REDEXPERT

Easy Component Selection and Performance Simulation

REDEXPERT Online Platform

From Lab to Desk in Seconds

Listening is the first step when it comes to developing innovations for our customer's needs. We do not only provide products but also solutions to make the everyday work of engineers easier. Here it comes to innovative tools like our REDEXPERT design platform.

The platform provides low entry access to electronics design with highly accurate component and circuit models. You can easily filter on various product features, or determine the performance within your application, and compare them in charts. All data based on lab measurements.

Get the inductor AC and DC losses for your DC-DC converter or design an EMI filter – all based on your specific application. It will drastically reduce your time needed to select the best component.

REDEXPERT is a service from engineers for engineers. It’s more than you would expect because it offers simulation models that are not simply based on data sheet specifications, but on real measurement data from Würth Elektronik's laboratories.

More Information

The picture consists of 4 single pictures. At the top a current of a DC/DC application is shown, at the second place a corresponding component with oscillations around it and at the third and last place a diagram of the current flow is shown.

Losses in storage chokes are one of the crucial factors in the design of efficient power supplies. With our world's most accurate AC loss model in REDEXPERT, the complete AC losses can be precisely simulated at any operating condition.

Advantages of the Würth Elektronik AC Loss Model

Components
  • All core material types
  • All core geometries (not only toroidal cores)
  • Air gap and associated fringing effects
  • Effects and changes in winding structure
  • DC bias is taken in consideration for inductor recommendation and calculations
Method

The model was measured with a square wave voltage resulting and a triangular inductor current.

Accuracy

Compared to Steinmetz, the Würth Elektronik model provides higher accuracy over a wide range of duty cycle.

With this application, you can design a discrete EMI filter for conducted differential noise from your input parameters. This application takes the guesswork out of EMI and reduces the time and cost.  It is the first filter tool from a component manufacturer on the market.

Functions

  • Topology recommendation based on impedance, insertion loss & cutoff frequency
  • Component recommendation considering noise source and load impedance, cutoff frequency and parameters
  • Automatic selection from thousands of components
  • Shows insertion loss and input/output impedance
  • Simulation of non-ideal components

Redexpert API

Data and simulation results in real time

Data and simulation results in real time

With an API (Application Programmable Interface) two software systems can exchange data without manual intervention. For our customers and partners, we have developed a REST API that enables a connection to your systems. You can use parts data and simulation results in your external customer facing tools or in your internal systems.

How an API works is explained in the external 3 min video on the right.

This video shows external content from YouTube. 

What you will get

Connecting to our systems via API will offer you a variety of choices of data you can select from.

Product Data

Get all specified properties of each article, mechanical and electrical.

Also get the datasheet, 3D and EDA models, S-parameter files and spice models.

Table showing data from Redexpert
Extended Product Details

For all products in our design platform REDEXPERT we offer extended component information, like detailed component characteristics on various frequency, temperatures, currents or voltages.

Simulation results

Get simulation results for each article, or a subsystem with your application requirements. For example, specify the parameters of your buck converter and get AC losses, DC losses and temperature rise for each power inductor or just the recommended parts.

This is how the REDEXPERT API works

For design tools we recommend using our REDEXPERT API. To get all WE-PD power inductors you can call our API with e.g. a call like this:

http://www.we-online.com/redexpert/api/v1/products
?module=4
&type=single
&series=we-pd
&size=7332
&inductance=gte:0.000022|lte:0.000033
&outp=series,order_code,Inductance,

rated_current,saturation_current

And it will return a list like shown in the picture on the right.

Web Code showing the data for the API

Or you can simulate a buck converter and return the 5 most recommended power inductors:

?converter=buck
&vin=21&vout=15&iout=15&fsw=500000
&max_results=5
