Keysight Technologies Inc of Santa Rosa, CA, USA has been selected as an electronic design automation (EDA) partner by ON Semiconductor, delivering a design solution for power devices to increase reliability and accelerate time-to-market.

The power device industry is driven by demand for more energy-efficient products, such as power supplies and solar inverters that need greater efficiency and increased power density, notes Keysight. Electric vehicles (EVs) are pushing for more miles per charge and faster charging times. Wide-bandgap materials such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are enabling increased efficiency, and will power future applications for high performance and efficiency.

Since power device manufacturers need a reliable design solution for these new materials, Keysight says that its Power Electronics Design Bundle is tailored power electronics engineers, delivering a complete design workflow for power device design.

Keysight’s power electronics design solutions enable power device production across the entire workflow, from simulation, design and verification to manufacturing, deployment and optimization. The firm offers a complete electromagnetic circuit co-simulation environment with its Advanced Design System (ADS).

“Keysight’s power electronics design solution introduced a new level of accuracy and flexibility in studying design and device interactions, especially in applications based on wide-bandgap power devices,” comments Mehrdad Baghaie Yazdi, head of Wide Band Gap Application Engineering at ON Semiconductor. “Keysight’s Advanced Design System (ADS) software seamlessly integrates with ON Semiconductor’s advanced physical SPICE models and enables us to study, for the first time, device-environment interaction, providing deep insight into optimal application design from which both our internal test circuits and customers can benefit.”

Keysight’s power electronics design solutions integrate with an electromagnetic field solver, allowing designers to visualize effects of the design without the need to build and test time-consuming prototypes. This enhances a designer’s confidence and accelerates time-to-market, claims the firm.

“Keysight is playing a pivotal role in accelerating the time-to-market for switch-mode power supplies that utilize ON Semiconductor’s wide-bandgap devices,” says Charles Plott, worldwide design software planning manager for EEsof Electronic Design Automation (EDA) at Keysight.
