For today's short product development cycles, NXP® helps you to simplify your design. SimPort makes it easy to calculate efficiency, predict real-word performance, simulate a design, and track your findings.
The Active Datasheet lets you vary the test conditions and redraw many of the graphs typically provided in a conventional datasheet. The online Buck Designer prompts the user for a few basic parameters and then calculates the most efficient MOSFET combinations for a given synchronous buck regulator. The pre-designed analog simulation features let you adjust component values to reflect different devices (like inductors and capacitors), and lets you generate input, output, and switching waveforms. And, when you're done, the Design Summary tab gives you a handy summary of all the design parameters and waveforms.
The first web based design and monitoring solution for power management ICs compliant with the current PMBus protocol specifications is now live. NXP´s PIP8000 power-supply interface lets the designer configure, sequence, and monitor power supplies using PMBus commands.
