System Modeling, Simulation & Analysis
On-demand Web Seminar
This webinar will present an innovative system-integration methodology, illustrated using sample systems, to help you create a fully functioning, on-time product, rather than one that gets to market late, with intermittent field failures.
Today’s cross-discipline electro-mechanical or “mechatronic” systems (combining mechanical, electrical, control, and software systems) require highly coordinated modeling, simulation, and interaction among members of the extended design team.
What You Will Learn
- Basic analog, digital, mixed-signal and multi-technology modeling, leveraging a large library of built-in SPICE models, easily added vendor models, and using datasheet-driven graphical modeling methods.
- Digital hardware modeling and simulation—running in the context of a complete electro-mechanical/mechatronic system.
- Parametric and statistical analysis methods to improve quality and reduce manufacturing and warranty costs.
- Going beyond analog and digital electronics to include thermal, electro-magnetic and mechanical components, as well as digital logic and other critical aspects of the mechatronic system, using VHDL-AMS.
- Collaboration with colleagues who are using Simulink for control algorithm design, so they can include higher fidelity hardware models “in-the-loop.”
- Execution and verification of C-code from your embedded system control or supervisory software function, also in the context of the mechatronic system.
