ON Semiconductor launches GreenPoint Interactive Online Design Simulation tool

ON Semiconductor together with Transim Technology today launched its interactive GreenPoint online design simulation tool for high-efficiency LED based lighting applications.


 

The GreenPoint design tool is an interactive online design and verification environment that assists in accelerating the board design of solid state lighting solutions. Utilizing a user’s design requirements – such as LED configuration, voltage, current or switching frequency – the GreenPoint design tool automatically calculates optimum circuit configuration and selects appropriate values for inductors and capacitors. The resulting design is displayed as an interactive online schematic. The GreenPoint design tool then enables testing of the suggested solution using Transim’s proprietary WebSIM technology. Essentially, it is a virtual online test bed that provides a variety of analyses, which enables engineers to effectively and efficiently test the performance of the solution.


Once the design has been verified, the GreenPoint Design Tool generates a Bill of Materials and a comprehensive design report including simulation results, schematic, and design data. ON Semiconductor’s e-commerce tools are integrated with the GreenPoint Design Tool, which allows users to pick and choose vendor parts for a qualified bill of materials. Designs can be saved and shared for future reference and further modification in the user’s secure and private workspace.

“The market for solid state lighting continues to grow as new and traditional manufacturers look to capitalize on the performance, cost, reliability and efficiency benefits that LEDs offer over conventional alternatives,” said Laurent Jenck, director of ON Semiconductor’s LED Lighting segment. “The new GreenPoint design tool enables designers of new and emerging lighting applications to dramatically reduce development times by providing an easily accessible design environment from the convenience of their desks.”

“We are very pleased to be able to partner with ON Semiconductor in developing a powerful online design tool to support high-efficiency LED-based lighting applications," said Birgit Knorr, president and CEO of Transim Technology.
