PRESS RELEASE

CST Studio Suite 2013

Computer Simulation Technology (CST) has announced that shipping has begun for the latest version of its flagship product, CST Studio Suite 2013. Comprising a range of EM simulation tools, including the high-frequency package, CST Microwave Studio (CST MWS), CST Studio Suite is used by engineers working in fields ranging from communications and electronics to healthcare and aviation, helping them to model electromagnetic phenomena and evaluate their designs for optimal performance.

Combining high-frequency and low-frequency simulation tools alongside specialised solvers for applications such as PCBs, cables and charged particle devices, the solution can be applied to many typical engineering tasks, such as EMC/EMI evaluation, SI and PI analysis, design optimisation, and the tuning of antennas and filters.

CST states that the most obvious enhancement in the 2013 version is the Ribbon-based user interface. The Ribbon is centred on the standard simulation workflow, leading the engineer from set-up and modelling to simulation and post-processing. The Ribbon is supplemented by new features, including the Project Wizard and QuickStart Guide, which make the process of preparing and configuring a new project straightforward.
