By Jonathan Oakley, VP Sales & Marketing CST of America
During a week of surprisingly perfect weather in Seattle, CST of America were at a particularly busy show – IMS 2013, the leading international symposium for microwave theory and practice. High traffic through the booth, a full presentation schedule and a very active demo station kept our staff occupied over the 3 exhibition days as we showcased electromagnetic (EM) simulation software tool, CST STUDIO SUITE®.
It was noticeable during the Q&A after our presentations and general booth conversations that engineers and their managers want more from their software tools than ever. So what are they looking out for? What I noticed is that companies are demanding more integrated software tools that fit seamlessly into existing workflows as well as being easy to use. However, it was clear that they needed EM simulation software that is both fast and accurate, without losing its depth of capability. What’s more is that the sheer range of applications mentioned by people visiting the booth was huge, ranging from antenna placement on large mining vehicles to exotic materials on aircrafts.
We were pleased to have all visitors drop by to say hello at our booth. If you want to have a look at what we were up to, check out our IMS 2013 Pinterest board for snapshots from the show or watch some of our interviews by Microwave Journal, RF Globalnet, and Engineering TV.
