Renesas VP stands for “Renesas Virtual Power Lab.” and is a site for performing simulations of the power MOSFET operations of synchronous-rectified buck converters. Renesas VP enables you to calculate waveforms of buck converters or losses of power MOSFET in the power supply of a microcontroller or SOC board, such as a POL power supply, and so on.
This allows you to select the most suitable power MOSFETs when you start to design, and also helps speed up evaluation.
|With Renesas VP, our online MOSFET Design Tool you can... |

- My Renesas account is required in order to use Renesas VP. Please create an account if you don't already have one. on your subscription page, please confirm that that the Premium Service "Renesas VP" has been checked (it is checked by default for new accounts.)
- This site consists of two sections. One is ACTIVE DATASHEET, for simulating the chanracteristics of a power MOSFET itself, and the other one is BUCK DESIGNER, for simulating the operation of buck converters in a model circuit.
- Simulated graphs are shown in a viewer with common functions that allow you to scale, move and read a value by its marker. Please refer to the help in a viewer for further information.
- The target products are mainly the 10th-generation power MOSFETs and later. The selection of products will be expanded by adding newly-developed products.
- The latest product status of every Power MOSFETs can be checked on the Renesas website.
- Although simulation results have been confirmed to match observed results on our test boards, depending on your implementation conditions you may not get the same results. Therefore please check compatibility with your board by adjusting setup conditions or parameters of a model circuit. This will help you to check which parameters work for the characteristics you are interested in.
- Please use SWITCHING CIRCUIT for simulating a switching part only in view of detailed parameters such as the parasitic impedance of a board to check the switching waveform. Use SYSTEM SCHEMATIC for simulating the whole circuit, although detailed parameters are omitted, to check loop gains.
- The downloadable offline simulation tool performs all its original functions when a circuit schematic downloaded from this site is combined with Renesas power MOSFETs. Please note that it does not function correctly for other combinations using circuit schematics or power MOSFETs from another manufacturer.
- If there is no action for over half an hour during simulation, the system will time-out..
- The specifications in this system are subject to change without notice.
