CST Microwave Studio

CST Microwave Studio is a software tool for 3D electromagnetic field simulation allowing analysing such high frequency equipment like antennas, filters, connectors, planar and multilayer structures, as well as signal integrity and electromagnetic compatibility.

CST Microwave Studio is available for non-commercial purposes and may only be installed on personal computer by RTU employees and doctoral students. For time-consuming simulations, RTU HPC cluster services may be used.

License term: until 31.08.2019.

Updates: until 31.08.2019.

User groups: employees, doctoral students, and HPC users.
