Keywords:mechatronic  multi-domain systems  modelling  backplane technology 

Using the product's communication backplane technologies, these standard modelling techniques and modelling languages can be used concurrently within the same schematic, allowing users to create analogue, digital and mixed-signal multi-domain designs, to manage modelling data, and to execute simulations.

The user interface supports multi-page designs and multiple levels of hierarchy, provides maximum flexibility, and eliminates the need for error-prone mathematical transformations and model analogies employed by single-domain simulation tools.

An IGBT device characterisation tool allows users to quickly and accurately create average and dynamic models of power semiconductor devices.

Simplorer's Power Module Characterisation tool aids in building DC/DC converter models by entering data directly from the manufacturers' specifications.

An online model database includes more than 1,200 SPICE models of common components offered by suppliers and a model library of ultra-capacitors from Maxwell Technologies.

Simplorer also provides co-simulation links to complementary simulation software, including Simulink, ModelSim and QuestaSim, allowing users to easily incorporate control programs and digital designs for FPGA semiconductor devices and ASICs. It also provides co-simulation links with Verilog for design, verification and implementation of digital logic chips.

In addition, Simplorer includes the Society of Automotive Engineers VHDL-AMS statistical package for defining the statistical variation of parameters of electrical, electronic and mechatronic components and sub-systems. Distributed solve capability allows users to distribute parametric variations across a network of computers, enabling the exploration of more design possibilities in less time.
