Simulation Software Suite Extends Functionality In New Version

The 2016 version of CST STUDIO SUITE electromagnetic simulation tool has been developed to both extend the capabilities of the software and to improve its foundations. The package contains solvers for applications across the electromagnetic spectrum, as well as multiphysics and particle applications. All tools are available within a single graphical user interface with strong integration between them. New features allow simulation to be used in unique ways in the design process. The Integral Equation Solver (I-solver) now includes Characteristic Mode Analysis (CMA), a method for investigating the behavior of a radiating structure by calculating the current modes that it can support.
