Online circuit simulation tool for SiC devices from Wolfspeed
Wolfspeed is offering a PLECS platform based free online circuit simulation tool to simulate and evaluate the performance of Silicon Carbide based power electronics circuits, where the tool provides option to select optimal SiC devices for different applications, saving the design engineers time from manually comparing Silicon Carbide device by scanning through various specifications in the datasheet.
Power electronics design engineers can use this software tool to simulate any SiC-based power converter circuit topology: DC/DC, AC/DC, or DC/AC. By using the data Keyed in or entered by design engineer SpeedFit tool generates performance analysis of SiC device such as voltage and current waveforms, average switching and conduction losses, and maximum junction temperature for specific operating conditions.
"Engineers have the ability to select a topology, specify their recommended SiC power device or choose one from the library, define their thermal interface parameters and cooling method, and see the results immediately. The Speedfit simulation tool also allows users to specify external gate resistance, as well as major passive component values present in the circuit, allowing them to compare performance results for several different circuit configurations and devices. The tool quickly, easily, and accurately summarizes system parameters, device part numbers, and simulation results in a single, concise report."explained in the release.
