Unformatted text preview: PSpice 9.2 Tutorial This tutorial is designed for the beginning student interested in simulating and designing circuits using PSpice 9.2. Below is an overview of each lesson. Lesson 0: Introduction (what you are reading right now) The introduction tells you about the various lessons that are included, tells about PSpice (installation, requirements, and where to get it). Lesson 1: Basic DC Analysis, DC Bias This lesson introduces you to the basics of DC bias. It goes over such concepts as connecting circuit elements, setting values, and grounds. It shows you how to selectively place the information on the schematic so that it is in a readable format. Lesson 2: Transient Analysis Basics This lesson introduces some of the more common voltage sources that you are likely to use. It gives an introduction to probe and some of the more common features. Lesson 3: Advanced Probe Functions Lesson 3 introduces the sine wave, square wave, and triangle wave for simulation. It also goes indepth into markers and some advanced probe functions that are available Lesson 4: Frequency Analysis, AC Sweep This lesson introduces the AC Sweep function as a tool for creating bode plots of circuits. Advanced markers are used for phase and magnitude measurers. Lesson 5: Parametric Analysis Parametric analysis is one of the more useful features for design involving optimization of circuits. PSpice can do work that could take you hours to do in just minutes (or seconds if your computer is faster) To give you an idea of which lessons are relevant to your level, look below Circuits 1 (220) Lessons 1,2,&3 Circuits 2 (221) Lesson 4 Above 221 -- Lesson 5,6 Where to Get Pspice 9.2 If you are using your engineering college account, you have access through the start menu () You can download it from cadences website ( http://www .cadencepcb.com/products/downloads/Pspicestudent/defa ult.asp) which is a 28MB download You can obtain a CD from somebody (as of composition of this document, the author was unable to determine how to request a CD from Cadence through their web site) System Requirements for Pspice 9.2 (According to the CD Packaging) 133 MHz Intel Pentium of equivalent processor Windows 95 or more recent 32 MB RAM 50-75 MB free hard drive space per product installed 640 x 480 VGA, 256-color display or driver CD-ROM drive (if installing from CD) Mouse Installation To Install Pspice, you either put the CD into the appropriate drive or double-click the installation program. After clicking next on the first screen, the following screen will come up You must install Capture and Pspice to be able to simulate the circuits shown in this tutorial . Capture is the schematic layout of the circuit which produces the netlist for Pspice to simulate and display the data. You must have both installed. Capture CIS and Layout do not have to be installed....
