The electromagnetic (EM) simulation software CST STUDIO SUITE is used to design, analyze and optimize components and systems across the Electro-Magnetic spectrum. It has the ability to link multiple simulations with different solvers into a single work-flow with System Assembly and Modeling (SAM). In 2018, the improved Assembly Modeler offers users a more efficient way to combine multiple components into a system employing a 3D environment optimized for complex models. The EM/circuit co-simulation and the Hybrid Solver Task provides bidirectional solver coupling between the Time Domain and Integral Equation Solvers &ndash a major step forward for hybrid simulation.
For bio-EM simulations, the voxel poser tool, previously a separate product, is now integrated directly into the CST STUDIO SUITE interface, offering users direct access to the voxel poser during the modeling process. Body models using the tetrahedral mesh can now move realistically to simulate breathing, which is important in the design of medical devices.
CST STUDIO SUITE 2018 has a new alternative interface for photonic and terahertz applications areas, with direct access to optical features. It also now allows simulations to be set up using wavelength rather than frequency. It has the ability to calculate farfields on multilayer substrates, which is useful both for photonic applications and for simulating antennas printed on complex PCBs.
