Gardena, California - March 29, 2004 - Intusoft announced today that its SPICE modeling capability has been extended to users of the company's ICAP/4 simulation software, and the overall engineering community, on a no-charge basis.
Intusoft has historically augmented its simulation offering by providing a wealth of analog, digital, mixed signal and systems level models to its software component library, now reaching 18,200 in part count, not including resistors and capacitors. It was the decision of Larry Meares, president and founder of Intusoft, to now exclusively drive new model additions directly from the engineering community. "This is the best way to comply with today's demand for SPICE models, by respecting the needs of the engineering tool user."
The modeling service directs an inquirer to fill out a Model Request Form, specifying their company and contact information. They must also provide a link to the model's datasheet, application notes and test circuitry. For those not using Intusoft's simulation tools, the inquirer can download a free version of the ICAP/4 analog and mixed-signal SPICE software and create their own custom test circuit for the model. Tim Ghazaleh, marketing director for Intusoft, replied that the free modeling service is another key way Intusoft is strengthening its relationship marketing program to its customer base and engineering community. The program forms a communication channel to Intusoft's marketing organization, with corresponding ties to the development team.
The ICAP/4 SPICE simulation product line encompasses several model development tools for users to create their own discrete parts, active ICs and non-linear magnetic models. These include datasheet entry, synthesis and test for several types of discrete parts; modeling frameworks for active devices; C-code modeling kit; B-element modeling for specialized analog functions; and Intusoft's "Magnetic Designer," which synthesizes non-linear magnetic devices.
Established in 1985, Intusoft designs, develops and markets award-winning software to electronics industries worldwide. Its products target a breadth of applications across all industrial, technological, military and consumer industries, by providing leading tools for analog and mixed-signal circuit design, verification and automated test synthesis.
