Of course, then we would never pay for the good stuff that works and has lots of features we can never understand because we can't attend the suppliers training program. Mentor does have online training and I have watched the videos over and over. They are still lacking.
PowerESim is a new CAD tool on the Internet for Switching Power Supplies http://www.poweresim.com/ . I heard about it quite recently but it seems to be an interesting tool. Another interesting EE FEA tool is Quickfield from http://www.ocsimize.com/ because it interfaces with LTSpice so it is quite handy.... Best regards, Jgo
