SimElectronics

Model and simulate electronic and mechatronic systems

SimElectronics® provides component libraries for modeling and simulating electronic and mechatronic systems. The libraries include models of semiconductors, motors, drives, sensors, and actuators. You can use these components to develop electromechanical actuation systems and to build behavioral models for evaluating analog circuit architectures in Simulink®.

SimElectronics models can be used to develop control algorithms in electronic and mechatronic systems, including vehicle body electronics, aircraft servomechanisms, and audio power amplifiers. The semiconductor models include nonlinear and dynamic temperature effects, enabling you to select components in amplifiers, analog-to-digital converters, phase-locked loops, and other circuits. You can parameterize your models using MATLAB® variables and expressions. You can add mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and other components to a model using Simscape™ and test them in a single simulation environment. To deploy models to other simulation environments, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems, SimElectronics supports C-code generation.
