Magus (Pty) Ltd. and CST – Computer Simulation Technology AG (CST) announce the release of Antenna Magus 2019.2, the latest version of the leading antenna design tool. Apart from fixes in the detected issues, this version hosts a couple of noteworthy enhancements as well.

New Antennas, Tools, Libraries and Extensions
- Wire curl antenna. [MAGUS-18404]
- Microstrip to slotline transition. [MAGUS-26920]
- Square slotted dual-band patch antenna. [MAGUS-27155]
- Plano-convex hyperbolic lens. [MAGUS-27158]
- Positive meniscus elliptic lens. [MAGUS-27159]
- Traveling-wave series-fed patch array with inset-fed patch. [MAGUS-27163]
New Features, Extensions and Improvements
- Combline microstrip stub array design has been extended to design for 90 degree orientation of stubs. [MAGUS-27129]
- Anchor Points and Ports have been added to Connectors. [MAGUS-27077]
- Anchor Points in CST Studio Suite models have been update to be linked to Working Coordinate System (WCS). [MAGUS-27146]
- Automotive and Series-fed tags added to patch arrays. [MAGUS-27164]
Bug Fixes
- When exporting an Nx1 patch array to CST studio suite the history in some cases did not update correctly. [CST-53512]
- The bounding box position did not correctly position after resizing the application window. [AMB-2711]
- Bounding Box Values were not positioned correctly when returning from export mode. [AMB-2744]
- Error messages on design objectives disappeared in some workflows. [AMB-2747]
- In the Chart Tracer Tool with Auto mode selected the points re-adjusted when moving the anchor point. This behaviour should only happen in Anchor mode and has been fixed in Auto mode. [AMB-2776]
- When importing 2 traces into the Chart Tracing tool in Polar, the Chart Tracer switched the scale back to Linear if Log was selected first. [AMB-2777]
- Distance to reflective ground plane in Array Tool was not considered for Base Layouts. [AMB-2865]
- When Specifications have been disabled the automatic naming of tweaks did not match the numbering of the initial Design. [AMB-2876]
- The Array Layout selection did not show after duplicating a synthesized array. [AMB-2907]
- Reference impedances did not update correctly in the Compare Window.[AMB-2908]
- When exporting a distribution matrix from the Array tool multiple times, the second and all subsequent exports are in wavelengths, even if physical units were selected. [AMB-2921]
- The Export Macro did not handle index dependent variables correctly. [AMB-2922]
- In some design cases the error may have occurred: "Unable to add NearField monitor…". [AMB-2924]
- The Microstrip Line Tool may have become unresponsive for certain Objectives. [AMB-2932]
- The Dolph-Chebychev distribution taper is not suitable for large arrays with certain combinations of number of elements and side lobe levels. A warning message has been added for such cases. [AMB-2885]
- 3D previews for some devices did not update successfully. [AMB-2954]
- A Custom Template saved with Models without any description may have caused a crash when using or editing the Custom Template. [AMB-2956]
- Performance Estimation and 3D Preview of certain cases of the Printed conical log spiral antenna may have failed. [AMB-2694]
- The 3D Preview for reflectors may have failed to update if the blockage ratio was set to zero. [AMB-2959]

Antenna Magus is a software tool to help accelerate the antenna design and modelling process. It increases efficiency by helping the engineer to make a more informed choice of antenna element, providing a good starting design. Validated antenna models can be exported to CST MICROWAVE STUDIO from a huge antenna database which means that the engineer can get to the customisation phase of an antenna design quickly and reliably.
