TI’s WEBENCH Schematic Editor speeds power management designs

WEBENCH Schematic Editor from Texas Instruments is a new editing and simulation feature that enables engineers to customize power management designs and simulate the circuit created within the WEBENCH environment.  WEBENCH Schematic Editor will be demonstrated in TI’s booth #805 at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) in Fort Worth, Texas, March 17-19 .

TI’s cost-free WEBENCH tools have dramatically simplified and accelerated the design process for more than 325,000 engineers worldwide since 1999. A complete design can be quickly created, optimized and simulated online with the powerful calculation algorithms and SPICE simulator provided by WEBENCH Power Designer. With the introduction of WEBENCH Schematic Editor, engineers can now add components and wiring to modify the power supply design, conduct SPICE simulations on the new circuit, and then export the modified schematic to a computer-aided design (CAD) platform.  This new feature dramatically reduces design and verification time from hours to minutes.

Key features

  • Incorporate features like multiple mixed output capacitors, filtering, board parasitics and snubber circuits into WEBENCH power supply designs.
  • Select from a library of over 40,000 components to customize the design.
  • Simulate custom power designs within WEBENCH before exporting to industry-leading CAD development platforms, such as Cadence OrCAD Capture CIS, Mentor Graphics Xpedition xDX Designer, CADSoft EAGLE, and Altium formats, such as Altium Designer .

TI claims that WEBENCH Designer and Architect are the industry’s only online tools that enable end-to-end circuit design and simulation. Component libraries include more than 40,000 components from 120 manufacturers. Price and availability are updated hourly by TI's distribution partners for design optimization and production planning. Offered in eight languages, the user can compare complete system designs and make supply chain decisions in minutes. Click here to start a cost-free design.
