March 5, 2020 - ROHM announces a web simulation tool, “ROHM Solution Simulator”, that allows designers of electronic circuits and systems in the automotive and industrial markets to simultaneously verify power devices and ICs on 44 different solution circuits.
In addition to focusing on developing and supporting application circuits that maximize the characteristics of driver ICs and power devices designed to supply high power in the automotive and industrial equipment markets, ROHM offers the simulator, ROHM Solution Simulator, that allows users to perform systematic verification of power devices and ICs. Among these, validation of SiC devices and gate driver ICs for driving SiC ranks among the most advanced initiatives in the industry.
ROHM Solution Simulator is a web-based electronic circuit simulation tool that can carry out a variety of simulations, from initial development that involves component selection and individual device verification to the system-level verification stage. This makes it possible to implement systematic verification of ROHM power devices (i.e. SiC) and ICs (e.g. driver and power supply ICs), in simulation circuits under close to actual conditions, reducing application development load.
The simulator was developed to work with the SystemVision Cloud simulation platform from Mentor, a Siemens business, a leader in electronic design automation software with an extensive track record in the automotive industry. As a result, users with an SVC account can also perform verification in a more realistic environment by incorporating simulation data executed by the ROHM Solution Simulator into their own SVC workspace.
ROHM Solution Simulator can be used free of charge by simply registering on ROHM’s official website. In addition to the simulator, the following dedicated page provides access to tutorial videos and documents required for use.
ROHM will continue to contribute to reducing development load while facilitating evaluation by providing additional solution circuits and products compatible with ROHM Solution Simulator along with a Solutions EVK (evaluation kit) capable of evaluating simulated circuits as-is.
