Designing a switched-mode power supply that works well is not easy. Designs must be thoroughly verified before being committed to production, a time-intensive task. Online design tools can help to accelerate this step but some of these have limitations to their use. Some place constraints on the size of load or line-step that can be simulated. Other tools prevent additional components or probes from being inserted into the schematic.
An alternative offline tool, Maxim Integrated's EE-Sim® Oasis simulator gives engineers additional degrees of freedom to evaluate their circuit designs. For example, it may be desirable to simulate a circuit in an over-current situation. While other online simulation tools prevent this (stating that the circuit was not designed for such a high load), the Oasis simulator allows this analysis. Additional probes and additional components can also be placed on the schematic allowing a better evaluation of circuit performance.
In this video, you will learn how easy it is to use this powerful free tool.
