Monolithic Power Systems (MPS) has announced the DC/DC Designer tool with a graphical user interface (GUI) to simulate power supply circuits tailored to a specific application.
MPS says given an MPS regulator, target performance specifications, and (optionally) key external components, the DC/DC Designer can design a circuit complete with optimal external components to best meet target specifications. Its circuit simulation then provides key performance data (such as efficiency, transient performance, etc.) and waveforms (such as ripple, switching transients, etc.). When the user is satisfied with the circuit design, the DC/DC Designer then generates a schematic, a layout guide, and a bill of materials.
Monolithic Power Systems is a fabless semiconductor company specializing in high-performance analog ICs.
