I'm considering this tool as a replacement for SIMetrix/SIMPLIS for the simulation of DC-DC converter feedback loop response.
I would appreciate answers to questions as follows:
MPLAB Mindi seems free (as in beer), without limits in circuit size / complexity? (such as those imposed by SIMetrix/SIMPLIS Elements, that's the free flavour of SIMetrix/SIMPLIS). Is that correct?
Is the MPLAB Mindi's IDE in line to that of the "new generation" MPLAB? (I dislike that IDE).
How do these two compare in terms of usability? (I would like to know this from anyone who has used both.)
Do these two tools use the same file format for schematics?
I'd also appreciate any other words of advice from people who has used both of these tools.
