San Pedro, CA (June 18, 2001) -- Intusoft (Hall 12, Stand 231) will demonstrate a new Windows-based version of its SpiceMod data sheet modeling program at the PCIM Europe conference in Nuremberg, Germany this week. The PCIM Europe expo takes place on June 19-21st in Nuremberg, Germany. SpiceMod is found in the latest Intusoft Power Supply Designer package, software for the toughest switching mode power supply designs.
SpiceMod is a simple program designed to help engineers produce accurate
SPICE models for thousands of semiconductors. The program eliminates the
need to learn the intricacies of SPICE model parameters and prevents laborious
The SpiceMod program incorporates a new Library Manager, which creates
library templates that place new models into test drawings. The program
combination is integrated into all new Test Designer, ICAP/4 Windows Professional
and Power Supply Designer packages. It is also sold as a maintenance upgrade
for current users of these programs.
"Library Manager is significant because it allows a SpiceMod user to make, modify, store and compare revised models with archived model files," said Larry Meares, founder and president of Intusoft, San Pedro-based designer of circuit simulation and test software. "The program also allows you to create a test circuit for each model you develop and link it to that model. This gives the user incredible flexibility."
When user changes are made, the parameters and pins affected are shown, and the program automatically finds and consistently modifies each subcircuit throughout the model code. Users can easily document their model changes thanks to built-in help files in .RTF format.
In addition, SpiceMod has been converted from DOS to Windows, and its modeling accuracy has been improved. The SCR model now takes temperature as a parameter and allows you to see how temperature affects key parameters within a spreadsheet.
