Convergentia uses electromagnetic simulation with CST Studio Suite to replace prototype builds.
Antennas require a proper ground plane in order to function correctly. This can be hard to achieve in small devices with several separate metal parts and may result in high-loss resonances which are very difficult to track. It may take weeks to find the cause of these problems, and a new prototyping round would be needed in order to fix the problem.

Simulation with CST Studio Suite, a SIMULIA simulation tool, made it possible for designs to be examined without the cost of constructing a prototype, and field visualization allows resonant components to be identified by eye
Convergentia were able to implement an effective virtual prototyping workflow that reduced the number of prototype rounds, together with the device development time.
