AGILENT Technologies and Computer Simulation Technology have formed an alliance to bring three-dimensional electromagnetic (EM) technology to a wider range of RF and microwave design engineers.
The alliance is intended to expand the integration of Agilent’s Advanced Design System (ADS) electronic design automation (EDA) software and CST’s Microwave Studio (CST MWS) software. Integrated 3D EM capabilities help simplify the design flow as well as speed characterisation and analysis of new high-frequency wireless and wireline communications designs.
CST MWS time and frequency domain 3D EM modeling engines allow users to tackle a range of 3D applications. CST MWS offers an open application programming interface that simplifies the process of embedding CST MWS into a design flow. The time domain engine is suited to broadband applications such as signal integrity and package modeling. For narrow-band resonant structures the frequency-domain solver is an alternative.
