CST STUDIO SUITE 2013 is the culmination of years of research and development into finding the most accurate and efficient computational solutions for electromagnetic (EM) designs. From static to optical, and from the nanoscale to the electrically large, CST STUDIO SUITE includes tools for the design, simulation and optimization of a wide range of devices.
From static to optical and from the nanoscale to the electrically large, CST STUDIO SUITE has tools available for the design, simulation and optimization of a wide range of devices. In our 2013 release, we have integrated specialized features to accommodate the needs of engineers better.
CST MICROWAVE STUDIO (CST MWS) is a specialist tool for the 3D EM simulation of high frequency components. CST MWS' unparalleled performance makes it first choice in technology leading R&D departments. CST MWS enables the fast and accurate analysis of high frequency (HF) devices such as antennas, filters, couplers, planar and multi-layer structures and SI and EMC effects.
CST DESIGN STUDIO (CST DS) is a powerful and easy-to-use schematic design tool that radically speeds up the analysis, synthesis and optimization of complex structures and electromagnetic systems.
CST PARTICLE STUDIO (CST PS) is a specialist tool for the fast and accurate analysis of charged particle dynamics in 3D electromagnetic fields. This software tool is based on the multi-purpose 3D EM modules in CST STUDIO SUITE such as the CST EM STUDIO electro and magnetostatic solver. It is fully embedded in CST DESIGN ENVIRONMENT, thus benefitting from its intuitive modelling capabilities and powerful import interfaces.
CST MPHYSICS STUDIO (CST MPS) is a powerful and easy-to-use tool for thermal and mechanical stress analysis. Systems and devices very rarely fall neatly into just one area of physics, and multiphysics simulation is often necessary for a complete simulation of the device’s characteristics.
CST PCB STUDIO (CST PCBS) is a specialist tool for signal integrity (SI), power integrity (PI), and electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)analysis on printed circuit boards (PCB). It integrates easily into your design flow by providing powerful import filters for popular EDA tools from Cadence, Mentor Graphics, Zuken, and Altium. Prior to modeling and simulation, the imported layout is automatically checked in order to correct potential geometric errors.
CST CABLE STUDIO (CST CS) is dedicated to the three-dimensional analysis of signal integrity (SI), conducted emission (CE), radiated emission (RE), and electromagnetic susceptibility (EMS) of complex cable structures in electrically large systems. It provides powerful import filters from popular MCAD and ECAD tools for smooth integration into the industrial workflow.
CST BOARDCHECK is an EMC and SI rule checking program that reads popular board files from Cadence, Mentor Graphics, and Zuken as well as ODB++ (e.g. Altium) files. It checks the PCB design against a suite of EMC or SI rules. The kernel used by CST BOARDCHECK is the well known software tool EMSAT.
Antenna Magus is a software tool to help accelerate the antenna design and modeling process. It increases efficiency by helping the engineer to make a more informed choice of antenna element, providing a good starting design. Validated antenna models can be exported to CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® from a huge antenna database which means that the engineer can get to the customization phase of an antenna design quickly and reliably.
