CST Webinar: Getting Ahead with the CST STUDIO SUITE Modeling Interface
Date: March 12, 2015
Place: USA

This webinar will demonstrate how the modeling interface in CST STUDIO SUITE® can be used to design structures, and to modify and parameterize imported files. More details to come.


12 - 12 Mar 15

17:00, W. Europe Standard Time




The CST STUDIO SUITE graphical user interface (GUI) has been considered extremely intuitive and easy to use by both newcomers and advanced users since its first release in 1998. Today, CST STUDIO SUITE modeler can be considered as powerful as most of the 3D CAD available on the market and offers easy access to CST’s Complete Technology.

3D electromagnetic (3D EM) simulations are possible for high frequency and low frequency, particle or cable simulations as well as thermal and mechanics simulations without changing user interface or design environment. Unlike most simulation software vendors, CST integrates its tools in the same interface, without the need to learn again new and sophisticated GUIs with weak or complicated integration.

The webinar will introduce the CST modeler, showing how to customize your simulation settings using the configuration wizard. The main features will be presented, including parametric construction and variable definition for optimization. The demo will be based on real-life examples from the worlds of MW&RF and electronics, and introduce advanced functionalities like conformal bending and sensitivity analysis.

Powerful import capabilities from other 3D CAD tools, local modification and parameterization of imported structures will also be shown during the webinar.

Embedded Systems Conference, Boston May 6-7, 2015
Date: March 13 - May 7, 2015
Place: MA USA

The Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) is the industry's largest, most comprehensive technical conference for embedded systems professionals in the U.S. ESC is excited to announce an expanded 2015 USA Conference Series, taking place in Boston [May 6-7]Silicon Valley [July 20-22], and Minneapolis [November 4-5].

Join over 2,000 technical professionals and embedded systems hardware, software, and firmware developers to learn about the latest techniques and tricks for reducing time, cost, and complexity in the embedded development process.

The ESC Boston Technical Conference Program consists of 8 tracks covering all aspects of embedded systems design, from concept development through to prototyping, debugging, and manufacturing decisions.

Through ESC's full program of technical training, post-mortems, teardowns, and hands-on sessions, attendees will absorb practical, actionable information to cut time, money, and complexity out of the embedded development process.

CST Webinar: Getting Ahead with High Performance Computing in CST STUDIO SUITE
Date: March 19, 2015
Place: USA

This webinar shows the high-performance computing (HPC) methods that help CST STUDIO SUITE rise to the challenges of the modern design process. These range from the acceleration of standard workstations and servers through specialized GPUs and co-processors, through to high-end solutions using cluster systems and cloud computing.


19 - 19 Mar 15

17:00, W. Europe Standard Time




Modern development cycles are becoming ever shorter, while at the same time, engineers find themselves confronted with increasingly complex systems. As an essential tool in the product development process, this means that CST STUDIO SUITE is faced with ever more demanding tasks. The increasing requirements are most visible in the growing size of simulation models (system simulation instead of component simulation), which must be calculated efficiently, but also in the increasingly fragmented structure of companies and teams and the centralization of computing capacity in clusters. This webinar shows the high-performance computing (HPC) methods that help CST STUDIO SUITE rise to these challenges.

In this webinar, the different hardware-based acceleration options will be demonstrated and illustrated with simulation examples from various application areas. The range of configurations that will be discussed runs from the acceleration of standard workstations and servers through specialized GPUs and co-processors, through to high-end solutions using cluster systems. Recent developments in CST STUDIO SUITE will be presented and discussed, including the optimization at the software-level and support for new hardware. In addition, helpful tips will be given about the choice and procurement of new hardware to help make the most of the investment in new systems.

A significant challenge that engineers often have to face when using high-end (cluster) systems is that they are not very user-friendly and often require expert HPC knowledge (scripting, use of queuing and scheduling systems, etc.). The latest version of CST STUDIO SUITE improves and simplifies the use on such systems significantly, and this webinar will present various possibilities for integration and efficient access (including remote access). It’s not always possible or practical for the investment in in-house computational resources to be realized at the right time for high-pressure projects. In particular, small and medium businesses often only need HPC on an occasional basis, and lack expertise in the use and maintenance of HPC systems. In these cases, cloud computing makes it possible to access the necessary computing resources on a short-term basis. The possibilities to use CST STUDIO SUITE in the cloud will also be discussed in this webinar.
