Pittsburgh - February 4, 2003 - Ansoft Corporation (NASDAQ: ANST) today released the SIMPLORER® Power Suite, an integrated software package that addresses the rapidly increasing demand for smaller, more reliable power designs in automotive, aerospace, and industrial automation.

"The SIMPLORER Power Suite provides a complete design environment for power-electronic and system designers. Its capabilities far exceed those of traditional SPICE-based simulators," said Uwe Knorr, Vice President of Ansoft's EM Division. "These capabilities, along with the seamless integration of accurate models generated by PExprt, save designers prototype iterations, time, and money."

The suite combines an enhanced version of SIMPLORER, Ansoft's industry-leading system simulation software, and PExprt™, the first modeling tool to allow engineers to quickly evaluate thousands of possible designs and accurately predict the performance of magnetic components. It boosts the functionality of both SIMPLORER and PExprt.

SIMPLORER now includes:

  • Enhanced DC and small-signal AC simulation capabilities
  • Nonlinear ferrite core modeling capability
  • Various semiconductor and IC models
  • SPICE compatibility

PExprt now includes:

  • Foil conductors and square and twisted wire types
  • Generation of nonlinear component models for transformers and inductors, complete with current, voltage, and power as output parameters for direct import into SIMPLORER

The suite also includes a new library containing frequently used DC/DC converter and other power-electronic topologies. The models are available as switching and averaged versions supporting different levels of analysis.

The SIMPLORER Power Suite is comprised of SIMPLORER, PExprt, and the Switch Mode Power Supply library. The suite was developed in close collaboration with the Electronic Engineering Division of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain.
