Ansoft Corporation has certified the VHDL-AMS models available from the FAT-AK30 working group of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (Verband der Automobilindustrie - VDA) to run in Simplorer, Ansoft's multi-domain system simulation software.
The German Association of the Automotive Industry includes automobile manufacturers and their development partners. The FAT-AK30 working group provides its open-source VHDL-AMS model library to support the interchange of models between automotive OEMs and their suppliers. Ansoft’s Simplorer is one of the tools used by AK30 members for verification and test of new models.
“Simplorer’s support of the VDA/FAT-AK30 VHDL-AMS models provides users with access to standardized automotive component models that can be readily placed within a design,” said Dr. Marius Rosu, Ansoft’s manager of Simplorer modeling development. “This simplifies the process of simulation, allows it to be used far earlier in the development process, and supports the seamless exchange of data between automotive suppliers and manufacturers.” Simplorer customers can download the FAT-AK30 model library at www.ansoft.com/simplorer/ libraries.cfm.
