Carson, CA (January
-- Intusoft announced today the release of "Magnetics Designer"
8.11 Build 3435. Magnetics Designer is an option to Intusoft's "ICAP/4"
and "Test Designer" analog and mixed-signal SPICE simulation
New Ferrite Cores
from ACME Magnetics USA:
of the development and marketing collaboration with ACME Magnetics in
February of 2008, the Magnetics Designer inductive design and synthesis
product now incorporates several hundred ACME ferrite cores into its existing
database of thousands of geometries and materials. Build 3435's core database
has also been strengthened for accuracy.
enables easy prescription of core area, path length, turns and special
parameters if needed to create a variety of complex inductive devices,
also accommodating non-linear effects. Further, a host of detailed generic
models within a magnetic core library enables users to easily modify any
number of parameters to produce a new device and/or SPICE model from the
Leader in the Design
and Synthesis of Inductive SPICE Models:
Intusoft's Magnetics Designer customer base has used the product for all
types of layer wound (and sector/split bobbin) transformers and inductors.
The software is dialog and wizard-driven, and accommodates easy entry
for a wealth of electrical specifications, ultimately producing a winding
sheet report and SPICE-compatible model including parasitics. Notable
effects calculated with Magnetics Designer include AC resistance loses,
temperature rise in the winding resistance, and core saturation in the
inductive gap. The program also predicts magnetizing and leakage inductance,
inter-winding capacitance, peak flux density, DC winding resistance, high
frequency AC resistance (including proximity effects and skin effect),
copper loss (both AC and DC), core loss, weight, temperature rise, layer
fill and window fill percentage.
In addition to an
extensive core database, a user can add their own cores, wire, and material
information using a supplied Excel© spreadsheet. More on Intusoft's
