CST CABLE STUDIO™ (CST CS) is dedicated to the three-dimensional analysis of signal integrity (SI), conducted emission (CE), radiated emission (RE), and electromagnetic susceptibility (EMS) of complex cable structures in electrically large systems. It provides powerful import filters from popular MCAD and ECAD tools for smooth integration into the industrial workflow.

With its main focus on automotive and aerospace applications, CST CS is equipped with enhanced visualization capabilities in order to interactively highlight selected signals or cables in both the 3D graphic view and the 2D schematic view. Visual positioning checks of connectors and cables are easily possible. Information about which cable carries which signal or which wires are connected to which connector pins can be directly accessed in the CST CS navigation tree.

CST CABLE STUDIO™ is fully integrated in CST STUDIO SUITE™ so users benefit from the manpower and experience invested in its world renowned user interface. CST CABLE STUDIO™ can easily exchange data with full 3D solvers of CST MICROWAVE STUDIO® for EMC/EMI simulations.

"New electronic systems accompany most of the technical innovations in automotive industry. In consequence of the growing number of electrical equipment the electromagnetic noise level is rising in automobiles. The increased electromagnetic emissions however raise the risk to violate EMC standards and perturb the functional integrity of new and existing electronic systems. Hence, mastering of potential EMC problems in new automobiles becomes increasingly important to the car industry. Numerical simulation is an important key for the detection and rejection of potential EMC problems early in the design process.."

Analyzing Power Integrity Issues from Power Plane Interactions

When a printed circuit board (PCB) includes a power plane that is near to signal traces or other power planes, there is a significant risk of energy transfer between parts of the system. Not only does this coupling lead to power switching noise being transferred into data signals, it also means that power supply systems may demonstrate additional resonances that are not seen in the individual components. This can affect the power integrity of the PCB and may reduce its speed or reliability. This paper will explore some of the potential power integrity issues that can affect a PCB and explain how simulation can be used to help reduce these effects..Read full article..
