EPC now included in NI’s Multisim 13.0 enhanced SPICE circuit simulation and design software

Efficient Power Conversion Corp (EPC) of El Segundo, CA, USA says that its enhancement-mode gallium nitride-on-silicon transistor (eGaN FET) SPICE models have been included in the latest version of National Instruments’ Multisim circuit simulation and design software. The Multisim toolkit enables engineers to easily calculate, change and sweep critical component parameters in advanced power conversion system applications.

“The EPC component models in Multisim 13.0 are now leveraged by thousands of engineers to improve power system efficiency, reduce final product size, reduce development cost, or a combination of all three,” says Mahmoud Wahby, product manager at National Instruments (NI). “Multisim is also a leading circuit design tool in both academia and with companies that are excited about basing their power electronics designs on cutting-edge components… We are looking forward to the future releases of eGaN FETs and their continued integration within Multisim,” he adds.

“To make eGaN FETs easy to use, we developed these devices to behave very much like silicon power MOSFETs, but with greatly enhanced high-frequency capability,” notes EPC’s co-founder & CEO Alex Lidow. “With the inclusion of our products in Multisim SPICE models, National Instruments provides user-friendly tools that make a significant impact in how easy it is to design with our eGaN devices,” he adds. “These device models will enable rapid time-to-market of power conversion systems taking full advantage of our high-performance gallium nitride power transistors.”

A webcast highlighting the features of EPC components in the Multisim database (as well as application examples where circuit simulation is vital in making accurate design decisions) is available for viewing at www.ni.com/webcast/3263/en.
