Intersil Intros New iSim Online Simulation Tool

November 24, 2003 by Jeff Shepard

Intersil Corp. (Milpitas, CA) announced its new online, live circuit, simulation tool, iSim™, which provides Bode plot analysis using a simple interactive "edit-in-place" schematic based on actual reference designs. The iSim circuit simulation tool is now part of Intersil’s online Technical Design Center where power supply engineers can find documentation, design resources, other design tools and product information.

Each designer logs in to a personal account in which simulations can be stored and retrieved as needed. Components in schematics can be edited in place and parasitic components can be modified. Detailed spice-based execution parameters are available for inspection. Simulation results are shown directly in the browser and multiple host servers run the simulations without any need for users to download and install software on their computer. An interactive waveform viewer provides post-simulation data analysis for any selected node and includes interactive marker functions along with data readout. Optimized circuits can be captured with a complete bill of materials ready for hardware prototyping.
