Microchip’s Mindi Simulator Tool aids in the design and analysis of various analog circuits used in power management and linear applications. The interactive tool enables designers to quickly generate circuit diagrams, simulate circuits and specify passive components for a variety of power, battery-charger, and linear applications. Circuits developed using the Mindi simulation tool can be downloaded to a personal computer (PC) or workstation and can often be ported directly into system diagrams.

This application note describes how to use the Power Management circuit design and analysis portion of the Mindi design tool, and serves as a tutorial for simulating a power management application circuit.
