AVX Corp. has developed new component modeling and simulation software that can reduce cost, time to market and potential quality issues. Designated AVX Component Simulator, the software enables designers to view all basic characteristics and parameters for Accu-P, Accu-L, thin-film low-pass filters, couplers, 3dB splitters, Hi-CV SMT, LICC, LGA and IDC products. The simulation software features multiple parameter graphing options, including Smith Charts, S-parameter, ESR, impedance, current, inductance and capacitance values.
“Our new Component Simulator tool improves the PC-based design process for the broad spectrum of our advanced components,” said Jiri Pernicky, marketing communications manager. “However, for this approach to be effective, high-quality models are required to show realistic behavior and not merely ideal performance. This is a great tool for design engineers to help in the selection of the correct rating for their application.”
The AVX Component Simulator generates appropriate product part numbers based on customers’ technical specifications. The software also provides Internet links for data sheets, samples and distributor stock checks.
