10 to 50 times faster than SPICE - SIMPLIS is a component
level simulator like SPICE but simulates power switching circuits
typically 10 to 50 times faster.
Periodic operating point (POP) analysis. POP analysis
rapidly locates the steady state operating point of a switching
system without having to simulate the startup transient conditions.
This considerably speeds the study of effects such as load transients.
Small signal AC analysis. Unlike the static methods
used in SPICE, this analysis mode emulates a frequency sweep measurement
as might be conducted on real hardware producing gain and phase
plots without having to derive averaged models.
SPICE model conversion. SPICE models for MOSFETs,
diodes, zener diodes and bipolar transistors may be converted to
SIMPLIS format without requiring user intervention.
Fully integrated into SIMetrix environment. The
SIMPLIS simulator works in the SIMetrix environment in exactly the
same way as its native SPICE simulator. This includes full schematic
support, schematic cross probing and all waveform viewer features.

Can use SPICE models for power MOSFETs, diodes,
zener diodes and bipolar transistors.
Mature. SIMPLIS has been available since 1991
on the UNIX platform and so has stood the test of time.
