Paper Abstract

With the ever increasing complexity of designs, the ability to validate and optimize the overall design while simultaneously considering all of the sub-systems, has become increasingly important. System simulation tools seek to address this need by combining control system models and physical device models with links to detailed physics based tools, thereby enabling more complex designs and encouraging collaboration. In this paper, we describe a new state-ofthe- art approach to link a high level system simulation tool (Simplorer) with a fast and accurate rigid dynamics tool (RBD) and its application to multi-physics system design. This approach allows the designer to combine detailed rigid mechanics models with system models such as complex electronic semiconductor device models used in controls.
