Solving an electromagnetic (EM) problem can always use a bit of help, and that is exactly what the new 2013 version of CST’s flagship simulation software, CST STUDIO SUITE™ 2013, is designed to do. This latest version of the EM simulator features improvements in its solver technology as well as a new Ribbon-based graphical user interface (GUI) to make it easier to take advantage of those improvements. The optimized solver helps to speed the processing of large and complex problems. In addition, the software’s the project wizard can speed a simulation by allowing a user to select from preconfigured simulation types covering a wide range of applications.

A configuration that might provide a solution can be readily modified to meet the specific needs of an application. The Ribbon-based GUI also helps to simplify the simulation experience by grouping a user’s menus and operating features to save time on a simulation.
