New simulation libraries for LTspice

The EPCOS website now offers specially-adapted models for inductive components for the circuit simulation program LTspice from Linear Technologies under The models can be integrated directly into the current versions of the respective simulation environment and work in both SwCAD III and LTspice IV program versions. The simulation models deliver fast and exact results that allow designers to create high-quality electronic products more quickly.

The data for new and improved components has been entered into the simulation libraries. These include power line chokes of the series B82722*/24*/25* and SMT power inductors (7.3 x 7.3) of the series B82472*.

Each library is also available for Cadence ORCAD Capture/ PSpice, HSPICE, and Ansoft Designer/ Nexxim in English and German for the Windows and UNIX/ LINUX operating systems. Depending on the selected operating system the files are packaged as ZIP or TAR archives.
