RF Breakdown Analysis

January 26, 2024
During this webinar we will focus on the different existing workflows between CST Studio Suite and Spark3D to determine the breakdown level when these effects take place. We will describe the general workflow based on the CST Studio Suite Frequency Domain solver and the specific workflow for narrowband filters based on the CST Studio Suite Eigenmode solver and FD3D. For multifactor breakdown, ad-hoc workflows for different applications will be presented. For instance, the incorporation of DC magnetic field into the breakdown analysis (for the design of e.g. circulators), or the case in which complex signals are employed (multi-carrier and modulated).
