Verify your design from concept to product realisation
The integration of Cadence PSpice with MathWorks MATLAB and Simulink provides a complete system-level simulation solution for PCB design and implementation. Customers can now utilize PSpice for analog/mixed-signal simulation and perform MATLAB/Simulink behavioral-level modeling, analysis, and visualization in a single, integrated system design and debug environment, improving productivity and accelerating time to market.
Cadence partners with MathWorks to streamline system-level design and circuit-level implementation for mixed-signal internet of things (IoT) and automotive applications. Designers can now use the Cadence PSpice analog and mixed-signal simulator, perform MATLAB and Simulink behavioral-level modeling, analysis and visualization, and utilize all post-process MATLAB analysis and measurement functions in a single, integrated system design and debug environment, improving productivity and accelerating time to market. The integration of the PSpice simulator with MATLAB and Simulink provides a complete solution for PCB design and implementation.
Simulink is a multidomain simulation environment for dynamic systems that is used for algorithm development, system modeling and simulation, and verification in a broad range of applications in automotive, aerospace, semiconductor, communications and autonomous systems designs. PSpice is a SPICE-based simulator used for simulation of mixed-signal electrical and electronic circuits.
Prior to this integrated solution, customers had to simulate their design blocks independently without the ability to input feedback from one system into the other. In contrast, simulating the entire system-level design within the integrated debug environment results in a faster, less error-prone process. Such simulation and analysis capabilities are key for IoT customers who want to quickly assemble a board and get to market, and for automotive customers who are concerned about reliability, productivity, cost, manufacturing yield, etc.
Cadence has also enabled a bi-directional flow where designers can export behavioral models from Simulink to the PSpice simulator using model export through code generation, or bring PSpice models into Simulink using co-simulation. In addition, customers now have access to 34,000 PSpice models to combine with the Simulink library of blocks and models, allowing them to create and simulate designs much faster.
