FilterOverview of CST Filter Design Technology

Event Time: September 14th 2017 17:00 CEST (UTC +02:00)
Approx. 60 min

Modern communication systems are becoming increasingly demanding on the use of the frequency spectrum. In order to deal with stringent spectrum needs, filters are required. The design and analysis of such devices can be challenging and simulation can play a vital part in the development process.

In this webinar, we will give an overview of the different capabilities that CST STUDIO SUITE offers for filter design. We will discuss the various tools that can be used for synthesis and tuning, as well as the multiphysics simulation that is required for power handling analysis.

webinar-general-1Inductive Wireless Charging for Automotive Applications

Event Time: September 21st 2017 17:00 CEST (UTC +02:00)
Approx. 60 min

Wireless charging is expected to play a major part in the roll-out of electric vehicles, allowing cars, trucks, and buses to be charged easily in garages, car parks and bus stops. Already, small-scale wireless charging is used to supply power to mobile devices, and this technology can also be extended to onboard electronics. In this webinar, we will focus on workflows and best practices to predict the performance of individual coils as well as inductively coupled systems in the automotive environment. In particular, the accurate loss prediction in litz wires and ferrite materials is of great importance and will be discussed in detail. Examples will be presented of electric vehicle charging and the charging of electronic devices inside the car.

GyrotronGyrotron Simulation

Event Time: September 28th 2017 17:00 CEST (UTC +02:00)
Approx. 60 min

A gyrotron is typically challenging to simulate in 3D, as they often are electrically large. High-performance computing using one or multiple graphics processing Units (GPU) can accelerate simulations significantly and make the 3D Particle in Cell (PIC) simulation of a gyrotron a viable proposition. A brief introduction will be given of a gyrotron working at the fundamental frequency, but the focus of the webinar will be a simulation of a gyrotron operating at 2nd harmonic frequency. The B-field can be reduced by a factor of 2, but this operation is sensitive in both the physical domain and in simulation. This webinar shows aspects to keep in mind when setting up the simulation and explains the differences between simulation and measurements.

LucedaEfficient Design of Integrated Photonic Circuits

Event Time: October 5th 2017 17:00 CEST (UTC +02:00)
Approx. 60 min

3D electromagnetic field simulations are a very important aspect of integrated photonics design. They are able to describe component behavior when validated models obtained through measurements are unavailable or unreliable. Nevertheless, photonics design teams struggle with the organizational aspects required to consistently configure such simulations properly. It is necessary that the simulated geometry is a correct representation of the final fabricated structure, that the material models used are correct under operating conditions and that the simulation settings are set sensibly to obtain an accurate result in a reasonable time.

webinar-general-1Cubesat Antenna Design

Event Time: October 12th 2017 17:00 CEST (UTC +02:00)
Approx. 60 min

Modern technological advances have seen massive growth in the development of small satellites (‘CubeSats’) for both government and commercial applications. The ‘CubeSat’ challenge revolves around designing miniaturized and lightweight yet complex and reliable systems and getting these to orbit as quickly as possible. Antennas used for communication and space-borne sensors are important components of all satellites. For small satellites, size and weight of these antennas is a critical factor, impacting not only on RF performance, but also on factors such as structural considerations, aerodynamic and thermal performance. In this webinar we will review modern trends of antennas on small satellites. We will also discuss a basic design scenario and how software tools such as Antenna Magus and CST STUDIO SUITE can be used to address the challenges it presents.

SerdesDesign and Characterization of SerDes Channels

Event Time: October 19th 2017 17:00 CEST (UTC +02:00)
Approx. 60 min

High Speed Channel Design typically involves two stages. In the pre-layout stage, the design space is explored through what-if analysis. In the post-layout stage the functionality is verified before a prototype can be manufactured. In both stages realistic transmitter and receiver models including jitter, modulation and equalization need to be considered.

This webinar will highlight the key features for SerDes Channel Design in CST STUDIO SUITE including the new eye diagram tool.

EthernetEMC Simulation of Automotive Ethernet

Event Time: November 2nd 2017 17:00 CET (UTC +01:00)
Approx. 60 min

The demand for high speed data transmission between electronics systems in modern vehicles has experienced a dramatic increase over the past years. The current generation of infotainment and ADAS systems already requires high data rates that are projected to grow even further in the future, fueled by trends like the upcoming introduction of connected and autonomous vehicles.

webinar-general-1True Signal / Power Integrity Co-Extraction and Simulation

Event Time: November 9th 2017 17:00 CET (UTC +01:00)
Approx. 60 min

In this webinar we will present a novel workflow that starts from a Package and PCB layout and yields a high fidelity circuit simulation with signal integrity and power integrity being considered concurrently in the same model. We will give guidelines on what material models should to be used and how to extract an equivalent circuit model that is reliable from DC up to multiple GHz. We will develop these guidelines on a test vehicle before applying them to a real-world model of a DDR4 memory channel that is represented by a 3D model of the Package as well as the system board. As our workflow supports both IBIS and transistor level simulation flows, it is useful to both chip designers as well as system integrators.

webinar-general-1Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) Simulation

Event Time: November 30th 2017 17:00 CET (UTC +01:00)
Approx. 60 min

This presentation focuses on the simulation of Electromagnetic Environmental Effects (E3) including lightning strikes, high-power electromagnetic pulses (EMP) and high intensity radiated fields (HIRF). Simulation is playing an increasingly important role in evaluating system performance when subjected to E3 and investigating strategies for protection. Recent developments in CST Studio Suite offer improvements in simulation efficiency and extension of capability to a wider range of E3 problems. A new approach in CST Studio for modeling radiated susceptibility using a virtual reverberation chamber model will be presented.

ConnectorPrecise Characterization of Multipin Connectors

Event Time: December 7th 2017 17:00 CET (UTC +01:00)
Approx. 60 min

Connectors are an integral part of any electronic system, allowing multiple parts of one system to interconnect. However, they represent a discontinuity, and this discontinuity causes reflections, differential-to-common-mode conversion and radiation. All these phenomena are more intense at higher frequencies and they can significantly distort the transmitted signal which leads to the reduction of transmission speed/bitrate.
