Online design tools benefit circuit modeling, device performance simulation
Bourns, Inc. announced the addition of 3D, SPICE model, S-Parameter and LTspice files to the company’s website. Beneficial for circuit modeling and to simulate device performance, the company offers its 3D model files in IGS and STP formats, SPICE Model files in TXT or DOC formats, S-Parameter files in S2P formats, and LTspice files in LIB formats. Designers can find the new files by placing them in three locations on its homepage: on the “Data Sheet” search, from individual product pages and by clicking the “Design Files” button. Bourns provides 3D model files on most of its product lines. SPICE model files are currently available for several of the company’s TBU high-speed protectors (TXT), TVS diodes (DOC), and is offering S-Parameter (S2P) and LTspice (LIB) files for many of its inductor products. By supplying its SPICE files with the Bourns component’s critical specifications, engineers can simply load them into the program, test their circuit and make an informed decision about the device in their application. Compared to taking this essential information from the data sheet, access to these new design tools allows engineers to speed prototyping and application development.
