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.

Managing Footprints With Integrated EDA Tools

02/23/2021 | Matt Walsh, Siemens Digital Industries Software
Electronics companies are always under great pressure to continually grow and innovate. In addition to navigating ever-accelerating design cycles, they must also address and overcome generational complexities associated with their products, the underlying components they use, and the human capital accountable for delivering on time and on budget. Electronics firms can ill afford the time and resource inefficiencies associated with manually correcting design errors, poor library data integrity, or other inconsistencies leading to missed deadlines or even costly re-spins.

A Library Management Cautionary Tale

02/12/2021 | Steven V. Chavez, CID+
The library management of footprints, land patterns, or cells—however you refer to them in your ecosystem—is one of the most critical items in the foundation of any PCB or CCA design. When I was asked to write an article on this topic, so many thoughts and experiences instantly flooded my mind. After 30+ years of designing PCBs throughout the industry, I have my share of experiences and stories about footprints. One particular experience stands out.

Best Practices: Footprint Design and CAD Library Management
