EMA Releases Updated Power IC Model Library for PSpice

Rochester, NY (January 4, 2017) – EMA Design Automation® (www.ema-eda.com), a full-service provider and innovator of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) solutions, and AEi Systems, a world leader in power electronics modeling and analysis, today announced the release of 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 invested 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.
