austriamicrosystems has introduced a design, simulation, and analysis tool to evaluate the performance of its DC-DC ICs.

analogbench simulates confidential user designs, showing performance and analysis simulations and highlighting the DC-DC's efficiencies. The designer inputs circuit voltage and current requirements and the IC selector suggests the best part for the design. Users can design with austriamicrosystems' buck and boost converter ICs.

analogbench generates a design proposal tailored to meet the user's requirements, automatically calculates external components, and configures the application circuit. The design is represented in an interactive web schematic which allows the user to change input and output values and simulate the performance under AC and transient conditions. Users can quickly and easily run a number of "What-If" analyses from the convenience of their web browser. This advanced web based virtual test bench is simple to use, and requires no software download or installation to design and simulate DC-DC circuits.

"analogbench is a proficient tool to help customers get to production faster," stated Bruce Ulrich, Director of Marketing for Standard Linear and Wireless at austriamicrosystems. "Our datasheet shows simulations for the reference design, while analogbench enables the customer to modify the circuit, inputs, and load requirements according to unique needs, and simulate the results. The customer benefit is a higher confidence in his unique circuit, with fewer surprises at prototype. We anticipate this will increase the customer's confidence in his design and improve his time to market."

The resulting waveforms, such as bode plot and load transient, are available for analysis using WebScopeä, a fast and sophisticated interactive waveform viewer. The circuit design, schematic, analysis results, and BOM can be printed and/or saved in the user's private design space for future use. analogbench users can also download the schematic together with a free offline version of analogbench.
