ST Microelectronics has developed a new evaluation platform to simulate ST's power chips such as DC-DC converters and ViPER monolithic ICs for SMPS design. Through this platform designers can simulate ST's power ICs on Cadence' OrCAD Pspice tool.
ST has already has a free tool called SMPS@eDesign Studio to design and simulate switching power supplies. With this new evaluation platform designs obtained via SMPS@eDesign Studio can be accurately simulated within the Cadence OrCAD platform using widely popular PSpice.
"OrCAD technology is a great way to enable our customers to test drive ST's analog and power products," said Carmelo Papa, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Industrial and Multisegment Sector, STMicroelectronics. "Evaluating our chips with the Cadence software will strengthen our customers' confidence to have received the highest quality ICs needed for their success."
