Using the Litz Wire Feature in CST Studio Suite
Litz wires help reduce losses due to skin and proximity effects at higher frequencies up to the MHz range. Litz conductors are made of multiple strands of insulated copper wire woven/twisted together. We are presenting a new CST Studio Suite feature to model and simulate litz wires accurately.

EMC Simulation of the Coupling Between a PCB and a Ground Plane
In this article, we demonstrate how simulation with CST Studio Suite® can help improve emission performance of products. We analyze the coupling between signal traces on a printed circuit board (PCB) and the reference plane as it is commonly the result of interest in electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) measurements. The presented results are discussed for conducted emission but could be extended to radiated emissions.
Optimization of a Quadrupole Magnet with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and CST Studio Suite
Magnet design covers many disciplines of physics, and a unified model for magnet design would have many benefits in accelerating and streamlining the magnet development process. The workflow presented in this blog post allowed a quadrupole magnet to be designed with CATIA, simulated with SIMULIA CST Studio Suite and optimized with Process Composer. This workflow was performed all in one common environment, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Capacitive Touchscreen Sensor Analysis
In this blog post, we review the dedicated capabilities in CST Studio Suite® for the design and optimization of a typical capacitive sensor used in a modern smartwatch.
A New Approach to Speed Up EV Development by Unifying Modeling and Simulation
In this blog post, we will talk about how vehicle development can be sped up by integrating CAD (Computer Aided Design) and CAE (Computer Aided Engineering) on the Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform.
Get a Grip on Sustainability with Tire Engineering Simulation
In this article, we discuss how simulation enables sustainability in tire engineering. Tire dust is a significant source of particulate pollution and will be regulated under the next generation of European emission standards. In addition, the high torque and weight of electric vehicles (EV) mean more wear on EV tires. All these factors mean tire manufacturers cannot avoid sustainability as a design requirement.
System-on-chip Design: Analyzing and Optimizing Source Synchronous Architecture with Electromagnetic Simulation
Source synchronous architecture is used to enable multiple chiplets to be integrated into a single system-on-chip with low latency. To ensure low error rates, the clock strobe and data channels need to be precisely matched. 2D circuit simulation is not enough for analyzing timing – 3D simulation is necessary to accurately model data propagation through structures like silicon interposers and meshed ground planes, especially at high data rates. A paper, recently presented at DesignCon 2023, demonstrates how electromagnetic simulation with SIMULIA CST Studio Suite can accurately model flight time in source synchronous architecture channels.
