Simscape Electronics

Model and simulate electronic and mechatronic systems

Simscape™ Electronics™ provides component libraries for modeling and simulating electronic and mechatronic systems. It includes models of semiconductors, motors, drives, sensors, and actuators. You can use these components to develop electromechanical actuation systems and to build behavioral models for evaluating analog circuit architectures in Simulink®. You can integrate mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, and other physical systems into your model using components from the Simscape family of products.

Simscape Electronics helps you develop control algorithms in electronic and mechatronic systems, including vehicle body electronics, aircraft servomechanisms, and audio power amplifiers. The semiconductor models include nonlinear and dynamic temperature effects, enabling you to select components in amplifiers, motor drives, analog-to-digital converters, phase-locked loops, and other circuits. You can parameterize your models using MATLAB® variables and expressions. To deploy models to other simulation environments, including hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) systems, Simscape Electronics supports C-code generation.
