Using PSpice to design and test your next project!
The traditional way of circuit design was to build a physical prototype, test it over a range of operating voltages, signal levels, temperatures and other factors, then tweak, and test some more. Not only can this be hugely time consuming and frustrating it is no longer necessary. This changed with the arrival Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis (SPICE) in the 1970s. Today PSpice offers valuable features for circuit designers - saving time and gaining insight with computer simulation.
The ARRL Circuit Simulation and Analysis book is an introduction to designing and testing simple circuits using PSpice software. It discusses the tools you'll need to create simple circuits and understand their behaviour, prior to building them in the real world. From the experienced circuit builder to the beginner with a limited background in basic electronics PSpice can be the essential tool in evaluating circuit performance. Readers will find chapters dedicated to the OrCAD User Interface, Netlist Element Lines, Netlist Control Lines, Basic Simulation Types and PSpice Probe Tool. The book does not stop there and you will also find chapters on Semiconductors, Miscellaneous Components, Transmission Lines, Sub-circuits, Advanced Analysis and even sample Circuits.
ARRL Circuit Simulation and Analysis provides a great introduction to the PSpice and is the ideal companion for anyone who constructs their own circuits.
