Delcross and CST announce worldwide distribution agreement
Delcross and CST are pleased to announce that Delcross Technologies’ EMIT (Electromagnetic Interference Toolkit) and Savant are now available worldwide through all CST sales channels. The software will also be fully supported by CST’s skilled team of electromagnetic specialists. EMIT analyzes multi-antenna platforms and predicts cosite interference between RF systems attached to the antennas.
EMIT is able to take output data directly from CST STUDIO SUITE® and, along with other data such as parametric radio models or actual measurements, build up a complete system-level picture of potential interference problems. Once the system has been simulated, strategies for mitigating interference effects can be explored within the software.
Savant predicts the performance of antennas as installed on electrically-large platforms. Through hardware and algorithmic acceleration, Savant can rapidly simulate in-situ antenna performance on platforms spanning hundreds or thousands of wavelengths. Both near-field and far-field antenna data from CST STUDIO SUITE can be used as input to Savant, not just for further far-field and near-field simulations but also for antenna coupling simulations.
Savant contains a number of advanced physics models, including creeping wave, PTD wedge diffraction and curved surface divergence factor, along with diagnostic features, built-in antenna models and an intuitive user interface; these are just a few of the features that make Savant a powerful tool for rapidly predicting installed antenna performance.
With EMIT and Savant, CST is now able to offer a complete workflow solution for antenna design, installed performance and cosite analysis. System integrators can now investigate the complete performance of their system before any metal is cut. With real estate at a premium on complex vehicular platforms, small wireless devices and base station towers, such a workflow can allow fast feasibility studies and ensure the best possible real-world performance.
“We are delighted to extend and expand our successful technical co-operation with Delcross by offering sales and support through CST channels around the world. Together, CST and Delcross are streamlining the customer experience”, commented Dr. Bernhard Wagner, Managing Director, CST. “We look forward to providing and supporting our global customer base with complete design solutions for the analysis of installed antenna performance and complex multi-antenna systems and platforms.”
“Delcross is excited about this opportunity to work with CST to provide our customers with integrated and state-of-the-art solutions to challenging cosite interference and in-situ antenna performance problems”, said Matthew Miller, President of Delcross Technologies. “We look forward to working with CST in this endeavor.”
