Easy-to-use high-frequency electromagnetic simulation on the cloud

CST Studio Suite in the Cloud

3DEXPERIENCE ELECTROMAGNETICS brings high- and low-frequency electromagnetic simulation to the cloud. This 3DEXPERIENCE-integrated packaging of CST Studio Suite connects the entire value chain, from design to manufacturing to management, to powerful electromagnetic simulation, cutting down on the costs of R&D by shortening the iteration cycle, identifying and addressing design flaws early in development, and bringing parts to market faster.

3DEXPERIENCE ELECTROMAGNETICS provides fast, accurate, accessible electromagnetic simulation for engineers, designers, and researchers working in many fields, including microwaves, RF & optical, EDA & electronics, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), particle dynamics, statics, and low frequencies.

“We chose a 3D EXPERIENCE Works Simulation solution because it’s cloud-based, which supports our remotely located engineering organization, works seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS design data, and incorporates the Abaqus Explicit solver, which is best suited for the types of simulation studies that we need to conduct on our parts, which can involve hyperelasticity, creep, fatigue, and contact.”

– Thomas Morgan
Design Engineer
