Simple Models Allow Simulation and Verification Early in the Design 2015-01-1375

Compressed development cycles drive increased focus on virtual development, including both functional verification and quantitative simulation of electrical system designs. However, one hurdle often cited is the effort needed to develop behavioral models of electrical components such as wires, fuses, and ECUs and time required to run simulation. This presentation shows that it is fully possible to obtain reliable and “good enough” results to aid product development using simpler models and rule based verifications. By placing these models in a re-usable library and providing a simple, visual interaction environment, early design debugging using a computer becomes possible for every electrical engineer.
