This paper presents a new method to model electronic circuits; considering not only the electrical aspect of the circuit but also its geometrical and multiphysical aspects via DYMOLA [1]. The new modeling method based on the representation of the electronic components and their environments; with the multi-domain models. This means combining the geometrical; electrical and multi-physicscal properties in one single mechatronical model. This kind of representation will allow us to simulate the electronic environments regarding their multi-domain aspects and relations. This new method will allows us to perform the pre-dimensioning and pre-placement of the components; through a simple modeling process in DYMOLA environment. We expect the result to be a more rapid pre-dimensioning procedure for the electrical circuits.
