    Announcements: FREE TI WEBENCH® Altium Connector Extension

    Daniel Fernsebner
    |  February 21, 2017

    I’m very pleased to announce the release of another great 3rd party extension for Altium Designer®, the WEBENCH® Altium Connector.

    The WEBENCH® Design Center and WEBENCH® Simulation Engine assist enormously with the development of power, lighting, filtering, clocking and sensing designs. Allowing you to generate, optimize and simulate designs, while making the necessary value-based tradeoffs to meet your design and supply chain requirements.

    The free WEBENCH® Altium Connector provides both an interface to the online WEBENCH® Design Center and an offline interface to the WEBENCH® Simulation Engine, allowing the following:

    • Access WEBENCH® Design Center from Altium and optimize your design.
    • Export that design from WEBENCH® to Altium .
    • Simulate any using the fast WEBENCH® Simulation Engine from Altium .

    Details about using this extensions can be found in Altium Techdocs, here and more about WEBENCH® from Texas Instruments can be found here. Below are installation and licensing instructions.

    Kind Regards and Thanks,

    Dan

    Installation and Setup

    The extension is visible to subscription customers from Altium ,DXP™ > Extensions and Updates > Purchased. A WEBENCH® license from Texas Instruments is required.

    Installing License for WEBENCH® Simulation Engine:

    • When you run the WEBENCH simulation engine for first time on a design, it will ask for a node license.
    • Attach the logfile showing the WBSE license not found and send an email to wbse@ti.com for a license. This file is needed for generating a WEBENCH® Simulation Engine license.
    • Once license is received, rename the license file as "node_license" (if not already done) and place it in <WEBENCH Extension Installation Directory>\WBSE.
      Usually you will find it in c:\ProgramData\Altium\Altium {2F259E6B-E4FF-4EB4-9ABC-063D5507D841}\Extensions\WEBENCH\WBSE\node_license
    •  You are ready to use the WEBENCH® Simulation Engine.

    Note: The received license file may have some extension associated with it. The license file must be renamed to "node_license", removing any extension if present.
