In CST DESIGN STUDIO™ (CST DS) different component types, named simulation blocks, can be combined to assemble a system. Simulation blocks may contain analytic, simulated or measured results, and can be linked together to build complex circuits. A CST DS schematic can be reused with the CST DESIGN STUDIO™ Block, which represents a placeholder for a subsystem and therefore support hierarchical designs.
The following types of simulation blocks are available:
Figure 1:This CST DS schematic contains three 3D CST MWS models, two spice circuits and several CST DS library elements (analytic microstrips and circuit elements).
