Parametric Search For Semiconductors In Library Matching Key Criteria

Status: New

This is not the first time this suggestion has been forwarded to NI. The process of semiconductor component selection in Msim is BACKWARDS. Components are frequently chosen to base a design upon because they are available, the price is right, already in stock, etc. Quite frequently these parts are not found in the component library. There is no way to identify which components in the library may be used as a satisfactory replacement for simulation purposes without going back to a vendor site (NI preferred vendor obviously because those vendor's parts are what's in the NI library.....) and start a tiresome search for a compatible part and whether or not it is in the NI library. That's a ridiculous process and waste of time. This request is to expand the NI semiconductor component library databases to include key semiconductor criteria, depending on device type of course,  such as hfe & HFE, Ft, leakage, capacitance/switching time, Vsat, Vf, Vgt, Igt, Ih, It, IDSS, RDS, channel mode, Vz, Iz and so forth. There should be little difficulty obtaining this from your vendor library sources and associating a part number with it's key criteria just as the vendor does to make part selection possible.
