Dassault Systèmes has entered an agreement to acquire CST (Computer Simulation Technology), a provider of electromagnetic (EM) and electronics simulation software.
With the acquisition of CST, based near Frankfurt, Germany, Dassault Systèmes will complement its industry solution experiences for realistic multiphysics simulation on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform with full spectrum EM simulation. CST’s CST STUDIO SUITE software is used by designers and engineers at more than 2,000 leading companies in the high-tech, transportation and mobility, aerospace and defense and energy industries to evaluate all types of EM effects during every stage of electronic system design processes, the company states.
CST’s software will be integrated into the 3DEXPERIENCE suite as part of the company’s solutions for simulating structural mechanics, multi-body systems, and head transfer and fluids.
“Electromagnetism is an essential part of a multiphysics simulation strategy for the development of smart and connected products, and IoT devices—from their complex design, to ensuring the performance, reliability and safety of their interactions with their surrounding environment,” said Bernard Charlès, vice chairman and CEO, Dassault Systèmes. “The acquisition of CST is part of our larger, ongoing mission to provide 3DEXPERIENCE universes to explore, accelerate and experience innovation that will achieve a greater harmony between product, nature and life.”
