AVX AVV900 SpiCalci 9.0 Simulation Software PR.jpeg

AVX updates the SpiCalci simulation software, an engineering tool that calculates performance characteristics and parameters for switch mode power supply (SMPS) capacitors. Featuring additions designed to improve user experience, SpiCalci 9.0 helps design engineers identify and select the best SMPS capacitor solutions for applications in the military, aerospace, automotive, alternative energy, motor drive, oil and gas, and power inversion, conversion, and supply industries. SpiCalci 9.0 users can input and select various raw data, including part type, case size, voltage, dielectric, capacitance, tolerance, ambient temperature, temperature rise, and operating frequency for catalog, military, and aerospace parts. Output data then is provided in two categories: Specifications for this Design and Specifications Varying with Temperature. Various output graphs also can be generated. SpiCalci 9.0 is packaged using Install Shield to facilitate installation on various operating systems.
