PARIS European chipmaker STMicroelectronics NV announced it is deploying Cadence's OrCAD PSpice technology to enable its customers to test-drive its analog and power IC product families.
STMicroelectronics (Geneva, Switzerland) said it will provide its customers models and recommend them to use Cadence's OrCAD PSpice analog and mixed-signal circuit simulator for the simulation and evaluation of its analog and power ICs. This initiative is part of the company's Sense and Power campaign that aims to support electronics engineers.
STMicroelectronics noted that its analog products are already supported by the free SMPS@eDesign Studio, created to help designing and simulating Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS) systems. Designs obtained with SMPS@eDesign Studio can be more accurately simulated with OrCAD PSpice technology.
The first product families that can deploy the Cadence OrCAD technology will be DC-DC converters and ViPER, STMicroelectronics noted.
