June 7, 2011, Baltimore, MD, Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces the introduction of a finite element based Eigenmode solver in CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® version 2011 SP3, at IMS 2011 booth #1423.

The computation of Eigenmodes is essential for the accurate design of resonant structures, such as cavities, filters or particle accelerators. Typical results of these simulations are resonance frequencies and Q-values. An additional application area of Eigenmode solvers is the design of periodic devices, such as slow-wave structures (e.g. travelling wave tubes) and metamaterials, where phase-diagrams can be derived from unit cells.

June 7, 2011, Baltimore, MD, Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces the release of new high performance computing options for CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® version 2011 SP3, at IMS 2011 booth #1423.

A well known trend in microwave & RF device design is the increase in device complexity, with an accompanying decrease of time allowance for the R&D process. Electromagnetic simulation can reduce the number of prototyping cycles, but the increase in simulation model size still represents a special challenge. This is addressed by high performance computing (HPC) techniques

1 April 2011: Verbundprojekt unter Führung von Bosch gestartet

Gefördert vom Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) entwickeln das Technologieunternehmen Bosch, die Software-Unternehmen CST – Computer Simulation Technology AG und Adapted Solutions sowie die TU Berlin eine rechnergestützte Entwicklungsumgebung zum elektrisch-thermischen Co-Design leistungselektronischer Komponenten. Innerhalb des Verbundprojekts „SOlar – Simulations- und Optimierungsmethodik für leistungselektronische Systemauslegung – effizient, robust und kompakt“ arbeiten die Partner an einer hochinnovativen Software-Lösung, mit deren Hilfe energieeffiziente leistungselektronische Systeme ausgelegt und ihre Eigenschaften simuliert werden können. So sollen elektrische und thermische Probleme solcher Schaltungen in Zukunft bereits am Computer erkannt werden, was zu einer beschleunigten Entwicklung und damit zu deutlichen Kosteneinsparungen im hoch- dynamischen Markt für effiziente Leistungselektronik-Produkte führt. Zur Demonstration soll mit der entwickelten Methodik ein kompakter, hocheffizienter Solarwechselrichter ausgelegt und aufgebaut werden.

July 26, 2010, Fort Lauderdale, FL, CST - Computer Simulation Technology (CST), a world leader in the computer simulation of radiated emissions and susceptibility, announces major workflow improvements for EMC simulation at IEEE EMC 2010. CST’s complete technology for 3D EM simulation will be further enhanced by tighter integration of CST CABLE STUDIO™ (CST CS) and the CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® (CST MWS) TLM solver in CST STUDIO SUITE™ 2011.

Users of CST STUDIO SUITE 2011, interested in the analysis of radiated emissions and susceptibility, will benefit from a single unified environment for all EMC related modeling tasks, including greatly simplified model set up and simulation. The CST MWS TLM solver (Microstripes) and CST CS provide powerful features for “real world” EMC analysis including coupled simulations which enable large system analysis and installed performance studies. In pre-processing, the definition of compact equivalent aperture models and cable harnesses will be performed in CST’s familiar design environment. Coupling between the electromagnetic field and cable solvers is further enhanced to enable direct transient simulation of susceptibility problems in systems containing complex cable bundles, including shielded twisted pair circuits.

CST presents substantial improvements to the CST MICROWAVE STUDIO (CST MWS) Asymptotic Solver at MTT-S IMS 2010.

Engineers simulating electrically large structures, either for radar cross section analysis or for antenna placement studies, benefitted from the introduction of an asymptotic solver in CST MICROWAVE STUDIO version 2010. This solver is based on the shooting bouncing ray method. With the latest CST STUDIO SUITE 2010 service pack, significant functional enhancements have been made available to our customers.

The asymptotic solver can now use farfields as excitation sources. These farfields can be computed by other CST MWS solvers including the transient and frequency domain solvers. This makes the calculation of an installed antenna´s farfield possible, even for an electrically very large structure such as a ship. Importing more than one farfield enables the computation of the coupling between several antennas, or of the total farfield including all antennas.

CST announces the implementation of an efficient sensitivity analysis for the transient solver of CST MICROWAVE STUDIO 2011. The sensitivities can be used in the transient as well as the frequency domain solver for yield analysis and fast optimization.

Design engineers choose the CST MICROWAVE STUDIO (CST MWS) transient solver for a large variety of microwave & RF applications because of its performance and accuracy. The latest addition to this solver will help them to speed up parameter studies and optimization of RF-components significantly.

One of the key advantages of the CST MWS transient solver is the efficient computation of broadband s-parameters and field results in one single simulation run. The newly implemented sensitivity analysis will be capable of evaluating the s-parameter dependencies on various model parameters on the basis of one simulation. This means that all further evaluations for different model parameter sets can be derived without restarting the full-wave simulation, thus offering users a considerable speed-up. Yield analysis for complex three dimensional models is becoming available at virtually no additional computational cost.
 

Tuesday, 25 May 2010
CST announces curved elements and domain decomposition will be available in the CST MICROWAVE STUDIO frequency domain solver in the next major release at MTT-S IMS 2010.

Engineers designing narrowband or high Q structures, working with the CST MICROWAVE STUDIO (CST MWS) frequency domain solver offers some natural advantages. Additionally, it is often used to crosscheck results with the transient solver for even greater confidence. The introduction of “True Geometry Adaptation” in CST MWS version 2009 represented a major milestone for the derivation of reliable and accurate results for RF FEM solvers.

With version 2011, the CST MWS frequency domain solver will feature curved elements of arbitrary order. In comparison to using simpler curvilinear elements (first order curved elements), which often suffer from the creation of inaccuracies in the mesh representation, the implementation of higher order curved elements means that the approximation of arbitrary surfaces is much smoother.

Cadence and CST present webcast demonstrating advances resulting from technical cooperation.

May 20th, 2010, Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces closer cooperation and webcast with Cadence Design Systems, Inc.

To address increasing customer demand for integrated layout and 3D full wave analysis, CST and Cadence are collaborating to provide a best in class solution. A webcast on June 23 will demonstrate the integration.

As multiband devices shrink and frequencies increase, layout of packages, system in packages (SiP) and PCBs is becoming increasingly critical to maintain good signal and power integrity and to meet radiated emission requirements. Rule checkers can help to some extent, but electromagnetic field simulators are required to see the full picture, both in pre layout analysis and post-layout verification. Most layout tools have 2D simulators available that can offer good insights, but for high accuracy and to address layouts with non-planar elements such as wirebonds, a full 3D simulator is mandatory.
