TI and Altium get together on power design
The system interface, the WEBENCH Altium Connector, can be downloaded from the two companies’ websites.
A power supply design created in WEBENCH can be exported and simulated offline inside Altium Designer. The offline simulation engine also can be used to simulate any analogue circuit created in Altium Designer.
As a result the power supply design and simulation tool van be used with Altium’s native 3D PCB design tools in a complete analogue circuit design environment.
According to Jason Hingston, CTO at Altium, this creates a “complete and powerful end-to-end analogue circuit design creation and simulation environment to help speed product development time and reduce overall costs.”
WEBENCH Altium Connector is available to all Altium Designer subscribers as a cost-free extension.
