Microchip Technology Ltd
14 June 2006
Microchip has announced a Web-based simulation tool for power-management applications. Known as the Mindi simulation tool, the new software enables designers to quickly generate detailed circuit diagrams and specify associated passive components for a variety of power-supply and battery-charger applications.
Circuits developed on the web using the Mindi tool can be downloaded to a PC and ported directly into system diagrams.
Mindi is available for free on Microchip’s Web site at www.microchip.com/Mindi.
The Mindi simulation tool was designed for engineers of all experience levels. The software assists designers in choosing system components by recommending a wide range of Microchip PIC® microcontrollers and analog products, based upon the circuit. Being Web-based, the Mindi simulation tool provides real-time updates ensuring that the latest circuit developments and products are provided.
Applications supported by the Mindi simulation tool include power supplies such as DC/DC converters for handheld electronics devices, and battery chargers for rechargeable battery-powered devices.
