CST will be hosting a live webinar on March 23rd,2017 detailing the new features of CST STUDIO SUITE® 2017. Register today to see these tools in action.
The latest version of CST STUDIO SUITE® 2017 is now shipping. Our flagship software offers a range of general purpose and specialized solvers for electromagnetic and Multiphysics problems in our user-friendly interface. CST STUDIO SUITE is used by engineers, designers, and researchers in a wide range of industries. In the most recent edition, many exciting new features help simulate phenomena that appear when distinct components are combined into systems.
Filter Designer 3D (FD3D) is a design and synthesis tool for cross- coupled cavity filters. With FD3D, filter designers can design for arbitrary filter response with the easy placement of transmission zeros and a wide range of coupling resonator topologies available to realize the corresponding filter response. FD3D can also extract the coupling matrix which helps to analyze and tune a device, and is the first commercial product to include diplexer filter synthesis. When combined with CST's unique moving mesh technology and the advanced trust region framework optimizer, FD3D allows the user to design complex high order and multimode cavity filters with unprecedented precision.
The introduction of antenna to antenna couple for the asymptotic solver offers an efficient way to simulate multiple antennas on very large platforms such as ships and aircraft. This feature is especially useful for system integrators because data from a wide variety sources can be brought together in a single system-level simulation. Combined with the new nearfield monitor, users can now identify and visualize the coupling paths between antennas, and the new Interference Task can identify potential EMC issues caused by co-site interference.
Antenna array design has also been improved: CST STUDIO SUITE 2017 can now automatically construct full 3D simulation models of arbitrary arrays, including non-periodic structures. Even large arrays can then be simulated accurately and quickly, on modest hardware, using CST’s numerically efficient time domain solver with conformal meshing technology.
There are many other new features in CST STUDIO SUITE® 2017- to explore them in detail, see our website which describes all of the exciting new possibilities our complete technology software opens up for our users.
