Intersil Corporation has introduced the latest version of its iSIM personal edition circuit simulation design tool, adding time saving features and further simplifying part selection for power and analogue IC designers.
The iSim:PE v7.0 is intended to speed up the design cycle and reduce risks early in any project, identifying parts that can be used in current as well as next-generation designs. The easy to use tool can be used to quickly and reliably selects devices to support increasing power densities, wide input-voltage and temperature ranges, maximum efficiency, fast transient response and other vital specifications. Simulated designs are displayed in an online schematic and can be verified immediately. After verification, iSim generates a Bill of Materials and a comprehensive design report.
New to this release is a tool to quickly search, review and select MOSFETS or diodes based on design requirements, letting users easily filter and sort from all available devices. A new feature allows designers to add jumpers, enabling easily switching between different circuit configurations. Jumpers are electrically modeled as opens or shorts and are compatible with SIMPLIS for power management parts and SIMetrix for analogue ICs.
