SIMPLIS Technologies attended APEC 2017 in Tampa, FL on March 26-30, 2017. We were at Booth #1223 on the Main Exhibition Hall Floor. Our Exhibitor Seminar was held on Tuesday, March 28th from 2:15-2:45PM in Room 22 where Christopher Bridge and Tom Wilson presented on the topic of "Performing AC Analyses on PFC Converters": Because the SIMPLIS Periodic Operating Point (POP) & AC analyses are performed at a single operating frequency, performing AC analyses on time-domain simulation models of PFC converters is challenging, since the circuit typically has no true steady-state when the… Read more

Simplis Technologies, Inc. announces the release of SIMetrix/SIMPLIS 6.2. New features include data registers for the Advanced Digital components, the selection of MOSFETs and Diodes by device ratings, and the ability to attach measurements to fixed probes. The user selected measurements are updated after each simulation on the graph viewer and, if desired, on the schematic. In addition to these features, an enhanced diagnostic error message is generated when the Periodic Operating Point analysis is unable to find the steady-state operating point of a system. For additional detail please see… Read more

*/ SIMPLIS Technologies is pleased to announce that we have released version 8.1 of SIMetrix/SIMPLIS.  Below is the breakdown of the major changes. New Features for Both SIMetrix and SIMPLIS Arbitrary Fixed Probe A new customisable fixed probe is now available. This is an arbitrary fixed probe which can plot an expression of any combination of node voltages and device currents. With the new probe you enter an expression relating any combination of voltages and currents. A symbol for the probe is then automatically created which can be placed on the schematic in the usual way.… Read more
