APPLICATION NOTE 6506

Why SIMPLIS is Better Than SPICE for Power Circuits

By: Brooks Robert Leman and Erin Mannas

Abstract: Power circuits are difficult to simulate; however, simulation is an essential way to help ensure that the design will work in production. In the end, simulation also saves time and money. This application note compares two power simulation engines, SIMPLIS and SPICE, and shows why SIMPLIS is ultimately the more effective option for power circuits.
