The electromagnetic simulation software CST STUDIO SUITE® is the culmination of many years of research and development into the most accurate and efficient computational solutions for electromagnetic designs.
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 DESIGN STUDIO®(CST DS) is a powerful and easy-to-use schematic design tool that radically speeds up the analysis, synthesis and optimisation of complex structures and electromagnetic systems.
CST EM STUDIO® (CST EMS) is dedicated to the simulation of static and low frequency devices. Embedded in the same CST user interface, CST EMS features a variety of solver module to tackle electrostatics, magnetostatics, current flow and low frequency problems, and can be coupled to other CST STUDIO SUITE® modules for charged particle and multiphysics simulations.
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 MICROWAVE STUDIO®(CST® MWS®) is a specialist tool for the 3D EM simulation of high frequency components. CST MWS' unparalleled performance is making it first choice in technology leading R&D departments.
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 the EDA design flow by providing powerful import filters for popular layout tools from Cadence, Zuken, and Altium. Prior to modeling and simulation, the imported layout is automatically checked in order to correct potential geometric errors.
CST PARTICLE STUDIO® (CST® PS) is a specialist tool for the fast and accurate analysis of charged particle dynamics in 3D electromagnetic fields. Powerful and versatile, it is suitable for tasks ranging from designing magnetrons and tuning electron tubes to modeling particle sources and accelerator components.
Simulation performance is heavily dependent on the number of unknowns that the solver needs to calculate. No matter how well chosen the solver settings are to the problems at hand, there will always be situations where a straightforward simulation will need very high computational resources, a very long solver time, or even fail altogether.
CST EMC STUDIO® (CST EMCS) is a specialized software package for analyzing electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and electromagnetic interference (EMI) using 3D electromagnetic field simulation. The solvers and tools in CST EMCS have been selected to be especially relevant to EMC engineers, and are drawn from the mature technology.
CST BOARDCHECK is an EMC, SI and PI rule checking program that reads popular board files from Cadence, Mentor Graphics, and Zuken as well as ODB++ (e.g. Altium) files and 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 modelling process. It increases efficiency by helping the engineer to make a more informed choice of antenna element, providing a good starting design.
IdEM is a user friendly tool for the generation of macromodels of linear lumped multi-port structures (e.g., via fields, connectors, packages, discontinuities, etc.), known from their input-output port responses. The raw characterization of the structure can come from measurement or simulation, either in frequency domain or in time domain.
FEST3D is a software tool capable of analysing complex passive microwave components based on waveguide technology (including multiplexers, couplers and filters) in very short computational times with high accuracy. This suite offers all the capabilities needed for the design of passive components such as optimization and tolerance analysis. Moreover, FEST3D advanced synthesis tools allow designing bandpass, dual-mode and lowpass filters from user specifications.
SPARK3D is a unique simulation tool for determining the RF breakdown power level in a wide variety of passive devices, including those based on cavities, waveguides, microstrip and antennas. Field results from CST STUDIO SUITE® simulations can be imported directly into SPARK3D to analyse vacuum breakdown (multipactor) and gas discharge. From this, SPARK3D calculates the maximum power that the device can handle without causing discharge effects.
Easy-to-use matching circuit optimization and antenna analysis software
Optenni Lab is a professional software tool with innovative analysis features to increase the productivity of engineers requiring matching circuits. It can, e.g., speed up the antenna design process and provide antennas with optimal total performance. Optenni Lab offers fast fully-automatic matching circuit optimization tools, including automatic generation of multiple optimal topologies, estimation of the obtainable bandwidth of antennas and calculation of the worst-case isolation in multi-antenna systems.
The ability to visualize electromagnetic fields intuitively in 3D and also the possibility to demonstrate in a straightforward way the effect of parameter changes are obvious benefits in teaching. To support learning, teaching and research at academic institutions, CST offers four types of licenses, namely the free CST STUDIO SUITE®Student Edition, a Classroom license, an Educational license and an Extended license.
The CST STUDIO SUITE® Student Edition has been developed with the aim of introducing you to the world of electromagnetic simulation, making Maxwell’s equations easier to understand than ever.
Below you will find several examples which were selected from some commonly used textbooks. Each example contains a short description of the theory, detailed information on how to construct the model, a video showing how to construct the model, and the fully constructed model ready for you to download.
In acknowledgement of the importance of university research and the impact of groundbreaking publications on the reputation of both author and tool used for the research, CST announces the endowment of a University Publication Award.
