WEBENCH Power Designer and Architect

WEBENCH Power Designer and Architect

"The WEBENCH environment provides the end-to-end design and prototyping tools you need to create power supplies or DC-DC Converters that meet your design requirements."

Power Designer - Expert Tips and Techniques for Power Supply Design. Examples - Simple Switcher, Power Supply, Voltage References, Lighting, Battery Management, Voltage Regulators, DC-DC Voltage Converters.

WEBENCH Power Architect

WEBENCH Power Architect lets engineers quickly design and simulate a complete power supply system for any number of supplies and outputs. System designers can optimize the entire power supply system for small footprint, high efficiency, and cost in minutes.
  • Quickly design and simulate your entire power supply system 
  • Easily configure the power supply load requirements for voltage and current
  • Optimize the overall footprint, efficiency, and BOM cost for the entire system 
  • Get the schematic and BOM for the complete power supply system 
  • Perform electrical simulation and thermal simulation

CircuitLab - Online Schematic Editor & Simulator

Draw and print beautiful schematics for lab reports. In-browser simulations make it easy to quickly learn electronics concepts. No need to Install, it is a Online Web Application !

CircuitLab - Online Schematic Editor & Simulator

Test and Simulate circuit ideas before breadboarding. SPICE-like models with a mixed-mode simulation engine help you apply one tool to a wide range of design tasks, from digital to analog, DC to VHF and beyond.

BJT Cascoded Active-load Differential Amplifier with CMFB

BJT Cascoded Active-load Differential Amplifier with CMFB

Build non-op-amp Common-Mode Feedback (CMFB) - This kind of high-gain differential input stage might be useful as part of an op-amp, but it's a bit silly to include an op-amp within a stage another op-amp......

Some Examples
  • 555 Timer as Oscillator / PWM Generator
  • 7805 & Wall-wart Experiencing Voltage Drop-out
  • Digital 4-bit counter and DAC
  • Diode full-wave (bridge) rectifier
  • Laplace transform step response and Bode plot
  • LED with resistor biasing
  • MOSFET switching inductive load
  • Op-Amp inverting / non-inverting amplifier
  • RLC resonance
  • Zener diode voltage reference

Syscomp Electronic Design

Syscomp Electronic Design was incorporated in 1979 to develop custom electronic and computer equipment. Syscomp developed the first computer-based moving grid intervalometer for aerial photography and the first computer-based mixer for theatrical sound effects.

Syscomp Electronic Design

The first two products were DSO-101 oscilloscope and WGM-101 waveform generator, both USB driven instruments using open software.

Tech Design Forum - Design Method Curation

Tech Design Forum - Design Method Curation

A trusted resource which gives hardware and software engineers the information and analysis they need to make the best technology decisions.

"The Curation Company is led by three experienced journalists who together have more than 60 years’ experience of understanding technical markets.."

Do you need a 1GHz MPU to run Linux and Android?

"Many systems other than smartphones would like to benefit from the standardization of Android’s offerings, but over a completely different UI. One option here is the Inflexion UI GUI tool from Mentor Graphics. It also enables applications to use the Android Dalvik framework, but allows device manufacturers to quickly and easily create their own UIs and get the most out of the hardware, even if the hardware does not have an expensive GPU."

"But not all embedded systems require whizz-bang features and a blazing fast microprocessor (MPU). Vertical markets such as home and commercial applications, point-of-sale terminals...."
