Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) and Delcross Technologies have announced a distribution agreement to make CST the authorized reseller of EMIT and Savant.
EMIT analyzes multi-antenna platforms and predicts cosite interference between RF systems attached to the antennas. EMIT is able to take output data directly from CST STUDIO SUITE® and, along with other data such as parametric radio models or actual measurements, build up a complete system-level picture of potential interference problems. Once the system has been simulated, strategies for mitigating interference effects can be explored within the software.
Savant predicts the performance of antennas as installed on electrically-large platforms. Through hardware and algorithmic acceleration, Savant can rapidly simulate in-situ antenna performance on platforms spanning hundreds or thousands of wavelengths. Both near-field and far-field antenna data from CST STUDIO SUITE can be used as input to Savant, not just for further far-field and near-field simulations but also for antenna coupling simulations. Savant contains a number of advanced physics models, including creeping wave, PTD wedge diffraction and curved surface divergence factor, along with diagnostic features, built-in antenna models and an intuitive user interface; these are just a few of the features that make Savant a powerful tool for rapidly predicting installed antenna performance.
With the addition of EMIT and Savant, CST now offers a complete workflow solution for antenna design, installed performance and cosite analysis. System integrators can now investigate the complete performance of their system before any metal is cut. With real estate at a premium on complex vehicular platforms, small wireless devices and base station towers, such a workflow can allow fast feasibility studies and ensure the best possible real-world performance.
