The Verilog-A compiler has been developed further to add hierarchical structures, access to SPICE models and support for new functions for string and file processing.
The PWLS fixed source now supports WAV files providing an easy stimulus for digital audio applications.
Script functions to read and write WAV files are also available
The DVM source and load symbol dialogs have been updated to use the Power Supply dialog. This allows the ability to define measurements on the four internal probes (voltage, current, gain or magnitude, and phase) for each of the source and load types.
The Magnetics Design Module enables the creation of realistic inductor and transformer models from a large, editable and extendable catalog of standard and customizable components (cores, materials, wires, and bobbins).SIMPLIS MDM enables the calculation of detailed and accurate inductor and transformer losses and temperatures.
Your digital control code, written in C, running in SIMPLIS. No gates to layout and no co-simulation engine required means quick implementation and speedy simulation.
The Multi-Level Lossy Transformer has multiple levels of complexity for use in different simulation objectives. The transformer can have up to a total of 20 windings, and can be configured with varying levels of complexity
Easily convert your source between 6 AC and 13 DC source types and your load between 19 different load types. Also added was the ability to define measurements on the four internal probes (voltage, current, gain or magnitude, phase) for each of the source and load types.
No need to calculate Charge vs Voltage or Flux-Linkages vs Magnetizing Current characteristics for capacitors and inductors, respectively. This new tool will allow you to enter your capacitor's Farads vs Voltage or inductor's Henries vs Magnetizing Current characteristics and convert them to a SIMPLIS PWL model.
Controlled Sources with Limiting outputs now have the option to have ideally limitted outputs. Previously, the output clamping had some small slope when the gained input signal drove into the clamp. With this new option, the output clamping will be ideal at the levels provided.
