiary company of CST AG. The acquisition of all outstanding shares followed the successful partnership and participation agreement signed in June 2007.
Design engineers interested in PCB and cable harness simulation will profit from this acquisition through full exploitation of synergies in product development and support. This step will accelerate the incorporation of SimLab’s cutting edge technology into CST’s design environment.
CST announces the integration of cable, PCB, and EMC/EMI simulation in CST STUDIO SUITE™ 2009 at DesignCon, booth # 315.
Design engineers and researchers working on the signal integrity of complex systems containing cables, PCBs, and fully three-dimensional passive components, will benefit from the latest release of CST STUDIO SUITE™. Highly specialized tools such as CST PCB STUDIO™ (CST PCBS) and CST CABLE STUDIO™ (CST CS) are used to study signal propagation on PCBs and cable harnesses, with high efficiency. These tools are part of CST DESIGN ENVIRONMENT™, which also provides access to the market leading time domain solver CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® (CST MWS), for the optimization of full 3D components with respect to signal integrity. The entire system can then be synthesized in CST DESIGN STUDIO™ (CST DS) which is also used to access and modify the individual components of the system.
CST announces keynote speaker for the European user group meeting, 16-18 March 2009.
Piermario Besso, Head of Antenna and Infrastructure Section, ESA-ESOC will be presenting "EM simulation challenges in the ESA space program".
Additionally, on Wednesday, 18th March, at the close of UGM, a tour of the ESA European Space Operations Centre (ESOC) will be offered (pre-registration required).

CST's technical article "Electromagnetic Simulation Of Mobile Phone Antenna Performance" was (based on newsletter reader response) the #1 most popular download featured in an RF Globalnet newsletter in 2008.
Electromagnetic Simulation Of Mobile Phone Antenna Performance
By Omid Sotoudeh, Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications and Tilmann Wittig, CST GmbH
The telecommunications sector is making great advances aimed at delivering an even stream of high-tech devices, covering the significant consumer demands in this sector. Electromagnetic (EM) simulation is becoming an increasingly important tool in the design flow, not only at the antenna level but also at the phone and environmental levels. This article compares simulated results with measurements for several steps in the phone design chain.

December 19th, 2008 Computer Simulation Technology (CST), Darmstadt, announces winners of
CST University Publication Award 2008.
The CST University Publication Award is an annual grant to university institutes and researchers for their work in the application of 3D EM field simulation. Now in this its fifth year, the quality of the publications was outstanding. Prerequisites for participation are that the papers are authored or co-authored by academic researchers, published either in scientific journals or conference proceedings, and the numerical results are entirely or in part obtained through simulation using CST software products.
