"CST's innovative technology is used by market leaders worldwide and will be a valuable option for designers using our Microwave Office software," said James Spoto, AWR president and CEO. "Through the interface, our customers now have access to a specialist tool for the fast and accurate 3D EM simulation to solve high frequency design issues."
"Customer demand for such an interface has increased significantly over the last couple of months," said Dr. Martin Timm, product marketing manager of CST. "The integrated solution will help our joint customers create better designs faster. We are pleased that we will be able to provide a solution in a relatively short period of time thanks to both tools' open architecture."
