Product Number: CST-SPARK3D

Product Description

SPARK3D is a unique simulation tool for determining the RF breakdown power level in a wide variety of passive devices, including those based on cavities, waveguides, microstrip and antennas. Field results from CST Studio Suite® simulations can be imported directly into SPARK3D to analyse vacuum breakdown (multipactor) and gas discharge. From this, SPARK3D calculates the maximum power that the device can handle without causing discharge effects.

Typical approximate approaches to determine the RF breakdown power level of any component are intentionally extremely conservative. SPARK3D is based on advanced methods which analyse the breakdown phenomena numerically. SPARK3D can predict more realistic breakdown power levels, significantly improving the design margins.

SPARK3D is an optional part of CST Studio Suite® and is also available as a stand-alone offering.

Key Specification

  • Import the electromagnetic (EM) fields from EM solvers.
  • Automatic determination of the breakdown power threshold.
  • Analysis boxes can be defined in order to choose the critical regions to be analyzed.
  • Real-time output interface with rich simulation data, in table, plot and 3D view forms.
