VisSim expands toolchain with Digital Power Designer
Visual Solutions Incorporated (VSI) (Westford, Massachusetts) has announced the immediate availability of VisSim/Digital Power Designer, a new high level block set for simulation and auto code generation of Digital Power Supplies.
Available from Adept Scientific (Letchworth, Herts) VisSim/Digital Power Designer allows you to quickly create models of complete power systems with a wide selection of digital control schemes, analogue power stages and loads. Building on the existing Embedded Controls Developer platform, VisSim/Digital Power Designer generates highly efficient embedded C-code to realise the firmware for the control of Texas Instruments MCUs.
VisSim/Digital Power Designer provides:
- Controllers (Multi-phase VMC, Peak CMC, Average CMC, Hysteretic CMC, PFC, PSFB, Zero-transition CMC)
- Filters (1st order, 2nd order, Moving Average, Moving Median)
- Measurements (Apparent Power, Crest Factor, Reactive Power, RMS, THD, etc)
- Utility functions (Event counter, soft-start, window detector)
- Converters (Buck, Boost, Buck-boost, Sepic, Cuk, Zeta, Full-bridge, Half-bridge, Push-pull, Flyback, Forward, Rectifiers and Bridgeless PFC)
- Configurable analogue power stage with user selectable resistance, capacitor bank and inductance
- Sensors (AC current transformer, isolated current Hall-effect, isolated voltage, resistive current sense, resistive divider (voltage sense)
- Loads (Constant-current, Constant-power, Load profiles, Inductive, nonlinear glitching, LED strings, Parallel connector)
- Compensators (PI, PID (traditional), PID (2p2z), Types I, II and III, 3p3z)
- Supports TI Piccolo, Delfino, Concerto and MSP430 targets with CCS V4&V5.
