EMA Releases Updated Power IC Model Library for PSpice


Reading time ( words)

EMA Design Automation, a full-service provider and innovator of electronic design automation (EDA) solutions, and AEi Systems, a world leader in power electronics modeling, analysis and design, has released version 4.2 of AEi Systems’ Power IC Model Library for the Cadence® PSpice® simulator.

“We’ve spent over 1,000 man-hours testing, simulating, and optimizing the new models in this release,” said Charles Hymowitz, managing director at AEi Systems.  “Overall we’ve investedEMA PR fig.JPG about 17,000 hours creating and verifying the 600+ models in this library.”

Version 4.2 has over 600 high-fidelity and correlated simulation models for power electronic designs. The latest version adds test sources for automotive applications covering ISO 76750/ISO 7637-2 and FMC1278 including CI220 (load dump), CI230A (power cycling), CI250 (voltage offset), and CI260A-E (voltage dropout). These sources are useful for testing transient disturbances and electromagnetic compatibility in automotive systems.

The Power IC Model Library includes model netlists in PSpice syntax, schematic symbols for both Cadence OrCAD® Capture and legacy schematics, and a set of example application circuits for many of the IC models. The models are compatible with the latest OrCAD Capture version 17.x software.

New additions for version 4.2 of the Power IC Model Library include:

  • Automotive stimulus sources
  • LISN models
  • Opamp and comparator models
  • Ferrite beads
  • Regulators
  • Phototransistors and photocouplers
  • MOVs

The Power IC Model Library for PSpice also includes:

  • Popular parts: UCC3895, xx117, UC384x, UC152x, UCC380x, LT124x, UC182x, UC1846, TL431, IR2110
  • Nonlinear Magnetic Cores, Transformers, Opto-Couplers and MOVs
  • BJTs, Diodes, Zeners, Varactors, Tantalum Capacitors, MOSFETs
  • Models for parts from Texas Instruments, Intersil, ON Semiconductor, Linear Technology, International Rectifier, Micrel, Vishay, and others

The Power IC Model Library is available immediately and priced at $1,995, plus yearly maintenance of $495.  Existing customers on maintenance can download the updated version as part of their maintenance contract.

Wild River ISI-56 Platform Accelerates SerDes Testing

02/02/2021 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
I recently spoke with Al Neves, founder and CTO of Wild River Technology, about the release of their new ISI-56 loss modeling platform. Al explains why it was so critical that this tool meets the stringent requirements of the IEEE P370 specification (which he helped develop), and why he believes this is currently the best tool for SerDes testing and characterization.

Stephen Chavez and Happy Holden on Designing Reliable Vias

12/02/2020 | I-Connect007 Editorial Team
Andy Shaughnessy and Happy Holden speak with Stephen Chavez, a staff engineer with an aerospace company and chairman of the Printed Circuit Engineering Association (PCEA), about designing vias for greater reliability. They also address several areas where they can look to improve reliability, a variety of steps that designers should take to help ensure more robust vias, and some testing and educational resources that PCB designers and design engineers should be aware of.

I-Connect007 Editor’s Choice: Five Must-Reads for the Week

08/28/2020 | Andy Shaughnessy, Design007 Magazine
This week, we have quite a potpourri for you. There's good news about the PCB market. And as this year continues to surprise us at every turn, companies are discovering the true nature of their leaders. Todd Kolmodin has a great column about bosses and leaders and why the two words are not synonymous. Not to be outdone, columnist Barry Olney found a way to explain the wavelength of electromagnetic energy by using a chocolate bar and a microwave oven. We also have great articles by Sagi Reuven and Pete Starkey.
