Traditional electronics is all about handling data. Power electronics (PE) is all about handling power: generating it, converting it, and moving it from source to load. Today, this technology is widely applied to a wide range of industries, including power utility generation and distribution, automotive, and consumer electronics. Keysight delivers design and modeling tools to accelerate your PE workflow and ensure your designs are accurate, reliable, and built for optimal performance.

Rethink Your EDA Tools

Modern power supplies demand ultra-precise power and current switching. Designing these supplies requires a modern circuit design tool. Traditional pre-layout Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis (SPICE) is no longer enough. SPICE doesn’t account for voltage spikes and electromagnetic (EM) interference issues caused by layout parasitics. A new workflow that adds a post-layout EM-circuit co-simulation stage is needed to find and fix these problems.

Simulate Time and Frequency Domains

PathWave Design offers time- and frequency-domain simulation of both lumped and distributed elements. The harmonic balance (HB) simulator covers the frequency domain and yields a steady state solution rapidly, while Keysight's EM field solvers address distributed effects.

With an integrated EM field solver, you can pinpoint and fix the root cause of layout parasitics. An EM field solver helps you to model EM interference and compatibility in a virtual chamber. The integrated tool flow reduces manual operations, speeds design, and reduces mistakes.

Access Accurate Models

Keysight is the only vendor that provides your semiconductor component vendors with complete end-to-end modeling solutions. These solutions provide tools for automated measurements, accurate device model extraction, comprehensive qualification, and final process design kit (PDK) validation. As a result, your vendor can provide you the accurate models you need for ADS simulation.
