CST STUDIO SUITE Overview
Electromagnetic products are rapidly becoming game changers not just in the high-tech industries of electronics and communication, but also in aerospace, defense, transportation and life sciences. Examples range from individual components such as antennas, sensors and chips up to entire devices, including aircraft, smartphones and MRI. In many cases, the interaction of a device with its surroundings is crucial to its operation – for example, analyzing interference, radio coverage or human exposure requires the environment around the device to be considered in detail.
CST STUDIO SUITE is a package of tools for electromagnetic and EM-centric multiphysics simulation. The “Complete Technology” philosophy of CST means that solvers for applications across the EM spectrum are contained within a single user interface, and can be coupled in many different combinations. This gives engineers the flexibility to analyze and optimize whole systems made up of multiple components efficiently and straight-forwardly. Virtual prototyping with CST STUDIO SUITE is used by industry leaders optimize the performance of devices, to identify and mitigate potential compliance issues early in the design process, and to reduce the number of physical prototypes required and cut costs and development time.
Common subjects of analysis include the performance, efficiency and installed performance of antennas and filters, electromagnetic compatibility and interference (EMC/EMI), exposure of the human body to fields, electro-mechanical effects in motors and generators, and thermal effects in high-power devices. A single device may involve many components and require a detailed multiphysics simulation. Co-design with other SIMULIA products allows EM simulation to be integrated into the design flow and drive the development process from the earliest stages.
