Pittsburgh, Pa. - To support educational programs in power electronics, drives and automotive technologies, Ansoft Corp. released Mar. 4 the free-of-charge, student version of its Simplorer 5.0 mixed-technology simulator.

"We had great success with previous student versions of Simplorer, and thousands of teachers and students have used the software," says Uwe Knorr, Ansoft's EM product marketing manager. "The unique combination of multiple technical disciplines in one easy-to-use, Windows-based software package makes Simplorer especially appealing for courses in power electronics, control, and systems design. We encourage students, teachers, engineers and researchers to download Simplorer, since everyone can benefit from the software's enhanced mixed-signal simulation capabilities."

The student version, which users can download for free on Ansoft's web site at www.ansoft.com , doesn't need activation or licensing, and is ready to use after installation. It has all the features of the Simplorer basic version. Only the number of models that can be used per schematic is limited. Also, users can download electronic versions of the manual and a "Getting Started" booklet.

An example database also is available as a separate download. Examples include basic teaching topics for use in electrical engineering and control theory courses, as well as more complex systems in the field of power electronics and drive systems design.
