Keysight Technologies announced Power Electronics Professional (PEPro) software, a new add-on to PathWave Advanced Design System (ADS) that enables designers to visualize effects of switched-mode power supply (SMPS) designs without the need to build and test time-consuming prototypes.
Keysight’s PEPro software makes post-layout analysis as easy as pre-layout analysis. It includes automatic setup that previously required an expert. In addition, it offers pre-built analyses of effects such as voltage spiking and electromagnetic interference (EMI).
“Keysight understands that customers value application-specific post-layout analysis tools over more general-purpose ones,” said Colin Warwick, product manager for power electronics EDA tools at Keysight. “I’m pleased that we can add PEPro to the family. It’s tailor-made for solving the challenges that SMPS designers face in this high switching speed era.”
Pre-production PEPro is available to select customers under the Early Access program for ADS. The production version will be available on July 1st.
PEPro will be on display at Keysight’s booth #111 at the IEEE Applied Power Electronics Conference 2019 (APEC 2019) to be held at the Anaheim Convention Center, California, March 18-20, 2019.
