TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CST Trust Company (“CST”), a leading provider of financial, administrative and advisory solutions, has entered the Canadian custody market as a National Housing Act Mortgage-Backed Securities (NHA MBS) custodian and title custodian, following its qualification last week by the Canada Mortgage Housing Corporation (CMHC). As the first new entrant to the market in 30 years, CST will transform the documentation and tracking processes around Canada’s NHA MBS program, and assets held within, through state-of-the-art technology and automation. While adhering to CMHC requirements, CST will also create a digital registry of Canadian mortgages. This electronic repository, with CST as the registered title holder, will track beneficial ownership of every mortgage from origination through its sale to investors and subsequent securitization. This will provide issuers, originators and investors with easily searchable, on-demand access to specific asset information whenever they need it. The new technology will also eliminate delays and potential inaccuracies inherent in manual attestation, in which custodians certify that documentation is complete, as well as in the storage of physical documents off-site. Already, both a top-three Canadian bank in mortgage securitization and an IIROC dealer have selected CST as its new mortgage custodian, becoming the first bank and dealer to digitize their NHA MBS mortgage records. With the introduction of the new service, CST also launches its new Structured Financial Services group. Through the new business unit, CST will be the only tech-enabled professional services firm in North America offering a full range of structured financial solutions to capital markets, ranging from trustee to customized administration functions on an advisory basis. The newly appointed head of the division, Frank Turzanski, will lead a dedicated and experienced team, providing clients with high-touch, personal service. Mr. Turzanski brings more than ten years of experience in structured finance to the role, having previously held progressively senior positions at other major Canadian financial institutions. “CST is poised to reinvent the process of mortgage custody in Canada, using proprietary technology to create efficiencies in a market that has long been bogged down by paperwork and manual processes,” said Mr. Turzanski, Senior Vice President at CST. “Our goal is to move beyond the physical document storage system that currently exists, and advance the market towards an ‘e-signature’ model. Issuers, originators and investors alike will benefit from increased efficiency and reduced risk.” “As we grow our suite of service offerings, we aim to be a ‘one-stop shop’ for our clients’ structured finance needs,” said Margot Jordan, President and Chief Executive Officer at CST. “With regulated trust companies in the U.S. and Canada, we have a distinct advantage over our peers in terms of the range of solutions we are able to provide. And with Frank at the helm, our clients will benefit from his extensive industry expertise and from his team’s best-in-class approach to service.” The Structured Financial Services group will offer a broad suite of solutions including custodial, administrative agency, special purpose vehicle (SPV) administration, covered bond administration, asset-backed commercial paper administration, and other structured finance services. The unit complements CST’s comprehensive range of issuer services, including corporate trust, transfer agency and corporate actions services, among others. Headquartered in Canada, with offices in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver, CST Trust Company (CST) provides issuers global solutions through local access points. CST and its affiliate, American Stock Transfer &Trust Company, LLC (AST), provide fully integrated services that include comprehensive stock transfer, corporate trust, employee plan services, corporate proxy solicitation and advisory solutions, information agent, shareholder identification, asset recovery, and investment management offerings to more than 8,000 public issues and over five million shareholders. Together, CST and AST serve clients located throughout North America that range in size from initial public offerings to Fortune 100 companies.

This paper describes the modeling and simulation method and corresponding results of the Hydropower Plant (HPP) Tala, which is the largest existing plant in Bhutan with 6 units of 170 MW high pressure Pelton turbines and a complex control structure. The goal of the associated overall project is to create a complete dynamic model of the Bhutan power system for investigations concerning stability, island operation, network restoration and system optimization. To test the dynamic behavior, measurements of transient processes in different operation modes of the HPP Tala for one exemplary unit have been conducted. Based on the analysis of the measurements and the plant documentation, a detailed practice-oriented high quality nonlinear model was developed and validated step by step, using the Matlab/Simulink software. Relying on the model, some initial investigations of the dynamic behavior of the plant with the focus on islanded operation were conducted. © 2015 IEEE.

This paper discusses a multi-solver based approach to tackle challenging electromagnetic simulations wherein small antennas are mounted on electrically large bodies. Using more than one numerical solver and/or mesh type permits the cross checking of the virtual results, especially relevant when the simulation presents hard, time consuming or costly laboratory measurements. © 2015 IEEE.

To achieve high accuracy even in the mΩ- And GHz-region for measurement of power supply impedances in printed circuit boards, in most cases the 2-port VNA measurement is the tool of choice. Due to space and cost constraints, the use of soldered SMA-connectors for the measurement from both sides of the PCB is not applicable. If the impedance shall be measured in the area below an IC, where no connector with pins for through-holes can be used, the measurement is only possible from the opposite side of the PCB, i.e. from only one side. In this paper a more practical approach is presented, which requires only a fraction of space of an SMA-connector (8 square millimeters instead of 50) and only one side of the PCB for probing. Small contact pads with short traces and vias down to the inner power- And ground-planes are used. These contact pads are contacted by relatively inexpensive and robust wafer-probers, having only one signal- And one ground-pin with a contact distance of 500μm. To evaluate the performance of this approach, a 3D-field-simulation with CST MWS is used. Several cases are considered: SMA-connectors, GSG-probes, SG/GS-probes, measurement from one side of the PCB and the influence of the deembedding of the via-trace-pad-unit on the results.

The use of 3D EM simulation with CST Microwave Studio for solving a GSM immunity issue is shown. A device is simulated with 3D simulation software and the CAD model is imported and the material properties of the different parts are adjusted for 3D field calculation. A strong resonance at 917 MHz is observed for all three geometrical E-field components x, y and z. The capacitance between the crimp pad and PCB GND is found to reduce the impedance between the housing and PCB GND around 900 MHz and reduces the quality of the cavity. The basic idea of soldering the amplifier holder to the PCB GND system by means of a 5 pF capacitor is verified by a series of simulations. The contact of housing-GND to PCBGND has an impact on the cavity resonance quality and frequency and the capacitors placed in the resonance cavity pick up the disturber and feed it to the amplifier.

Remote sensing techniques are widely used for land cover classification and related analyses; however the availability of high resolution images have limited the accuracy of pixel based approaches. In this paper, we have analyzed the feasibility of incorporating contextual information to a support machine and have evaluated its performances with reference to the traditional approaches. Accuracy improvement of the proposed approach may be attributed to the effectiveness in combining spatial and spectral information. © 2013 IEEE.

The n-butanol phase of the methanolic leaves extract of Microtrichia perotitii DC was studied for its analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities. Both percent inhibition obtained from analgesic (59.30% for 100 mg/kg, 33.90% for 50 mg/kg and 69.20% for 25 mg/kg i.p) and anti-inflammatory (values for 25, 50 and 100 mg/kg were found significantly different at P < 05, P < 0.01 and P < 0.001) (mean paw diameter in hours) studies has shown that the leaves have very strong activity to prevent pains (writhing) in the central system and motor performance of the mice as well as the growth of oedema in the hind paw of the rats respectively. The analgesic effect is dosage independent while the anti-inflammatory effect is dosage dependent and all these activities could be associated with the type of phytochemicals likely to be present in the leaves of plant. © 2010 Academic Journals.
