The "Microcomputer Boom allows designers to run performance programs with rather low investments in personal computers such as IBM PC, PS, Macintosh and other stations with graphic terminals. SPICE was one of the simulation programs which was formerly available only on main computers but now can be used on personal computers.
In power electronics, being able to simulate the power dissipation is key for a designer. Up to now, very few solutions by simulations have been possible, primarily because both component and programming experience was required. A university in Toulouse, France (LAAS-CNRS) and a component manufacturer (Motorola) put their efforts together to build a power MOSFET (TMOS) library to solve this problem. A library has been conceived that is as universal as possible and can be implemented in different programs.
