3.1 What is Component Finder? Back to top
With the Component Finder, users can replace components with other models and view component characteristics.

3.2 How to start the Component Finder page without topology Back to top
Add a component with the Add part tool (Please refer to Session 14--Add Parts).
In the component list of BOM or Add part, click the blue button with the Designator to enter Component Finder page.

3.3 Introduction about interface (without topology) Back to top
  1. Component Designator
  2. Search Criteria Setting Area
  3. Searched Component List
  4. Selected Component List
  5. Selected Component Box
  6. Component Analyzing Tools
  7. Component Shape Display
  8. No. of this component in parallel / in series
  9. Sample Request

3.3.1 Component Designator Back to top
The component designator is shown on the top left corner of the interface.

3.3.2 Change searching criteria Back to top
There are two methods available to search for components in the database. However, these two methods cannot be both used at once.
  1. Change the range of searching criteria.
  2. Search component name by phrase Change the range of searching criteria. Back to top
For the upper part of searching criteria, users can enable or disable search criteria by checking or unchecking the box on the left.
Enter the value of searching range.
Click [Show Result] to update the searched component list.

For the lower part, select any choice in the combo box to enable searching criteria, and the component search list will be changed instantly. Search component name by phrase Back to top
Input the phrase in the following position.

3.3.3 Select / Change a component from database Back to top
Select any one component from the searched component list box.
Its total loss/highlighted loss/ Circuit Verification result will be shown next to the component name and next to the [Select One] button.

Click the [Select One] button after selecting one component from the searched component list box or double click any one component in the searched list box.
The component name in the selected component box under the [Delete All] button will be changed.
This means the user has changed the component.

Click [done] afterwards in order to apply the change.

3.3.4 Select multiple components Back to top
  1. Enable [Enable Optimization] or [Alternative Component]

  2. Multiple elements can be freely selected in searching list box by double-clicking them.

  3. All selected components in searching list box will be red in color and shown in the selected list box

  4. The system will select the optimum component and show it in the selected component box

3.3.5 Selected Component Box Back to top
The selected component that will be applied to the circuit design will be shown here.

3.3.6 Component Analysis Tools Back to top View Component Loss and Stress Summary Back to top
  1. Highlight any one component from the list
  2. Press [Component Loss and Stress Summary]
  3. The component analysis page will pop up
  4. If the highlighted component is changed, press [Component Loss and Stress Summary] again to refresh the component analysis page. View Component Characteristics Back to top
  1. Highlight any one component from the list
  2. Press [Component Characteristic]
  3. The component characteristic page of that component will be displayed
  4. If the highlighted component is changed, press "Component Characteristic" again to refresh the component characteristic page.
