Microwave Filter Design Software
Fest3D is a software tool capable of analyzing complex passive microwave components based on waveguide and coaxial cavity technology in very short computational times with high accuracy compared to mode-matching methods.
CST Studio Suite Fest3D is a software tool capable of analyzing complex passive microwave components based on waveguide and cavity technology in very short computational times with high accuracy. The main objective of this software tool is to support the microwave component design/manufacturing industries to decrease both the time to market and the development costs for the next generation of communication systems.
Key Features Fest3D
- Fast & Accurate This software is based on a modal approach in which the device is divided into different blocks connected through the electromagnetic modes at the interface. Thanks to this divide-and-conquer approach, and to the use of unique algorithms, Fest3D ensures a high degree of accuracy while reducing the need of computational resources.
- Versatile In order to cope with complex 2D and 3D building blocks, Fest3D uses an efficient e lectromagnetic n umerical method—the Boundary Integral-Resonant Mode Expansion (BI-RME)—which is able to provide a broadband analysis efficiently. In addition to this, and thanks to the integration of the High Frequency solver (based on Finite Elements) of CST Studio Suite, Fest3D is capable of simulating most of the components in waveguide and/or cavity technology.
- Integration into CST Studio Suite This solver is available within the CST Studio Suite schematic. This allows the creation of large structures combining CST Studio Suite and Fest3D projects. In addition, Fest3D can use most of the features in CST Studio Suite such as optimization through the coupling matrix for filter d esign, p arameter s weeps, e tc.
