Antenna Magus Version 5.0 Released

Stellenbosch, South Africa and Darmstadt, Germany, July 1, 2014 -- MAGUS (Pty) Ltd (MAGUS) and CST - Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST), announce the release of Antenna Magus Version 5.0 - a tool that helps engineers deliver antenna design projects faster and more effectively than ever before.

Equipping engineers with information to make the antenna design process even quicker and more flexible has been the main focus of development in version 5.0 of Antenna Magus.

The design capabilities for all 250 antenna types in the Antenna Magus database have been upgraded to include 'Smart Design' functionality. This feature can automatically suggest practical design objectives and, as needed, can also instantly convert information provided by the designer between different representations.

A new feature of version 5.0 includes the library of specifications. This library incorporates the properties of typical design specifications used in various industries. Accessing predefined specs speeds up the design process, and helps to achieve more reliable designs. Specification information can be added to Antenna Magus by the user. It is stored and can be easily recalled for re-use in later design projects.

Many of the existing Antenna Magus capabilities have also been improved. The chart tracing tool, which allows engineers to digitize data from images of measurement or simulation plots, has been integrated into the specification library. It now includes automated extraction of representative properties such as beamwidth and sidelobe level. All elements of a design, such as parameter values and 3D images, can also be saved to file or clipboard in various text and image formats, providing easy access to resources for reporting. Antenna Magus integrates seamlessly into leading computational electromagnetic simulation tools such as CST STUDIO SUITE(r), allowing engineers to move to detailed analysis and integration phases with ease.

As Antenna Magus expands, improvements and extensions are continuously being added. To make it easier for users to access the latest features as soon as they are available, a new update mechanism has been added. All future updates and releases can now be downloaded and installed from within the tool's interface at any time.


Antenna Magus Version 5.0 is immediately available and can be purchased through any CST reseller.

About Magus -  
MAGUS (Pty) Ltd develops antenna design and information management software. Antennas designed using its software can be used in a wide variety of applications at various frequency bands, including, but not limited to, telecommunications, mobile devices, aerospace, satellite, automotive, radio astronomy and defense.

Antenna Magus aims to simplify the antenna design process using three basics steps - Explore. Design. Deliver. The database, currently consisting of 250 antennas, may be explored to find the optimal topology. This may then be designed to meet the system criteria, and subsequently exported as fully-parametric, ready-to-run CST MICROWAVE STUDIO models that seamlessly integrate with the design workflow.
