Abstract

This work describes the development of a software tool that implements a novel method for automatically generating simulation ready behavioral models for switching circuits with an emphasis on power regulators. The work begins by examining the theory of operation of both linear and switching regulators. Then, the capability of two behavioral modeling languages (Verilog-A and PSPICE ABM) are examined in detail. Next, the languages previously discussed are used to develop and test a model of a commercial regulator (Texas Instruments TPS40305). Finally, the prospect of automating the process is discussed
