Simplorer 8 Highlights

  • Insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) device characterization tool, allowing users to quickly and accurately create average and dynamic models of power semiconductor devices
  • Power Module Characterization tool, which aids in building DC-to-DC converter models by entering data directly from the manufacturers’ specifications
  • Online model database that includes more than 1,200 SPICE models of common components offered by suppliers; includes a model library of ultra-capacitors from Maxwell Technologies
  • Direct support for SPICE and PSPICE model text
  • Co-simulation links to complementary simulation software, including Simulink, ModelSim and QuestaSim, allowing users to easily incorporate control programs and digital designs for field-programmable gate array (FPGA) semiconductor devices and application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs)
  • Co-simulation links with Verilog for design, verification and implementation of digital logic chips
  • New function handling techniques and solver methodologies to optimize simulation performance
  • Integration of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) VHDL-AMS statistical package, which is useful in defining the statistical variation of parameters of electrical, electronic, and mechatronic components and sub-systems
  • Distributed solve capability that allows users to distribute parametric variations across a network of computers, enabling the exploration of more design possibilities in less time
