CST Studio 2017 SP2 Update | 174.8 mb

Computer Simulation Technology (CST) announces the update of the 2017 version of the electromagnetic simulation tool, CST STUDIO SUITE. The latest edition includes a range of new tools for synthesis and analysis and improvements to existing features. It is now available to order globally.

The electromagnetic simulation software CST STUDIO SUITE® is the culmination of many years of research and development into the most accurate and efficient computational solutions for electromagnetic designs in a wide range of frequencies - static to optical.

The 2017 release builds further on CST’s synthesis and simulation capabilities, with new features for filter design, interference analysis and multiphysics simulation.
