What's Good About AMS New PSpice Models? They’re in the 16.5 Release!

Comments(0)Filed under: AMS simulation, Allegro, AMS simulator, AMS, pspice, Library, SPB16.5, Allegro 16.5

The 16.5 AMS library has a range of new models that can be used in diverse applications such as power supply, regulation and monitoring, and signal isolation. The new models include the following:

•    MOSFET Drivers
•    Alkaline Battery
•    Supervisory IC
•    Optocouplers

In addition, PWM and vendor models have been integrated with PSpice.

Read on for more details …

MOSFET Drivers
Two new MOSFET drivers, ISL6614 and ISL6612, have been added with protection features. These models are in the swit_reg library.

Alkaline Battery
MX1500 a non-rechargeable 1.5V Alkaline (manganese dioxide) battery model has been added. The model has nominal voltage of 1.5V and operating voltage range of 0.75V to 1.6V. This model is in the battery library.

Supervisory IC
5 new supervisory IC models,MIC705, MIC706, MIC707, MIC708 and MIC809-5 have been added for power monitoring in microprocessor based circuits. These models are in the mic_sup library.

18 new optocoupler models have been added that can be used in circuits requiring electrical isolation, such as SMPS, medical equipment, multimeters etc. The optocoupler models added to mii_opto library are:

3N243, 3N244, 3N245, 3N261, 3N262, 3N263, 4N47, 4N48, 4N49, MII66158, MII66163,MII66164, MII66183, MII66189, MII66193, MII66223, MII66225 and MII66227.

Voltage Mode Control PWM Controller Models
22 new voltage mode control PWM controller models have been added for devices from leading IC manufacturers. These PWM models can be used in diverse fields such as:

•    For voltage control for ASIC, CPU, DSP Core, and I/O
•    In power supply, such as in base-station, DDR, RAID control, Telecom and Networking, server and desktop computer subsystem, and distributed systems
•    As general DC-DC converters
•    At distributed points of load power architectures

The PWM models are in the swit_reg library.

Integration of Operational Amplifier Models from Vendor
22 models from Microchip Technology have been integrated with PSpice. The models added to the microchip_opamp library are:

MCP6241, MCP6271, MCP6281, MCP6291, MCP651, MCP6541, MCP6547, MCP6V01,MCP6V06, TC1026, TC1029, TC1030, TC1034, TC1043, MCP6141COMP, MCP6001,MCP601, MCP6021, MCP6031, MCP6031COMP, MCP6041, MCP6041COMP, MCP6051,MCP606, MCP6061, MCP6141 and MCP616.

I look forward to your feedback in using these new PSpice models.
