MPLAB® Mindi™ Analog Simulator Hands On Workbook

Last modified by Microchip on 2024/01/08 16:36

The MPLAB® Mindi Analog Simulator is a free, stand-alone simulator software that reduces circuit design time and design risk. It simulates analog circuits before hardware prototyping. The simulation tool uses a SIMetrix/SIMPLIS simulation environment with options to use SPICE or piecewise linear modeling to cover a wide set of possible simulation needs. This capable simulation interface is paired with proprietary model files from Microchip to model specific Microchip analog components in addition to generic circuit devices. Finally, this simulation tool installs and runs locally on the user’s PC. Once downloaded, no internet connection is required and the simulation run time is not dependent on a remotely located server. The result is fast, accurate analog circuit simulation.
