MPLAB® Mindi™ Analog Simulator reduces circuit design time and design risk by simulating analog circuits prior to hardware prototyping. The simulation tool uses a SIMetrix/SIMPLIS simulation environment, with options to use SPICE or piecewise linear modeling, that can cover a very wide set of possible simulation needs. This capable simulation interface is paired with proprietary model files from Microchip to model specific Microchip analog components in addition to generic circuit devices. Finally, this simulation tool installs and runs locally on the user’s own PC. Once downloaded, no internet connection is required, and the simulation run time is not dependent on a remotely located server. The result is fast, accurate analog circuit simulations.
Choose an existing solution or customize a suggested design. Schematics and component lists are included. View or modify your choice and, with one click, export the design files to MPLAB Mindi Analog Simulator for verification and analysis.
The latest version of MPLAB Mindi Analog Simulator improves the user experience by adding a more intuitive navigation system and built-in design analyzers for an expanded array of pre-installed Microchip product schematics.
There is a full set of self-paced online training modules in our hands-on workbook, and a getting started guide, to help new users navigate the SIMetrix/SIMPLIS simulation environment within the MPLAB Mindi Simulator. The Getting Started guide will walk you through the basic navigation in the tool, including simulations for the included schematics already setup within the software. Then, for more in-depth training, the hands-on workbook contains chapters with examples, methods and tips specific to simulation of different types of circuits - teaching setup and simulation of customized circuits for typical applications.
Model files can be used in MPLAB® Mindi™ Analog Simulator, or in SIMetrix/SIMPLIS software. Model libraries available are:
