A Multi-Frequency Microstrip-fed Annular-Slot Antenna

This note describes a multi frequency annular slot antenna. The design is based on the paper: “A Multi-frequency Microstrip-fed Annular Slot Antenna” by Hooman Tehrani and Kai Chang. The entire structure is defined parametrically to allow optimisation and parametric studies. The setup process in CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® takes about 10 to 15 min for an experienced user.

High Speed and High Power Connector Design

High Speed and High Power Connector Design
As data transfer rates increase and complexity grows, designing high-speed connectors is becoming increasingly challenging, especially with multiple compliance regulations to meet. A precise analysis of the connector in isolation as well as the connector and PCB interface is essential, and can be only achieved by extensive use of 3D EM simulation during the development cycle. In this webinar we will present the benefits of CST STUDIO SUITE® 2013 for the simulation of high-speed connectors. Multiple examples, including display connectors and USB 3.0 connectors will be used to demonstrate features such as online TDR and cross-probing, with the aim of identifying impedance mismatches and discontinuities. A low-speed high-power connector analysis using multidisciplinary approaches (including electrical and thermal effects) will also be presented. Read full article..

Plane Wave Interactions with a Dielectric Half-Space at 60 THz

Plane Wave Interactions with a Dielectric Half-Space at 60 THz
In this article, CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® is used to illuminate an infinite dielectric half-space with a uniform plane wave and the reflection and transmission quantities are obtained. This problem has an analytical solution which serves to validate the simulation. The same procedure is then applied to a more generalized geometry which lacks a known analytical solution.

Modeling the susceptibility of enclosures to ESD and the effect of attaching cables

Modeling the susceptibility of enclosures to ESD and the effect of attaching cables
This webcast in the series discusses recent advances in modeling ESD generators using CST STUDIO. Direct transient analysis is used to simulate the ESD test waveforms defined by the IEC 61000-4-2 standard. We demonstrate the importance of modeling the physical geometry of the generator, including the ground strap. We simulate a direct contact discharge to an enclosure and predict the resulting current paths and radiated electromagnetic fields. Finally, we investigate the effect of attaching cables to the enclosure. Read full article..
