SIMEC has announced the availability of SPICE-Pack, a new extension to the popular multidomain system simulation package SIMPLORER. SPICE-Pack is a solver extension in form of a plug in module. The dynamic link library provides the functionality of the Spice 3F5 semiconductor models.

"With SPICE-Pack we provide SIMPLORER users with another high functionality extension.

Users can access the vast amount of SPICE based models and integrate them in their SIMPLORER models", said Uwe Knorr, VP Markting and Sales of SIMEC.

"The highly stable SPICE 3F5 implementation computes SPICE models fast and efficient.

The package comes with a semiautomatic conversion tool that supports the engineer in translating SPICE netlists to SIMPLORER.

SPICE-Pack is a major step in our continuing effort to improve the model data base and the ease of use of SIMPLORER".

SPICE-Pack was developed in close collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute of Integrated Electronic Circuits in Dresden, Germany.

Based on the long experience of the Fraunhofer Institute it was possible to develop the solver extension for SIMPLORER in a very short time.

As a first application of SPICE-Pack the International Rectifier power devices library was translated and verified.

The library is part of SPICE-Pack.

SIMPLORER was developed for the power electronics and drive system market.

Complex drive systems, motion control and mechatronic applications can be easily analysed using SIMPLORER's unique combination of electronic circuits, block diagrams and state machines.

This combination offers a simultaneous computation of the power electronic converter at the circuit level and the control unit on a block diagram or state machine level.

The user easily can switch between the levels and save time both during the modeling phase and the simulation.

SPICE-Pack is available now on an installation CD-ROM.

The price for one licence is Euro 1000.
