Discontinued in the end of September 2018.
A1 SEAT stands for SElection Assistant of TDK components. This software contains functions for displaying and comparing characteristics of TDK components, and functions such as pulse response simulation and inductor's and capacitor's characteristics simulation for confirming the dynamic behavior of components.
A2 Various kinds of impedance and S-parameters can be displayed.
Impedance characteristics such as magnitude value, phase, admittance, inductance, capacitance, tanδ, and Q can be displayed.
S-parameters such as magnitude value, phase, group delay time, Smith chart, and VSWR can be displayed. Mixed mode S-parameters, which are essential for analyzing balanced components, can also be handled.
In addition, it is possible to display the DC Bias / Temperature characteristics, the temperature-resistance characteristics of NTC thermistors, and the voltage-current characteristics of chip varistors.
A3 SEAT is equipped with the following simple simulations.
A4 This software is update every six months. Differential updates can be executed over the internet. From the Program Menu, select [SEAT Update] to update the program to the latest version.
A5 SEAT software requires high specifications due to its characteristics.
For more details, please refer to the download page.
SEAT is not compatible with Windows95, 98, ME, NT4.0, 2000.
Also, installation and execution must be done by someone with administrator authority.

A7 It is possible to install and execute SEAT 2010 and 2013 on the same computer. It is also possible to uninstall SEAT 2013 using [Add or Remove Programs].
A8 No. There is no such function available.
A9 SEAT component data uses actual measured data (impedance and S-parameters). Therefore SEAT requires a large amount of hard disk space.
You can select [Custom Installation] when installing the program and choose not to install unneeded items from the database to reduce the required hard disk space.
